You have stolen my heart. . .

Well, four years ago today I woke up with puffy eyes. Can you imagine waking up on your wedding day with puffy eyes? I did- so much drama happened the night before, I balled my eyes out on my mom around 12:30pm Friday night. But today, Saturday, May 22nd, was a beautiful sunny gorgeous day and everything turned out really wonderful. Today, four years ago, I married Jon. And let me tell you, I could not be a more blessed woman.

Jon, I love your gentleness, your soft heart and kind spirit. I love how you know me more than I know myself. I love your servanthood. I love how you strive to lead us towards Christ. I love that you give homeless men socks, and encourage friends who have recent troubles. I love how you will wake up to get me a drink in the middle of the night and take care of me. I love how you love me. Thank you for marrying me.

Yesterday, I had to stop by work for a few minutes and had heard there was something waiting for me. This is what I found at my desk:

Jon wanted to surprise me by sending flowers the day before our anniversary. It definitely suprised me!! Then today, I'm on the phone with a customer, when our receptionist drops another flower box by my desk.

A second bouquet- this time calla lilies and red roses!! My jaw DROPPED. When I called Jon- he said the first bouquet was to tell me he loved me, the second for our anniversary. Holy cow- this sista is still in shock, I'm telling you. Oh, my co-worker wanted to get my photo, so here's me beaming from head to toe with my bouquets:

Oh, there was also Godiva chocolate inside as well! Man knows a way to this woman's heart.
