saying i do... 7 years later

nate and i celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary,
 in a very special way.

on july 17, 2011, we renewed our wedding vows. 

it was a very simple, small, and intimate ceremony,

shared with close friends and family.

the lord has blessed nate and i beyond measure. 

though we are far from perfect,
and of course our marriage is far from perfect,

i'd say this day was as close to perfect as it could have been. 

the boys walked me down the aisle.

 it was honestly one of the sweetest moments of my life.

 laura story's song "blessings" was playing as i walked
toward the front of the church, where nate was waiting on me.

it was not your traditional service,
but it was exactly how we wanted it to be.

our friend, mentor, and incredible man of god, joe mayeux,
performed the ceremony. 

nate and i wrote our own vows, and didn't share them,
 until that day, in front of everyone. 

 of course it was emotional. but so sweet. we then took communion.

 nate prayed for me after this. again, incredibly sweet. i cried.

we hugged, cried, and prayed some more.

simply beautiful. how god can make beauty from ashes.

i'm so happy to introduce...
the renewed and recommitted,
 mr. and mrs. nate whitt!
