3 Years

All of a sudden our 3rd Wedding Anniversary happened and then it was gone.  I had to work late, which of course had to happen on our anniversary.  Our fancy dinner reservation had to get pushed back and I didn't have time to freshen up my makeup or put on something "anniversary appropriate."  We rolled into this really nice restaurant - Matt wearing a cute collared button-up while I was wearing a chambray shirt and studded biker boots.  Not what I would normally wear to a nice restaurant, but then again it is Portland and anything goes here, right?  As I freshened up in the restaurant restroom and wiped smudged mascara from under my eyes, I realized that this is exactly what life is all about.  Who cares what I'm wearing or what time it is. A late dinner on a Tuesday night with the love of my life is even more than I could ever ask for.  Our marriage wasn't about the wedding day and it isn't about the anniversary day - each and every day is equally as important as the next.  Every day should be celebrated.

To my husband: living life with you is exactly how I want it.  From doing house work to taking an adventurous trip, I wouldn't want anyone else by my side.  Happy Anniversary (a week ago).


  1. This is such a sweet post and it's so true! I think that sometimes we put too much emphasis on certain "special" days, when really, everyday is special with the right person! Also, I just moved to Portland this summer and I love how you can wear whatever you want here and no one can dress up or you can be casual, and it's fine! :)

    1. You are so right! Thanks for the sweet comment.

  2. Happy Anniversary pretty lady. This is so heart warming to see that true marriage isn't a gorgeous outfit, a fancy dinner date and anything picture perfect, Your marriage is picture perfect - just the way it is! x

  3. Congratulations, Kelley! I love this post. As a very new newlywed, I know how easy it is to get caught up in the fanfare, but what's most important is the two people in love. I hope your next year of marriage is the best yet ;)

  4. "Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works.

  5. Oh, it so cute! i hope you guys will live together very long and happy life) It's always so cool when two people meet each other and became the one. I wrote a Master papers review about relationships and I can say that trust and love are the most important things in the family life.
