My Life Mondays | No. 42 | June 2018 Recap

Four married years! Today, Kyle and I celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary together! I love reflecting back to our wedding day… The 70-something degree day with a little breeze and clouds in the sky. The giggles that Kyle gave me when I read his notecard letter to me on that morning.
