"if you treat a man as he is , he will stay as he is. but if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become the bigger and better man." goethe

happy anniversary to us! 
we married on a rainy june day.
no fancy photographer, celebrated with dear friends and left for a simple honeymoon.
it's a joy to be growing alongside patrick. he's a steady, faithful and encouraging friend.
his laugh is my fave, and he can grow a beard overnight. 
he takes me shoe shopping and holds me when i weep. he's the greatest papa and a wonderful husband.
grateful the lord joined our hearts and look forward to seventy more years!


  1. happy anniversary sweet lady! cheers to you two!
