4 years

4 years ago today 
that girl on the left and the boy on the right started dating.

this photograph is one i'll treasure forever.
we had only been dating a month or two 
and late one friday night i said i wanted to go to the beach.
so we left the party we were at
packed some bags
and drove 8 hours through the night to florida.
we spent all day saturday on the beach 
and drove back to nashville that night
so bennett could be back in time for band practice.

i can't wait to show this photo to the little girl growing in my belly
and tell her the story of our one day beach adventure
and how i hope that she will one day find a boy
who would drive her to the beach through the night 
just so she could feel some sand between her toes.

i hope she finds a love like ours.
because it's the greatest thing I've ever known.
