75 Ways

Today marks 75 Months of being in a committed relationship with my best friend, lover, and husband--Peter Webb.

75 Months ago today, Peter and I sat on a picnic bench in his back yard and I told him, that after 6 years of knowing him, and 2 years of having feelings for him, I was finally ready to be his girl. It was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made.

75 months later, Peter has changed my life completely. Through his love, leadership, and wisdom, he has opened the door for Christ to transform me, and I'm so grateful.

I've learned, through Peter's life, so many things. Here are 75 of the ways you've challenge me, stretched me, taught me that life is wonderful. Thank you.
