3 Year Anniversary

Dear Husband,

This blog is so often about me and my perspective on everything. But today, I want to focus on you. You never want the focus on you. You always put yourself second. But right now you are the focus. Right now you are first.

Today is our three year anniversary. That seems like such a long time. We were both just babies when we got married, 23 and 20. I suppose we're still babies, but I like growing up with you.

I am so blessed to have you as my husband.

You put up with my everyday crap. You know my favorite candies and where I always want to eat. You know how to make me laugh even when I'm ticked. You put up with the fact that I can't keep our bathroom clean for the life of me. You listen to me rant, but you also let me know when I'm wrong...I really am grateful for that. You support my hopes and dreams, always saying, "If it's important to you, we'll make it work." You've worked your butt off so I can be a stay at home momma to G. You are the spiritual leader who is always pushing me to do more and be more, but you never really push, just quietly lead by example.

You are an excellent Daddy. You've changed more diapers than any man I know and you dutifully take turns waking up in the middle of the night. It wasn't till I heard other women talking that I realized a lot of men don't do those things. I'm blessed, I've never known any different. G loves you and even though he's small, I can still tell that he's already watching your every move. You are going to be his hero. I totally understand because you're mine too. Oh, and by the way...I'm totally okay with him looking like you.
I hope you know how grateful I am for you. I know I don't say it enough and I always say I'll be better about it. Thanks for loving me even if I don't get better, but I promise I'll keep trying.

These three years have been the best of my life. I love you with all of my heart and I look forward to everything we still have to come.

Love you,
