3 Years

I really feel like it was just a few weeks ago I was writing about celebrating our second wedding anniversary. And now here we are, celebrating 3 years of marriage today! May 28th, you are so special to me.
I'm not sure I can pinpoint when you stop being "newlyweds" or how long you're officially allowed to hold onto that title. Many days I still feel like a giggly, young newlywed, experiencing married life for the first time, and other days I feel like we've been married a decade or more because I just feel that closeness with Jared. I still walk in the front door every day, excited to be greeted with a hug and a kiss no matter what that day was like. And I also know whatever life throws us, we can handle together.
Of course we still face trials and struggles, as any normal couple does. But the way we struggle and deal with struggles is so different than the way we used to. We continue to grow and nurture our marriage each year and just when I think I couldn't possibly love Jared more? My heart expands just a little bit more for him. It's exciting to think of all the great things still to come in our relationship and life together.
It's been a year of ups and downs and new life experiences, -that's for sure- and I'm so thankful I've had Jared by my side through it all. The man is there for me in every high and every low and for that I know I am one lucky lady. I'm so looking forward to celebrating another year together and exchanging gifts tonight, too.

Cheers to another 80 anniversaries, Jared! I love you!

  25. Happy Anniversary!! I certainly plan on claiming newlywed status long past when it becomes believeable... :P We're the only married couple in my generation on my side of the family, which means that all the old folks refer to us as the "newlyweds", so that helps. ;P
