7 Years!

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.

Congratulations Becca and Ethan!
May the Lord continue to walk you through many more years together:)
I like what you said about the gift.
Material things we leave behind, but a love like that is hard to find! Congrats again

I can't believe that was seven years ago. Hard to believe that time goes that quickly. Congratulations!!!

Thanks everyone. Well, I think we are leaning toward getting a sign for our farm. We have an idea of our farm logo in mind, and Ethan has even done a sketch of it. Now we just have to figure out how to get it drawn up graphically on computer. :)

I would be willing to give the graphic design a go if you want to share the sketches... I wouldn't even be offended if you didn't like my designs! Let me know! (I don't think this project could even get rained out!)

Tim-
You are the greatest! You might end up as an honorary share holder in this farm. :)
