Three Years


I'm having a hard time believing DH and I have been married for three years today! I remember the day like it was yesterday...it was hot (not as hot as it's going to be here today, though), but sunny and gorgeous. We both sweat like pigs, but it was okay because we were both really happy. The day was a complete whirlwind of excitement and happiness...I hope I remember it as clearly in 50 years as I do today.

DH and I were thinking back on our third year of marriage and quickly realized what it all centered around--this baby. The first few months of the third year we in the throes of the frustration of TTC, then in late November got the magical news that we would be adding a new family member. After that was the anxiety of the first trimester and then the wonder of beginning to feel this new life growing and moving inside of me. And here we are today, less than six weeks from the expected arrival of this little girl (and me still weighing 6 pounds less at 34 weeks pregnant than I did on our wedding day!).

We went out to dinner last night to an Italian restaurant, Carrabba's. It was delicious and we, as always, enjoyed each other's company, just chatting and hanging out together. We did tell Baby that this is the last anniversary dinner she'll be going to with us for awhile! :) We picked up THE carrot cake that we had for our first anniversary for our dessert and ate it around 9:00 while watching TV. I gave DH his gift (he said he was planning on giving me mine on our actual anniversary rather than the day we were celebrating, so it was left at work) and we sat around until bedtime, just enjoying our time together.

These last three years have been incredible. I can't imagine being married to any other man. We hardly ever fight (and if we do, they're resolved within minutes without any major bloodshed...lol) and make sure to laugh together every single day. This, I believe, is the true secret to our happy marriage. I hope we can continue this for the next 75 years ;) I love you, babe.

Congrats on the anniversary!

Tip for you, if you want to induce your labor, get a pedicure or foot massage... But wait for a few more weeks so she doesn't come too early!

Thanks! For now I don't have any interest in inducing labor since she's still breech, but if she turns...ahem...WHEN she turns...I'll remember that! Thanks!
