Four years of bliss...

Today is our 4 year wedding anniversary...and although the title of this post humorously says 'four years of bliss', its not far off.  In other words, I would not have it any other way, and what could be more blissful than that?  For any of you who are married, you know its not always a walk in the park.  Our marriage is no exception.  There have been so many ups and downs, trials and tribulations and what not.  But honestly all of those struggles we have endured have made us closer and stronger than we ever could have been without them.  I think finding the beauty in these lessons as you go along, and still loving each other through it all, is what really matters.  

Yesterday James walked in the door from work with these beautiful flowers in hand.  I always think its cute the flowers he picks.  He thinks really hard about what I would like.  He always picks flowers I never would have picked myself, but I always love them.  He knew I would love the deep plum color of these, and he was right!  I put them in the big vase we had as our centerpiece on our wedding table.  I only break out this vase on special occasions. 
 Last year on our anniversary I did 4 blog posts about the story of us.  You can view them here, here, here and here.

This morning we are just kind of lounging around... I made this pretty treasury a bit ago, wishing we were close enough to the beach to go enjoy a stroll.  I think we are going out to eat somewhere tonite, and I just might wear my new blue velvet dress.
