Two Years

Year Two <3

A little over a week ago, Zach and I celebrated our two year anniversary of dating.  I really cannot believe it has been two years. It seems like just yesterday we were meeting for the first time. We've done so many fun things together in the past two years. I feel like God has blessed me so much. Zach is so patient and funny and kind, not just to me, but to everyone.  He is also very determined and goal-oriented. He is well-rounded. He is adorable. And best of all, he loves Jesus. We try to pray together every night, and I believe that that is one of the things that has kept us going.

Zach was there for me during the hardest time in my life - last September when my grandmother passed away.  I'm so very glad she got to meet him.  She always wanted to approve of whoever I would end up with, and I wanted her approval.  She loved Zach.  Everyone in my family does, and that is so important to me. 

Anyway, last Wednesday (August 1) was our two year anniversary.  August 1 is a very special day to me for a few reasons (some corny haha).  Zach knew that, and that is why he planned to ask me to be his girlfriend that day, along with a dozen roses - 11 pink and one white one, and our favorite Bible verses framed to hang on my wall. 

*August 1 was the day I got baptized (in 2004), and the day my very favorite song was released ("Burning Love" in 1972), to name two important reasons why I like that day.  Now I have even more reason!

Last Wednesday, we decided to go to Jefferson, NC, and eat and spend the day in the mountains.  It was lots of fun! We rode around the mountain in a golf cart, and made friends with the little mountain dog named Britches.  I made Zach a scrapbook for each year that we have dated, and had lots of fun getting the pictures and stickers together. I am really happy with the finished products, and was so excited to give them to him.  I plan to make one every year.  And he gave me an acrylic paint set with an easel and brushes. How sweet! I love it and can't wait to use it. 

It was a special day!

Last year, we went hiking on Pilot Mountain and ate lunch in Mt. Airy (aka Mayberry).  That was also a very special day that I'll always remember :) I didn't have a blog back then, so here are some pictures:

Two years down, and hopefully many more to follow.  I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us in the years to come!
