Our traditional Mexican posed picture for my Tia Esther and Tia Helen 🙂
I really cannot believe we’ve been married 6 years and together for 10. Marriage bliss? Heck No! Joy in my marriage? Definitely! It’s been a long 6 years. Years of self evaluation and change. We are definitely not who we used to be 10 years ago. Skateboarding punks who thrived on the social scene and late night skate seshes. 10 years, 2 kids, 2 dogs and 7 chickens later, I still couldn’t imagine being married to anyone else. To be quite honest, God is perfect and knew who was supposed to be my leader and father of my children. He gave me Gabe as the perfect gift to lead me through the rest of my days. Who else would put up with my locavore antics and silly backyard chicken dreams. He took the time to build me a chicken coop, raise my garden beds, and encourage me through it all. He is also there to steer me back to Christ when I tend to overlook him and get caught up in my oh so many crazy hobbies. He is also the most amazing father I could have ever asked for. He loves his boys so much and always takes the time to teach them things, read with them, laugh with them, wrestle and attack Mama! Of course he’s alway’s encouraging them to climb and jump and be boys which I swear is going to lead me to a heart attack one day, lol! I’m sure all of my friends that know Gabe can agree that he is genuine, real, loving, helpful, and a man of God. He is always there to encourage me in my faith. So on this day, I just wanted to reflect on God’s perfect gift and thank him for sending me my babe. Thank you Jesus!
