4 Years and Counting....

Today is mine and Mark's 4th anniversary. It is so hard to believe that we've been married for 4 years, but it is so neat to go back and look through our marriage. There have been ups and downs, but I can say with 110% of my heart that I married my best friend and my soulmate. God has blessed me with the funniest, kindest, most unique man. I am so proud to call him my husband.

I thought I'd commemorate the last 4 years with pictures from each of our anniversaries!

This one was actually from our honeymoon in the Maya Riviera. We had such a great time together and we were just embarking on our new life together. We're such babies in this picture!

We spent our 1st anniversary in Gatlinburg in a great cabin for 2 nights. I remember how exciting it was to reach the 1 year mark!

We spent our 2nd anniversary in Cincinnati. We went to the Melting Pot (this was before it was in Lexington). We had a great time together!

For our 3rd anniversary, I suggested staying in Cincinnati again and getting tickets to the Bengals game (Mark was happy to oblige). We stayed on the river and went to the Hofbrauhaus on Saturday then the game on Sunday. This was one of my favorites to date!

This is obviously not from our 4th anniversary, but I thought I'd include it since it's a picture of our family to date. This year, Mark and I will be going to Cincinnati again (do you see a recurring theme???). We plan on spending the weekend away from work and school to just enjoy each other's company. We're planning on hitting up some museums (we realize that we are geeks...), staying the night at the Hyatt Place (an anniversary gift from my parents), and going to church at our favorite church which just so happens to also be called Crossroads. My brother goes to this church and Mark and I try to go at least once a month. We're going out to eat together tonight before watching the Bengals-Steelers game. I think the best anniversary present would be to see the Bengals win...I'm not holding my breath.

Who knows what will happen in this upcoming year. I'm excited already to start our 5th year!

Maria & Mark,
CONGRATULATIONS on your 4th Anniversary, with God's Blessings for many, many more.

...And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
