We celebrate 2 years of Marriage!

"I, Sarah, take you, Jeremy, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to honor; from this day forward until death do us part." - Feast of St. Joseph the Worker May 1st, 2009

Jeremy and I have been blessed to have now been married 2 full years. These two years we have been blessed with love, a home, a child, and hope and joy for the future!

I am no expert on marriage but I have to say it doesn't take long to realize what marriage is REALLY about. Sacrifice. Yep, sacrifice, its often not pretty and although it sounds romantic it rarely is. With that said I LOVE being married and I love Jeremy far more and far deeper than I could have imagined. True love is selfless and although being selfless is often very very hard it is very very rewarding in the end.

"The best things in life are worth working for." It's true.

I could go on and on about the things I love about Jeremy but I'll stick with a few that blessed me on our Anniversary Day specifically.

Jeremy and I love our faith and the role it has in our lives and we enjoyed the day as we did our wedding day. Spending time in confession, prayer, mass, and joy to share this special day with Blessed Pope John Paul the Great...

 ...and Divine Mercy Sunday

Jeremy is also tremendously good at planning surprises for me and this day was no different! After having a delicious breakfast of a fruit tart he had bought for us...

...he mentioned a leak he had noticed in our basement. Oh, dear, a leak. Not good. I was only a few steps into our basement when I noticed a huge chest freezer he had bought me!!!! I have been wanting a chest freezer for at least a year and I often mentioned how much I would love one. He secretly researched it, bought it, carried it to the basement himself, and pulled off the surprise with ease. He is good and I jumped for joy at this surprise! Yipppeee!

To finish the wonderful day we enjoyed an amazing candle light steak dinner cooked by my dear sweet husband.

Then we watched 007 Casino Royal in our very own homemade movie theatre drinking wine to the glow of candles and blazing guns. A perfect day. It was so anointed and grace filled.

I love you Jeremy my best friend, my life partner, and my hearts love and laughter!
