Absence truly does make the heart grow fonder. Adam was gone for 2 weeks recently, and it felt like a terrible void in my life to have him gone. We did a long time of long distance when we were dating, but being married and being apart feels much worse.
God really provided for us while we were apart and we are thankful for FaceTime to keep us connected during our time spent away from one another.
I had a couple of different people come to stay with me, and that was a huge blessing to have people to keep me company, as well as the fact that we are so glad to have a place that we can offer hospitality to others when they might need it!
During our time apart, I realized the many different roles that Adam and I play in one another’s lives. We are best friends, moral support for one another, we debrief everything together, we eat together, sleep together, play together, and care about each other’s everyday little things. He is my whole world, everything feels intertwined and completely incomplete when we’re not together.
I am incredibly thankful for my husband and for the man that God created Him to be, and that I get to be the lucky girl who gets to be married to him.
Adam was gone to do a prep-school to get his A&P Mechanic’s license (to be fully certified to work on airplanes). He has worked so hard for the past 3 years as an apprentice in this job, and I am so very proud of him for all his diligence and his hard work to get licensed. He has faithfully worked to provide for us, and I couldn’t ask for more.
We have a long ways to go in growing in our marriage, but at the same time, we have so very much to be thankful for in one another, and my heart is pretty full these days.
These are pictures from a recent little adventure we took! We rode our bikes to a cute little tennis court, played a few games, rode our bikes home along the Coastal Trail, got to watch some airplanes land, had an incredible view of the ocean the whole way, and got to see a moose!
We’re so glad for the new adventures we’re having here together in Anchorage, and for the new fun things that city life has to offer us that we haven’t really gotten to experience together. And tennis is nostalgic for us because it’s the first thing we ever did together when we were getting to know each other 3 summers ago!
Love is really sweet, and love that is centered in Christ is the sweetest of all.
