what I was looking for...

I always thought I would marry a dark haired older man, who was somewhat allusive yet had life figured out, was finishing their
PH D and would afford me all of life's luxuries. God did even better when He gave me Ryan, who yes is 5 months and 3 days older, wears his heart on his sleeve and is figuring out life with me. I never guessed I would marry someone from my own small high school & return to West Michigan. But here we are, 3 years later living in my grandparent's first home, a little family with our pup Toby and I couldn't be happier.

We went to a wedding last night and sappy as it is, I am always reminded of how lucky I am to have married my best friend. The thing I love most about Ryan is his spirit of adventure and challenge towards life. I am now starting to believe the old wisdom that you look for someone like your Dad. Ryan is an entrepreneur to the core which is something I have always loved about my own Dad. He thrives on talking about ideas and concepts which always keeps life exciting.

Tonight I spent a couple of hours at his office with him, where I am typing this now. This isn't a typical Sunday night for me but I am realizing more and more as I am home how hard he works for us and for his business' success. Little did we know that Ry quitting his job 2 weeks after our honeymoon would lead to this place for him career wise. It is really exciting to watch the company ebb and flow and grow stronger each year. I will share a few pics of the new and improved Stability One like a proud soccer mom wearing her kid's picture button. (if they had pins, you better believe I would don one).
