Last week Jonathan and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. We knew we wouldn't be taking any specials trips or doing anything too fancy, but spending the day with Caleb seemed to be just the most perfect way to celebrate our marriage and love over the past three years. What better gift for us than to be holding this tiny manifestation of how much we care and love one another? Nothing, I tell ya.
We DID venture out to dinner alone, and I have to admit, I cried while backing out of the driveway because I just wasn't sure I was ready to leave Caleb even if it WAS for such short time. It was a lot of fun to spend some one on one time with Jonathan, although we joked that we should have rented a hotel room and used that hour and half to get some SLEEP!
I couldn't ask for a better partner in life. Thinking about being without Jonathan, or having a life separate from him is so foreign at this point. Our lives are so entwined, and we are so "one" person together that I honestly couldn't even imagine it. At the end of the day, Jonathan is my best friend. His kindness, humor and fun loving spirit won me over from the start and now three years later those qualities in him are what makes me fall in love over and over. He is compassionate, diligent and wise and just the perfect fit for me. I know that one day I will look back at these pictures, just like I look back now of ones from when we were dating and think how precious a time this is. This time, when we are a family of three (plus bella!) and still have so much life ahead of us.
I am so grateful for my family, and to have a husband I can be proud of! Happy (belated) anniversary Jonathan!
