Walking around with a secret.

Today Cliff and I have been married for 3 years.  Most days I feel like I am walking around with a really great secret.  Our love fills me up and makes me feel like I can do anything.  Even bigger right now as our financial life is so uncertain our love makes me feel safe and protected and that no matter what it will be okay because we will be together. 

Three years makes me feel giddy.  Since our wedding day we've been on a direct course to create a life together that's big on happy.  

We've learned: 

The tiny details like wall color actually do make a difference. 
Chasing dreams though tough is always worth it.
Wonton soup makes us both very happy. 
A home can never have too many comfy blankets (the cats agree).
Healthy is not a word or state of being to be taken for granted. 
Newcastle is still our favorite beer.
 California is home.  For sure.
And our very favorite days are spent together.

Cliff, I love you.  I love you.  I love you.  
I love going to bed and waking up with you.  I love the daily unwind.  
I love our road trips and memories in pictures.  
I love your cooking.  The way you take care of us and the babies.  
I love that we truly share our lives together. 
I could not ask for a better partner. 

Thank you for being mine. 
I still DO.

I love you my wife. Thanks for that beautiful expose on our magical life together. Three years! Seems like yesterday. Our family and friends make it that much richer. Oh, and by the way, we will be. I am looking forward to 20 more three-year anniversaries!

Isn't it great how it feels like no time has gone by, but at the same time, you can hardly remember what it felt like to not be in love with each other? Happy Anniversary to the both of you, and I hope every year feels just like your wedding day!
