happy 3rd anniversary to my love

It has been 3 years since I said "I do" to the man of my dreams!  We got married January 22, 2011 on my parents property on Maui.  It was gorgeous!  We were so thankful for all our friends & family that were able to travel from the mainland to Maui for our wedding!  

Matt & I had been friends for a few years before we got together.  I had the biggest crush on him!  But, I waited to see if this was the man that the Lord had for me.  I prayed.  Waited.  Prayed.  Then finally on July 18th, 2011 Matt asked me out.  A month later, August 28th, Matt proposed & then 5 months later we were married!  It may have seemed really fast to a lot of people, but you know when it is right.  I never had any doubts about Matt.  I knew he was the man that the Lord had for me & I have been extremely blessed!  Through good times & bad, we have stuck by one another.  You have to not be the taker but the giver in every relationship.  Matt continualy blesses me each & every day.  He still writes little love notes to me (I have saved every single one!).  He is an amazing man of God, loving husband, hard worker & caring father.  I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with you & I am so grateful for all your hard work at taking care of Oliver & I, so that way I am able to be a stay-at-home mom.  Matt, I love you more than a million Flipz! 

Here is just some pictures of our wedding & honeymoon...

Honeymoon in Kauai!

After 3 years, one of the biggest blessings in our lives has been little Oliver!  We love him to pieces & are so thankful the Lord has entrusted us to raise him to be a man of God.
