We're six years into this marriage gig and I feel like I'm only starting to scratch the surface of understanding it all. What it means to give yourself fully to someone and share your entire life,  while creating new life, with them - the power that comes from standing in that relationship with that person. There are few things I can think of more sacred than that. There is nothing in life I have found that is more exciting, challenging, funny, emotional, desirable, character building and worth it like marriage. I'm so grateful for the life we have built and for everything that sits ahead of us. I can't think of anything I want more than a lifetime of takeout and Netflix next to Jake.

I love that kid - a whole lot. Here's to six more!
