Crazy to think this was just one year ago!
A shot Curtis Wiklund took of Philip and I over winter break 2013
When I was younger I made a super detailed list of all the qualities I wanted in my future husband. I wrote him letters and told him about my middle school days. I prayed about it a lot. I had almost forgotten about it when I finally met Philip. He had every single quality on my list, and even ones I thought were too unrealistic to put on.
I knew after the first day we talked in Sweetwaters, eating donuts till 4 in the morning that I would marry him. (If I was lucky:) I look up to Philip more than anyone I’ve ever met. Some people ask us why we don’t want to explore the world more before settling down, but I can’t imagine anything better than exploring the world with my best friend. We can’t believe we were blessed enough to have found each other so early in life!! God is so good!
