Happy 30th Birthday, Russell!

Russell is officially 30. I have been joking with him all week counting down the days til he was 30. He said he sure enjoyed his 20's. :)
Look at this little cutie from 30 years ago!

Oh my word! Look at that smile. I am a little partial.

When I met Russell, he stole my heart very quickly. We loved going to SAU together in Magnolia. I love this picture. It was at an SAU football game. I was in the SAU Heritage Singers and sang with the choir before the game. I then met Russell at the game. Young love...he was 21 then and I was 20.

Russell is an awesome uncle to Logan and Lauren. I loved seeing him play with them when they were little. It always warmed my heart.

He graduated from SAU in 2007. Here is Russell with Mamaw Price, Papaw Price, and his cousin and my best friend, Amy.

We still share this same love. We were engaged then and oh so excited.

At our Rehearsal Dinner with Kelly, Daddy, and Mama. I love, love, LOVE this picture very much.

Fast forward to a more recent time...we had such a wonderful Valentine dinner at Crystal Bridges last February. So special.

Woo Pig Sooie! Our first Razorback game together. I was six weeks pregnant, and we were so happy...and burning up outside. HA!

This past December was incredibly eventful as we found out we are expecting a BABY BOY! I'll never forget our excitement. Cannot wait til May!

Russell, I cannot believe you are 30. You and I are such kids at heart and I consider that a blessing. We always have fun together and make memories. You have shown so much love, patience, kindness, and dedication for our family and I adore you for that. I cannot wait til we have our darling baby boy, Jackson. I love you so very much, sweet man. Love, Meredith

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

I know the bible says to find a good wife is a blessing but I agree to find a good husband is also ! ! !
