Today is Logan’s birthday and last birthday we’ll celebrate as just the two of us! He hates when I mention “this is the last holiday just us two!” because according to him, we’ve had plenty of holidays just us two over the last 9 years! And I totally agree!
I feel like I truly never knew what unconditional love was until I met Logan. From the beginning of our relationship, it’s always been just us two – through the good and bad.
We have never lived super close to family (my brother lives closer to us now though!) so we never depended on family throughout our relationship. If we needed something, we figured it out together.
So many times, anytime we got in a fight, I’d think it was over. I was so used to everyone always “giving up” or “walking away” throughout my life that I didn’t know what it was like to see him stay. He’d always laugh (after the fight obviously!) and say “No, it’s not over because we got in a fight….”
Throughout the last 2.5-3 years, our infertility journey has certainly tested us and our marriage. Through so many years of trying, our miscarriage, fertility testing, treatments and ultimately IVF, it was so disheartening every month. We didn’t know if this was going to work for us (having a baby) – and if we’d be blessed enough to be parents but he always had the faith.
We got engaged on his birthday in 2014 – at our First Annual Crawfish Boil 🙂
When I’d cry to him and say “will this ever work for us?! will this happen for us?!” He always reassured me that it would, it had to! And if it didn’t, we’d figure it out because we were meant to be parents.
He’s been my rock through SO much and truly is the love of my life! I can’t wait to watch him become a father – he really will be the best!
I always said, the best thing I could do for my children, is give them a good father and I’m so thankful I am able to do so starting in December!
I love you more than words can say, Logan and am so excited for our BEST year yet!
