Three years ago my life changed forever.
Well, actually 4 years and 1 day ago because September 10th was the day Chris asked me to be his wife and that question plus my answer set the wheels in motion for what was to become the absolute best and most amazing next 1,461 days.
It’s even hard now to put into words how incredible my life is. How perfect. How I wouldn’t change one single thing about it. Marrying Chris was absolutely the best decision I have ever made.
I think when you say your vows you know that you’re committing to a lifetime together but then again I don’t think you can quite fully grasp what that means in that moment. And sure, we’re only at 3 and I can only imagine how much love I’ll be feeling when we get to 50 but something about this year, this 3rd year, has really made us closer and was the year that we really got it figured out. I don’t know, it’s just that everything is so good right now.
And that’s not to say it’s been easy. This has also been probably our toughest year. We’ve dealt with job stuff, family stuff and baby stuff. There have been tears and pain and fights, but you know what? I’m glad we’ve had to deal with all of that stuff because it’s done nothing but make us stronger and bring us closer together.
I am so lucky to have this man in my life. He is my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life and the father to our baby. Who knows where the rest of life is going to take us but I know that as long as he and I do it together there will be nothing we can’t handle.
So Chris, on our 3rd anniversary I want to thank you for everything.
Thank you for making me this happy.
Thank you for giving me a life better than I could have ever dreamed of.
Thank you for loving me.
