yep, march 16, 2010 marks our 3rd wedding anniversary. the 3rd seems odd, not quite newlyweds, but nowhere close to old hat. i guess it is even more odd to think on anniversary number 4 we will have a little tag-along with us. for some reason i chose to reminisce using facebook profile pictures. (is that really what my life has come to? memories from profile pictures?!) I selected a few that i thought were appropriate as we reflect on our first 1,095 (correct, 1,096 days. 2008 was a leap year) days of marriage.
dating. this guy is crazy. he spikes his hair & wears funky sunglasses.
engaged. we never took engagement pictures ( i don't know why, didn't seem priority in our 4 month engagement) but this was at the party were we announced it to my extended family. dad thought a picture like this would be nice.
wedding day. we took our pictures after the ceremony so that we wouldn't see each other before. hectic, but i will never regret it. i always smile at this picture b/c i was sitting down. not to be cute. my back was killing me. i still love my dress.
honeymoon. Jamaica. best choice we made as an engaged couple. a fabulous honeymoon. the only thing i didn't realize was instead of being 21 almost 22 when i got married...apparently i was 17.
1st anniversary. in Mexico. I don't know if you know...or remember this...but after our honeymoon, we were home for 5 days & then left again for Mexico on a missions trip. we don't really remember it either, a total blur. all of this while i was a full time student. the next year, to remind people that we were celebrating our first year of marriage while on a missions trip with 40 high schoolers, we wore matching shirts everyday. i know, annoying.
1st married halloween. karate kid & wonderwoman.
cutting to the chase. most recent. if i went on to much longer, everyone would have deleted me off their blog roll. it has been a fabulous 3 years. shawn is everything i could ask for in a husband + a million things more that i forgot to ask for. i could go on & on about how perfect he is, but i assume that every wife feels the same way about her husband, so i won't go into the details. you already know what i am talking about. so if you need an excuse to celebrate tonight...remember us, and go out to eat, because, hey, it's the kliewers 3rd anniversary! xoxo
