Three years ago tomorrow, on a perfect October afternoon, the kind that makes you long for this time of year, I walked down a grassy aisle, in a white dress, and married my best friend. I'm not really sure that I've ever fallen for the whole "love at first sight" spill, or any mushy, gushy stuff for that matter, but there's something about my Matt that has made my life so complete, even when we were "just friends." He is a part of me...all of the parts that were missing, God has made whole through Matt. I guess that's how it should be when you choose to love someone. It should be someone who, pardon the overused movie line, but someone "who completes" you....and for me, that has always been Matt. For our anniversary, I'm staying with my parents and Matt is lying awake (at 4 a.m.) in his hotel room in an Italian vineyard...perfect, huh? I won't bore you all with our love story, I just wanted to send Matt my love from across the miles. Love you babe and thank you for choosing to spend the last 3 years, and your life, with me. You have always been my soulmate.
After nearly 5 blissful years of marriage, 2 boys, and entering into a new stage of my life...my 30s...I have come to the realization that I've got so much more to learn about being a wife, a mother, and a woman after God's own heart. Just as I feel the sometimes daily struggles of raising up boys, God has shown me that He's not finished "raising me" to be the woman He created me to be. I hope to capture the ins and outs of our silly, imperfect, passionate, and growing family as we, and our Creator, are "raising up the Rollins'."
