I know its late.. but October 30th was Hubby’s and my three-year wedding anniversary.

Three years.

While it may not seem like a long time to some, it’s still a long time to us.  Not in a bad way, just… in a “none of us have been in a marriage before this” way..

Three years.. he’s still a big deal to me.

After three years, I still look forward to having him home.  I still feel safe when he hugs me.  I still loved.  I still love.

I love the family we have created, and I look forward to what our family will turn into as time goes on.

Raise your invisible glasses for a toast:  Here’s to three years of happiness.. may God continue to bless us with many  more years to come!

Thankful November
November 6 – I’m thankful for coffee.  Yeah, you know it.

With our two year anniversary coming up one month from now, I feel like there are times I don’t give the hubs enough credit.

In the four years that we have been together, we endured a long distance relationship, long-distance wedding planning, moving in together, and then having a baby..

Four years seemed to have flown by so fast because milestones in our relationship seem to just fly on by..

It’s been nothing but constant adjusting.. from living apart.. to living together.. to living with a child.. and there are days that are definitely easier than others.

But isn’t that true in all relationships?

Now I’m not one to gush and giggle over a relationship.. but I feel the need to give credit where credit is due.

Almost two years into the marriage, we still have a lot to learn.. there is still going to be a lot of adjusting.. but there’s really no one else that I’d rather do this with..

I’ve got a lot to learn about patience, and just letting things work out on their own.. but he’s pretty much mastered that art.. and while I dont always want to keep my cool, I know that he’s there to help me do so..

 

One year ago today.. Hubby and I got married.

Two months later.. we moved into our own place.. and not much time after that.. we got pregnant.

Thirty-six weeks later.. we had our first child together..

I’d say that this has been the greatest year so far..

It seems like only yesterday that Hubby and I became engaged and started the 10mo long process of planning a wedding.. It seems like only yesterday that I was walking down the aisle towards him.. crying my eyes out.

Hubby:  You looked so beautiful walking down the aisle.  You know what would have made you look better.. if you weren’t BAWLING!!!!

He has a point.. but I couldn’t help it!

To look back on this first year of marriage, I have to say that it’s been fun.  It’s been one adventure after another and I’m glad I have this blog to document some of those moments.. I can’t imagine experiencing any of these moments with anyone else..

Happy anniversary, hubby!  I pray we have many more of these to come.. I can’t wait for what else future has in store for us.

If someone told me that turning 30 was going to be one of the most life-changing years of my life.. I would never have believed it..

But truth is.. turning 30 was filled with life changing events..

In the span of one year.. the following happened in my life:

1.  I got married
2.  I moved out of my parents house
3.  I became a mother

I can’t believe how fast a life can change in the span of one year..

Last year, I dreaded turning 30.  I felt old.. I felt like I wasn’t ready to be a “30 year old.”  In many ways, I know I’m not ready to admit to be in my 30’s..  I still feel like I’m 20-something..

But I would never give back all the blessings I received when I turned 30.. this past year was definitely a year to remember.. possibly the best year of my life, so far!

So.. I’m ready for my birthday this year.. I’m ready to turn 31.. because I’m excited to see what is in store for me this year!!!

Winding down today.. laptop on desk.. Tchaikovsky blaring from my iTunes (its for the baby..)

We had a busy day of house blessings, UFC fights.. and eating.. eating.. and more eating..

Today is our six month wedding anniversary.. can you believe our wedding was six months ago?  If feels like its been ages since we said our “i do’s”.. but in a good way..

Six months of marriage.. four and a half months pregnant.. I say we are off to a great start..

If God permits, we’ll have our little one here to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary.. awww…

What does one give their spouse on their six month wedding anniversary.. I know the one year is supposed to be something like paper..

My six month wedding anniversary gift is pregnancy.. for our one year anniversary gift.. it’ll be the baby!

I am set for life on this gift thing!  Sweet.. I’ll just say, “I gave you a child..”  That should suffice.. he’s not picky..

Sometimes, you just have to step back from the situation and see the big picture..

The other night.. we were playing with my tummy.. and hubby looks at me and says.. “Can you believe there’s a baby in there?!”

It’s easy to say “yes, there’s a baby in there..”

But can I really wrap my head around it?  I know that I’m pregnant, I know that my belly is growing, I know that I hear the child’s heartbeat, I know I saw the 8wk sonogram picture.. so I know there’s a baby in there..

We’re going to be parents.. and that’s what’s a little overwhelming to believe..

Sometimes, I step back.. and I can’t believe I’m actually married!

Not in a bad way, like “OMG, what did I do?!”

But in a “Wow, look at all he and I have accomplished in the past year..” way.

It’s unbelievable what we have gone through in the past year.. and what this year is bringing us.  I feel blessed beyond words.. it’s so unbelievable what a difference a year can make in a person’s life..

And yes.. I do believe that there’s a baby in there.. thank God for miracles.

Hubby:  What date is it today?
Me: April 26th, why?
Hubby:  Nothing.. just wondering..

After a few minutes, I finally realize what he was trying to tell me this morning..

Today is the 3 year anniversary of our first date. 

I think I got through this every year on this date.. so I won’t elaborate much anymore..

Let’s just say that I’m really blessed that we had that opportunity to meet.. and now to build our future together. 

Marriage.. and starting a family.. I really couldn’t ask for anyone better to do this all with..

So.. I know you read this.. happy 3yrs date-iversary! 

Hey hun, why is the seat wet?!
