Today Josh and I celebrate three years of marriage! After two engagements, I finally married my very best friend, and couldn't thank God enough for him! Three years of wedded bliss has been made up of: lots of laughing, stupid jokes, some tears, a whole lot of Thai food, living room sleepovers, many crappy b movies, lots of travel, forgiving and forgetting, learning to tame a judgmental tongue (ahem, Annie), loving each other in every way, accepting that not all problems are solved in one day but never going to bed without an "I love you," calming down a little bit (Josh), not being so uptight (me), having the best little baby, and growing in our faith and Christ together.
I can't believe that I get to have Josh as my husband! He has an incredible heart- so kind and willing to help anyone without missing a beat. He's made my family his own, and I his. We share everything, the good and the bad. Josh has the wonderful ability to never forget the "little" things that make me smile: bringing me water when I'm already in bed, buying me a cheesy corn biscuit if he's at my favorite coffee shop, changing Jacob's diaper in the morning so I can get a few more minutes of sleep, calling me in the middle of the day just to tell me something funny he drove by... It's so easy to overlook the small gestures and compare them to someone else's grand ones, but I would never trade the small daily acts of love for anything!
(ex: as I type this, Josh is in the next room watching "Cool Runnings" and singing the Jamaican Bobsled Team song. He makes me smile even when we're not in the same room. I love that he always has fun and doesn't take himself too seriously. I hope he always keeps his childlike spirit and that it rubs off on me a little more!)
I'm looking forward to spending my day with my love, a little more mellow than last year's dogsled and ski lift trip with a tiny Jacob in my belly!
