Three years down, a million more to go ...

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary. Boy, does time sure fly when you are having fun. This post may be a little bit saucy, but every day I am so thankful for the life that God has given and the partner I get to share this life with.

I met the hubs at a very low point it my life and to say that he was an angel sent from heaven is an understatement. And, by the way, if you don't know me ... I am not an overly religious person who is on the God squad. I have my faith and my religion and my belief in God, but it isn't something that I overtly share or post about on Facebook.

Our paths should have crossed several times months before we actually met since we did have some mutual friends and were invited to some of the same parties. The world wasn't yet ready for two aquariuses (aquarii?) .... two people with the same astrological sign, LOL! Not only do we both have the same sign, our birthday are a day apart.

We met over five years ago and I still get butterflies when I see him, I still miss him when we are apart, I still can't wait to get home and see him, we still laugh and tell jokes every night before bed. Now, we have another one of us to share these days with.

Not only was I blessed with an amazing husband, but amazing friends and family to share this day with. It was truly the best few days (lots of gatherings pre and post wedding!). I count my blessings everyday and wonder what on earth I did to deserve this!

I can't believe it's been three years, three of the best years of our lives. We've been to Fiji, Seattle, New York, Philly, Weatherly, Hazleton, Phoenix, Napa, San Fran, LA ... where else?? Our adventures aren't anywhere near being over or near halting. And now, we get to take our little one with us on this amazing journey called love, life and marriage.

One of our biggest accomplishments is being able to respectfully disagree and check each other's attitude and ego at the door. Look, we all have a bit of that within ourselves and we've learned how to handle ourselves and each other. It's been a challenge, but we now can peacefully disagree or think the other person is being ridiculous and it passes!

I know it's sappy, but I truly found my partner, my best friend and can't believe we are lucky enough to spend the rest of our lives together.

Cheers to a million more years together.
