Has It Only Been 3?

3yrs ago today, Steve and I were married "for time and all eternity".
I can't believe it's only been 3 years, it seems like much longer- in a good way. I don't mean to gush, but boy am I glad I found this guy. He does everything a good husband should, and then he does everything a good wife should! It's a work in progress :)
On a more serious note, at the risk of people thinking that this is easy, it's not. Dating wasn't easy. We had highs and lows, and they didn't stop at the temple. We worked really really hard to get there, I don't think anyone will ever really know what that journey was like for us. But it was all so worth it. Everyday since then has been worth it too. We are still working really hard at this, I hope we always do. I have been learning/growing with, and loving this man for much longer than the 3yrs and 2 kids we have to show for it.
I am thankful everyday that I have Steve to share this all with.
I'm glad we met when we did, where we did. I'm glad that we had years of being acquainted and then friends. I'm grateful for all those little happenings that allowed us the opportunity to make choices that led to each other. Steve's out of town at the moment, and I beat him to the morning text, but this is part of what he said (don't tell him I shared this, he would be so mad)
"Best part about doing this job is I get to wear my ring all the time".
Awwwwwwwwww MELT! One more reason to be happy he's not machining anymore!
The best part of all is knowing that I am his and he is mine, forever.
Love you babe, happy 3rd!

Happy anniversary! It is hard to believe it has only been 3 years (I guess that is what happens when you have 2 babies in a year...lol)
Great post.............Marriage really is a work in progress and probably will be for eternity.
