3 Years

Today, Jimmy and I have been married for 3 years. I can't believe it. In a way it feels like much longer than that, but at the same time it feels like there is no way 3 years could have gone by that quickly.

I think of all we have gone through and all the things we have faced and feel as if we are war veterans as well as spouses.

At our tithing settlement a couple of weeks ago the Bishop asked if our marriage has been 3 years of pure bliss. We both looked at each other and started laughing. Pure bliss? Not quite. But is any relationship really? We've had ups and downs, but I think that is normal. You need the hard times to appreciate the good times. And when 2 people are attempting to grow together, it's only natural to hit some bumps along the way.

So here we stand, 3 years later and we are still standing together.

I love that Jimmy gives me some perspective when I freak out over stupid stuff.
I love that he tries to cook for me to the best of his abilities.
I love that he will let me chat his ear off about my day at work, even if he couldn't care less.
I love that when he does the laundry, he folds and puts all my clothes away.
I love that he calls me, even when he doesn't really have something to say.
I love that he is willing to work at "us" because he thinks it is worth while.
Most of all, I love that he is mine forever.

Happy Anniversary chop, I love you!
