730 Days of Marriage

Leo and I are celebrating 730 days of marriage today! 730 days or 2 years - call it want you want to, this is the sequel to the "365 Days of Marriage" post.

We dug out our marriage vows today and reread them. The weather is rainy today, which is not good for farming but, on the bright side, Leo gets to spend some extra time with E and I!

Marriage hasn't been easy, but it is character-shaping and it is a wonderful blessing. Marriage belongs to God - always has, always will.
“God created marriage. No government subcommittee envisioned it. No social organization developed it. Marriage was conceived and born in the mind of God.” Max Lucado
This was us then:

We took a ton of pictures on our wedding day and it was a blast! 

This is us now (+1):

Now we attempt one family photo and it turns out like this :)
“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” MARK 10:6-9
The end of my wedding vow is my prayer for our marriage every year: "Let our marriage be a light to this world and a display of God's love."

Do you have any anniversary traditions?
