It's Our Anniversary!!!

Three years later, we're still celebrating. I don't have any idea what Angel's plans for today are, but I do know he's been planning. In addition to mystery plans, Angel also wrote this blog post in honor of our 3rd wedding anniversary.
......................................................................


This last year has been the easiest, funniest, and most loving year compared to the first two. I understand Rachel much better and anticipate her needs, which is why this is much easier now. Ever since the bear costume, bats, discovering Rachel's similarities with baby Sarah, and adventures with our siblings, things have been more fun and adventurous. Rachel continues to be the one I love and I’m sure many husbands feel the same way about their spouses and for those who do thank you for being men and committing. Rachel is all I think of on my drive home from a long 12 hour shift at work. I see her smile as I walk in the door and she says, “BABY!” every time I come home.

If Rachel has been gone for more than 5 hours I get a little dry on my Rachel tank and need to write her notes, or cook her a meal, or do something special because I think of her. Rachel is happy, Rachel is my first white wife, Rachel fits all the criteria of what biblical love is along with “crazy.” Rachel is intense, passionate, and has no fear where I have all the caution in the world. Rachel can’t be described, even her way of dressing can’t be described. Rachel is truly an acquired taste. 

I remember the first time I drank root beer soda, which was at a Carman concert and I was thirsty and my friend bought me root beer and I was like, "What is this?!" But after I drank it, I loved it. I remember having blue cheese, ranch, and honey for the first time and not liking them at all...but now, I love them. Before I thought these things were weird, like Rachel, but then I found that they were good, but I never would have discovered that if I hadn't gotten outside my comfort zone. Living with Rachel has definitely stretched my comfort zone. Now I put ranch on my fries, blue cheese on my pizza, honey in my green tea, root beer with my meals, and Rachel in my life. 

 Rachel is my next of kin, wife, spouse, partner, not just my girlfriend or fiancĂ©e. She is my real deal! I take pride in marriage, in the wedding band I have with her, and in our commitment. I’m glad to be equally yoked with her. I’ve heard of special wives that are 1 in 10,000’s and I know Rachel is one of them. Happy Anniversary Rachel!

As far as I understand it I'm the only wife of any ethnicity he's ever had. But he considers "first white wife" a term of endearment.

This is so cute. After living abroad I completely understand "first white wife" as a term of endearment. So fun to read and what a testimony of your love and faith together. Well said!
