Happy National Penny Day!

Today is mine and Taylor's 18 month anniversary!
You know what that means: PACKAGE TIME

This week I will be posting a Craft of the Week video on the package I am sending him.
But back to the purpose of this post!

Taylor and I believe in celebrating every day, so we do:

Today is Nation Penny Day, which is super cool because my promise ring is made out of a penny:

The Ring

I'm not a diamond kind of girl. I love simplicity and that's why this ring is so perfect. About two years ago Taylor took me to a railroad track and we laid two pennies on the track. He told me to make a wish as the train went by; he was my wish. Little did I know, a year and a half later he would give me that same penny as a promise ring. He is just perfect.

So to thank my best friend for being the man of my dreams and my rock for the past year and a half, I created an anniversary video:

 We aren't your typical couple.

I love you T!

Being separated has never been easy...

How we have made it work:

We rely on the Lord
We are always honest with each other
We keep an eternal perspective
We stay obedient
We express our love for each other every opportunity we get

Time will always go by, its guaranteed that these two years WILL pass.
However, it is not guaranteed that these two years will be a special experience for you and your missionary.
That ladies is OUR job. To find these special moments where you and your elder can grow together.
This doesn't have to be as depressing as it seems.
There is a light at the end of every tunnel.
Don't wait two years to find that light.

Thanks for always listening ladies!

Another post will be up soon :)

Have a wonderful week and remember:
