Today Ethan and I have been married 7 years, and a great 7 years it has been!
Ethan's favorite number, or at least the one he picks if he is asked to pick a number, is always 7. I find it appropriate that this is the year that we are moving out to the country and starting a farm. Our dream since we first got married (and even before, when we knew we were going to get married) was to have a house in the country that included a nice piece of land. To be able to farm it is the icing on the cake.
This year we decided that instead of exchanging anniversary gifts, we were going to pick out something together for our new land/farm. Maybe a cool mailbox, a sign for the farm, a nice tree . . . we haven't decided yet. I'll try to remember to post what we end up picking out.
If you don't mind me being too sappy though, the best gift Ethan has given me is his love through Christ, his perseverance in his work, and the opportunity to move our family out into the country.
