Happy Anniversary!
This was us... three years ago today. Sometimes I can't believe three years have already passed. Other days, it seems like we've been together forever.

The past three years have been filled with adventure, joy, conflict, and fun. We've managed to accomplish so much in this short time span... a move back home from across the country, great jobs, a new home. And we've done it all together.

When I see pictures of us from that September day three years ago, I see two people filled with optimism and excitement for the future. What will the next day bring? Will we achieve everything we desire? Can we make this work? The answer is yes, as long as we do it together.

I've racked my brain trying to figure out what sort of gift might adequately show him how much I love him, and how much I value all that we have weathered together. Nothing seems good enough. Nothing can convey the degree of my devotion to this man and this marriage. Fortunately, I found the perfect gift. One that happened to show up at just the perfect time.


Looks like our fourth year together may just be the best one yet.

Jumping up and down b/c the cat's finally out of the bag!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeee! You know how incredibly excited I am for you and your husband.
And yes, the 4th year with be the best because you two will be able to see the perfect child that you created together. A part of you and a part of him combined to create another human being.
Congratulations again! I'm giving you the biggest hug I can (over the computer and all).
Oh yeah, and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. I can't think of a better gift to give your husband than those 2 pink lines. (And you look beautiful, as always, in your wedding gown.)
