Three Years of Marriage

Okay, I know this is going to be a sappy blog already because just typing the subject "three years of marriage" has made my eyes well up with tears.

Today, I celebrate three years of marriage with my best friend. My husband is truly the biggest blessing in my life. He supports me in everything that I do. He loves me, unconditionally. He seems to see things in me that I cannot. In these three years, he has been with me through sickness and in health. He held me as I cried while being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. He never lets me give up on myself. Already, he has been with me through better or worse, for richer or poorer. We have been through a lot in these first three years of marriage; and I truly look forward to being with him for all of the days of my life.

My husband is also my high school sweetheart. When I was 12 years old, I knew that he was the one that I wanted to marry. He, however, wasn't ready for me quite yet. When I was 15 years old, he asked me to be his girlfriend. We have been together ever since. Distance couldn't even keep us apart. While he went to school 300+ miles away (and we were eating ramen noodles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), we still found a way to be together; if only for a weekend or two a month. We are 24 years old now. We have been homeowners for 2 1/2 years in our hometown and live there with our three furbabies; Max, Bella and Topher. We both have great jobs, family and friends.

When I was a little girl, I had a plan. By the time that I was 24 years old, I wanted to be married. Now, I am here. I have been married for three years and even though life isn't perfect, when I stop... really stop to take a look around, I cannot imagine how I could be any more blessed. My husband has made so many of my dreams come true. And yet, I have more dreams. I can rest assured, however, in knowing that he will be there with me every step of the way.
To celebrate three years of marriage, we have booked a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas in November. We will be going with another couple, two of our best friends. We are very much looking forward to going back to some of the same islands we visited on our honeymoon; Half Moon Cay, Nassau and a new island to us, Freeport. With the cruise less than two months away, I have a new goal to reach for. We both want to lose as much weight as we can before we set sail. I want to reach 225 lbs by November 4th. I haven't been able to break through the 230's in many years, and I am hoping to do so, soon!
