Three years ago today I woke up at the crack of dawn with butterflies in my stomach. While everyone was still sleeping I hopped in the car, cranked up the radio, and drove to HyVee (exciting huh?). I was just going to pick up some sandwiches but I was there too early, the deli sandwiches weren’t ready yet. So I grabbed a magazine and sat down on some patio furniture in the store and read mindless celebrity gossip in People. When I went to check out the clerk asked “how are you this morning?” and I replied with a huge smile “I’M GETTING MARRIED TODAY!!”
June 24, 2006 was a truly great day but I feel like it pales in comparison to so many others days since then. As well as Tyler and I knew each other after three years of dating/engagement, three years of marriage has brought us so much closer. We’ve travelled together, moved to and from D.C. together, raised a baby pug together, bought a house together (and lived to tell about it), and our lives have become completely intertwined. We are a unit, a team, our own little family now. Maybe someday we will even add some not furry kids to our family, but for now things feel just right.
Here’s a look back at the last 3 years of marriage, and a few years before that too 🙂
