Life was good pre-PJ but in the last one year of being married to him, it has become wayyyyyy BETTER than I could have ever imagined!!?? Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (MSG) is my experience:

It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there’s no one to help, tough!

PJ, you were worth the wait! Thank you for being the BEST guy! I love you with all my heart??????❤️ , In fact, I love you more than I love dodo and puff puff combined(Can’t you see it in the way I look at you?)??

Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary to us!???????????????? Here’s to FOREVER ?

ABBA Father, we owe this to you. There’s no US without your GRACE! Thank you for giving us plenty of reasons to celebrate! It has been an incredible year and #TheJUnit can’t thank you enough.??????
