Our third year of marriage has been the biggest year yet. It’s been HUUUGE (insert Trump impression). 😉
But seriously, this has been the most life-changing year of our lives and our marriage because it turned us from big kids to parents. Yikes! And we built a house, which also feels so grown up. But it’s all good because we’ve taken every step together. When one of us is struggling, the other one is strong… or funny, whichever the situation calls for. We’ve had a few battles but we’ve kept up our sense of humor.
When I was single, people advised me to make a list of all the attributes I was looking for in a husband. I never made the list – mostly because I didn’t know every attribute I wanted in a potential husband – but one of the things I knew I wanted was to feel excited to come home to my husband everyday. I’m happy now that I didn’t make a long list of attributes because I think I would have been so wrong. My husband has qualities that I never knew were so important to me, or that could make me so happy. I got the kind of love that I wanted. I look forward to being together every day, talking about everything under the sun, making each other laugh, going for a walk, playing with our baby or just cuddling on the couch.
I always say that marrying Dan was the best decision I ever made. He’s the best friend and partner I could ever ask for. It’s a simple, some would say ordinary, kind of love that we have. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. This year, we probably won’t celebrate our anniversary in a big way. No trips to San Diego like our 1st anniversary. But I’m totally ok with that. I just want my husband to know that I love him more today than I did three years ago when I said, “I do,” and I’m happy to go through life together laughing and cuddling on the couch. 🙂
Joie de vivre and 3 happy years of marriage,
