We spent our example of a compare and contrast essay tucked away in the woods. It was the most relaxing get away we’ve ever had and definitely our favorite anniversary trip thus far. We booked this gorgeous cabin for a two night stay in Broken Bow.It was absolutely gorgeous and cozy. They literally thought of everything from cooking utensils, board games, extra blankets, soap, laundry detergent, etc. I loved that they decorate the cabins for Christmas too. They had a journal in the living room area where guests would sign and talk about their stay. So neat to see where everyone came from. We grabbed groceries on our way down and brought steaks to grill for our Anniversary dinner. For lunch, we went to The Grateful Head Pizza and it was amazing and such a unique atmosphere. We toured Hochatown and I really wanted to bring this guy back with us for a front porch greeter. We spent most of our time watching movies by the fire, in the hot tub when it was 15 degrees outside, and just enjoying each others company. Zack made us a fire on our first night so we could have smores.I can’t wait to go back. It was nice to get a way from everything and just get back to us. We talked about how much life we’ve gone through over the last 5 years and where we wanted to be or try to accomplish over the next 5-10-and 20. I’m so thankful for my husband and best friend. He makes this life so sweet and blesses me more than I can say. Thank you for this trip, babe. You love me so well and I’m constantly amazed at how God has written this love story. Love you to Heaven.
5 years have come and gone. This day we promised each other forever. We’ve gone through so much in the last 5 years. Sickness, health, death, good times, hard times, moving, babies, new jobs, and what a journey it’s been. You’re my safe place to land, my best friend, and I’m forever grateful God gave you to me.
I truly love you with all that I have and am thankful that you are my husband. I can’t wait to see where life takes us in the next 5, 10, 25 and 50+ years. I cherish everyday and love this life we’ve built from the ground up.
Happy Anniversary, babe!
I’m sure you know the quote “Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a daddy.” I’ve more than likely bought this card for my Dad ten times or more but oh, it is so true.
God knew the desires of my heart when he chose Zack for me. One, he’s an incredible husband, but the other most important, being a daddy to our kids. I couldn’t have hand picked a better man to team up with in raising our girls.
I joke around saying that I need a boy so I can have one kid that loves their mama a little more than Zack. But, I know how strong a daddy/daughter bond is because I have the same with mine. And it is so special to watch it unfold in your own children. They absolutely adore him. He’s their boo boo kisser, protector, best friend, dance partner, fix it all, tear wiper, and more.He’s the sweetest man with our girls. He helps me with the hard stuff, he apologizes when we are wrong (gasp! we are human!), leads our family, and is absolutely precious. I love watching him “dad” and it’s the best. Our girls couldn’t be more blessed.
I’m so proud of how he chooses to parent. How he chooses to love. How he chooses to give grace. And how he chooses them every time. I love hearing about their dates they go on, dance parties, hearing about all the fun they’ve had outside and seeing the messes made when I come home. I know without a doubt they will never have to question his love for them. And that is being a real dad.
It makes my heart swell knowing that we have a Heavenly Father that loves us the same and so much more. Can you even fathom how God loves us more than we love our own kids? I can’t. And I am so thankful for that unending love. We love you so, Zack. I am so thankful to have you as a team mate in these parenting years. It’s crazy, chaotic, hilarious, stressful, and absolutely breath taking. We hope you know that you are cherished and love each and every day. Happy Father’s Day.
