The Anniversary!

Today is our third feels like it should be a much higher number than that...we have accomplished so much in three short years...and it's not like we dated all that long before we got married either. We started dating in Sept...engaged the next August...and married that next January. :) Love and happiness ever since. We have been criticized for NOT fighting/disagreeing enough...for spending too much time together and the most ridiculous of all...for knowing each others passwords. :) All laughable to us. All I know is that we love each other more every day. :)
Let's three years of marriage...we had a baby (got pregnant with Moses on our honeymoon), we bought a house, Doug has worked towards a great job, I started a business!, we moved to C'ville, we are close to having our second little boy and we have grown closer to the Lord and to each other every. single. day. :) The above photo was taken at Sunset beach...the week Doug proposed. :)
I have THE BEST husband in the world. :) Honestly, my biggest complaint is that he sometimes leaves the shower head on so that when I bend over to start the water for my shower in the morning I get drenched. :) And he makes a lot of laundry. :) But other than's great! Who can complain about a man who brings you Starbucks in bed, unprompted, who gives you hour long foot rubs for every sports event he watches(and if you know Doug...that is A LOT of sports events), who is such an awesome dad to your son, who works hard (so that you can live your dream of being at home with your kids AND have your own business), treats you like gold, loves you more than you think you deserve and can't wait to get home to you at the end of the workday? I don't think I will be complaining about that...EVER! :)

I love so much about him...

Like his sense of humor...he can take my sass and hand it right back to me (not many people can). :) the time he held his hand under my very pregnant(with Moses) belly and asked me how many fingers he was holding up.

I love that he also reads my blog, and comments...and loves it when I talk about him. :) Say hi!

I love how he attacks(in a playful way!) me when I have gotten him good(with a joke or by scaring the bejesus out of him).

I love him so much more today then when I married him and I am SO excited to see what the future holds for us!!

Happy Anniversary to my Honey!!! You are the best a girl could ask for...and more! :)

Happy Anniversary. Praying for many more "boring" no-fight years ahead :)

Seriously, you don't fight ENOUGH? Who would say that, I assumed that would have most people asking your secret, not criticising you!

Lace said...

Happy Anniversary!

I'm new to your blog, but it has quickly become one of my fave's. I always leave encouraged. husband (of nearly 17 yrs) does the same thing...leaves the shower head on AND pointed toward the curtain...ugh!

Kristi said...

Congrats on such a happy marriage! Happy Day to you both, and trust me, every spouse does little things that annoy the other. If the shower head thing is the worst, then you are pretty lucky chicky! Your story reminds me of this Shania Twain song about a couple who made it despite what others say.

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're the one I want for life
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'

Happy Anniversary to you!! What sweet words about your husband!

Trish said...

happy anniversary. it's funny how i've only known you through the internet, but when I read only 3 years. i said that has to be a typo. you two seem well beyond 3 years. true soul mates!

it is so crazy that when you get married you think you are so in love, but then you keep getting older and falling more in love. i wonder what it will feel like when we are 60? we may make ourselves throw up with all the love oozing out every where :)
