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).
