3 years

Yesterday was my 3 year wedding anniversary. As I write this I'm nursing my almost three month old daughter. I live in a state almost 1,000 miles away from where I grew up. I'm not a famous photographer in a big city who wears outfits that only match because they don't match.
I could never have imagined my life would be what it is today 3 1/2 years ago when I met my brother's goofy best friend in Florida. I was on my Christmas break from school and had sworn off dating "boys." I would not have believed you if you told me I would marry him, move away from MN, give up my dreams of becoming a stylish, feminist photographer, have a baby and live a life full of more love than I thought possible.

Chuck, I love you more than I can find the words to say. Thank you - for pursuing the Lord, leading our family, loving me and our daughter, being so funny and open, loving people, being my best friend, knowing so much and not minding me asking a million questions about everything and for your sweet words... - for everything.

I promise to love you, serve you, listen to you, talk to you, raise a family with you, follow you anywhere and never leave you. As long as I'm living my best friend, lover, husband and baby's daddy you'll be.

The two of us last summer (I think) :)

Chuck grew up in Texas while Ginger was blossoming in Minnesota unaware that she would marry her brother's best friend and live in the South. They've been married 6 years and have two sweet babies. Ruby is 3 and Enzo is going on 2.
