“You make is easier when life gets hard….I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend; Lucky to have been where I have been; Lucky to be coming home again; I’m lucky we’re in love in every way; Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed…”
-Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, “Lucky”
Hey, good gracious, we made it to THREE years!!!! We have legally stuck together through (quite literally) thick and thin for THREE WHOLE YEARS. I’m pretty proud of us! Since meeting Will in November of 2012, I seriously have found my best friend, partner in crime, soulmate (this is a sappy post, so of course I have to use the sappy words!), traveling mate, confidant, comedian, dance partner, forever date, doggy daddy, and soon to be human daddy!
These three years have been nothing short of exciting, interesting, sad, and even boring at times- and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Compared to some people, Will and I have a long ways to go- but if these three years are any indication of what’s to come- then I think we can handle it!
We’ve had some great times together! (Most of the pictures I pulled for this post have come from Facebook, so excuse the quality of them….between having pictures in a millions places- it was the easiest to save them from Facebook!)
One of our first dates together- when Will took me to eat Sushi for the first time (it’s Will’s fault I like it so much!) and then we saw Mary Poppins at the Orpheum, and Will semi-fell ASLEEP in one of the loudest parts!
Celebrating Christmas with two large dogs… who don’t always cooperate- but that’s about to be our lives forever…sooo- good practice!
Getting those same silly dogs to ride on a four-wheeler with us! (Which they love doing by the way!)
Buying a house together….
and fixing that same house up together (still!) (forever project!)
Working out together! (Running, Pure Barre, Yoga!)
Will teaching me how to shoot a gun….
A TAYLOR SWIFT CONCERT (that Will ended up having a ton of fun at!)
There were even light up bracelets attached to our chairs that turned on and lit up depending on the song! This particular weekend trip/concert also came right after one of the hardest things we have been through in three years of marriage- our first miscarriage. Going through loss together has been hard and sad, but has most certainly helped us build an even stronger foundation.
We have been to Hot Springs… and we took the pictures:
We went to Michigan last summer, with intentions of having our first full-week vacation in between my jobs changing!
With that trip, we unfortunately went through miscarriage number two…. but we seriously made the most of it, and still had a great time with that one exception. Will has been my rock more times than I can count- and again, as horrible and not-fun of a situation that miscarriage is- we once again, got a little bit stronger.
Now, during this fourth year together- we finally get to add “parents” to the list of things we will do together.
Happy Three Year Anniversary to us, and many more to come!!
