Celebrating 3 years of waking up next to the man who put my dreams to shame by making real life better than I could have ever imagined.
Our 3rd year was our craziest - which says a lot since we met online and on our wedding day, I'd known you for less than 6 months. And since our first year of marriage we lived in the middle of nowhere Missouri honeymooning in the woods for 3 months - plus a weird trip to Nepal where we would truly see each other at our worst (*don't drink the water), then moved to Asheville, traveled back and forth to Hawaii almost every other month shooting weddings, started a new business and made our first home together. Since our second year of marriage, we opened a beautiful space with zero dollars, hosted a 4 day creative gathering in the mountains with people who changed my life, and you had 4 different jobs that year and landed on the one you now love. You encouraged and believed in me when I didn't know what I was doing. But our third year, that was the craziest. We started with a million dreams of growing everything we'd already created, meanwhile I was unknowingly growing our newest and most perfect creation inside of me. I remember your face when we first heard her heartbeat. I remember crying in a Mexican restaurant because the doctor told us I had an abnormal uterus which meant higher chance of miscarriage & likely wouldn't carry her full term. I cried for weeks and you let me lay in bed watching Gilmore Girls for what felt like an eternity. You took care of me when I was sick and a lot of times just because I was sad. You had enough hope and faith for both of us when I had none. You work harder than anyone I know but you never let me feel alone. You've been by my side for every doctors appointment. When you won't be home for dinner, you wake me up early and take me out for breakfast. We moved closer to my family on a bit of a whim decision and have fallen in love with our new home in Greenville. And in a few short weeks, we become a family of 3. You make every good part of life a little bit brighter, and every scary part of life seem small compared to the power we have inside of us. You are and will always be my whole world. Happy Anniversary, babe.
