Three Years

What?

How did that happen?

Corey and I have been married for three years as of today. We’ve been together for 8.

We’ve been so focused on Monster’s impending arrival (and Christmas, and a million other things) lately that we haven’t taken the time to truly appreciate the fact that we’re having an anniversary. We’ve never done much for our anniversaries (see year one and year two), and this year will probably be even less – we have a giant hospital bill looming over our heads and a tiny human joining our house soon, so celebrations will be very small.

We decided to skip the gifts this year in favor of going out on one last pre-baby date. On Saturday we went out to dinner, just the two of us, which we haven’t done in a shockingly long time. It was fabulous and I’m hoping it won’t be too long until we’re able to do it again. We have an annual tradition of writing one another anniversary letters (we write the letters the year before and wait to exchange them – so we’ll open the letters we wrote last year and write new letters for next year), and I’m greatly looking forward to doing that tonight!

Of course, our anniversary always falls right around the return to school. Today is our first day back with students (we both had work days yesterday, but the kids were still off), so we’ll be exhausted tonight. But we’ll make something fun for dinner and we’ll enjoy a nice, calm night at home. I may even indulge in a (small) glass of wine!

The last three years married to Corey have been an absolute dream. He is the most wonderful husband I ever could have asked for, and I’m so incredibly lucky to have him. I’ve fallen even more in love with him as we’ve prepared for our new baby over the last nine months – he is going to be an amazing dad and I can’t wait to see him in action. He has taken such great care of me as I’ve dealt with all the woes of pregnancy, and he never fails to make me feel special and loved. He’s so amazing and I can’t believe I get to spend my life with him.

I love you, love! Happy 3 years!

    You were a beautiful bride, and are such a lovely mama! And what a sweet anniversary tradition. Is it wrong of me to hope Monster is fully baked and can come today, on my birthday? ;) Just kidding! Grow baby grow, we’re ready to meet you whenever you’re ready to come <3
