I said I love you, and that's forever...

Today is our third wedding anniversary, and this month also marks 11 years together. Like every year, the past year was full of ups and downs, good and bad.

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of 
love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity.  
The order varies for any given year.  
~Paul Sweeney

A look back at our third year of marriage:
I'll take another year filled with the laughter, traditions, vacations and celebrations; minus the broken bones, surgeries, and ensuing hardships, even though those things taught me that my marriage is strong and can survive really stressful shit for months at a time.

Happy anniversary MFD! Looking forward to eleventy billion more. I'm grateful to have a partner who is eye to eye with me on the important things, but who is my opposite in many ways and shows me things I would never have in my life without him.

Also today? Amanda's birthday. I am so happy our friend married someone who has become one of my greatest friends. Have a fabulous birthday Amanda!

I'm participating in a giveaway over on Southern Beauty Guide. Go win yourself a prize for my anniversary. Go on now.

  8. Happy Anniversary! One of the best days of my 57 years! Favorite spot-by the ocean- perfect weather - perfect sunset. Such a fun time AND I was pretty much sober. I was on a love high! And the sand- bare feet! NO sore tootsies from dancing, etc.
    Just a wonderful, wonderful day. All good stuff!
    And this blog captures what is important in a marriage.
    love you and Mike Doyle to infinity and beyond and Gussie, Geege, and Maisel, too.

    Love your MOMMA
