THREE years of marriage


3 years ago today hubby and I got married in what has to have been one of the most backwards weddings ever. Everything went wrong and I was crying before the dinner reception even started because the florist failed to deliver the centerpieces and gorgeous floral topiaries from the ceremony to the hotel. We can look back on the wedding and laugh (while still grimacing a little) and even have fun shocking friends with each painful story from that day, but I still don't count our wedding day as the happiest day of my life. Don't feel sorry for me because every day since then has been the happiest day of my life. Our life has been far from what we expected and this last year has been especially challenging, but I wouldn't be able to survive it with anyone else. Hubby never fails to make me laugh and smile, encourage me in my creative endeavors, and take care of me beyond my greatest expectations. This last year as I have been sick, he has been the cook, the maid, the launderer, the grocery shopper, the breadwinner, and has somehow managed to shower me with love and laughs and time together on top of it all. He is truly my other half and I wouldn't trade 3 years of twists and turns with him for 3 years of perfection with anyone else.

I love you, hubs! Happy anniversary!

So glad I can share life with you. I must admit, I am a little overwhelmed at how much love you just expressed for me on the Shmookedness. I feel like I should start (another) blog just for the sake of making an anniversary post in response! We both know I don't have time for that, or the Shmooked bloggy skills like you have. Thanks for being even more wonderful in person as you are in your writing. It's love. It's perfect. Here goes year four!

Happy Anniversary!
You're not the only one who looks back at your wedding day with a cringe, so know that you're in good company!
Maybe it's God's plan to keep us mindful that marriage is not about a wedding, but about "in sickness and in health" and "for better or worse" and all that.

Hooray! Happy anniversary! Each year gets better. At least in my experience.
