Four. Four years have passed since Jason and I said, “I do!” I cannot believe it, you guys. Year three going into year four seems to have been our busiest year, yet. Which for me, also means we had some of our biggest challenges as a couple.
I will say this over, and over again: There is no one else I would rather go through this life with, than my husband. Our life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. It’s compromise (thanks, Maroon 5). Even after four years, we have so much to learn about each other, and from each other…
But we also continue to grow together. I can’t begin to express how incredibly important that is in a marriage. Grow together. Change together, and if you do change separately, always have an open mind, to accept one another.
Last year, to celebrate our third wedding anniversary, we house hunted. I was not pleased with my husband, as I didn’t want to look at homes. I wanted one last nice dinner out before Jason entered full-on finals mode, and I would never see him. His reply, “But wouldn’t it be great if we found our home on our anniversary?” I of course, protested, lost the argument, and as you know we bought the first home we looked at. Who does that happen to?! Also, we did have a nice dinner after house hunting. So in the end, we both won.
…and because this is our first anniversary in our first home, we’re staying in this weekend to cook a meal together, because truthfully, we go out a lot, and are fortunate enough to really go anywhere we’d like, and yet we don’t spend enough time at home celebrating us. So that’s what we’re doing, and I couldn’t be happier about about it.
Jason Wayne, I love the shit out of you. You’re my all-time favorite person. The end.
To 444 more years, my love!
