Our third year of marriage

On this past Wednesday, December 1st 2010, Chris and I celebrated our third wedding Anniversary.  It’s amazing that time has honestly flown so fast.  It seems like yesterday that I was planning our beautiful Christmas wedding on the Riverwalk.  We knew this adventure of marriage wasn’t going to be an easy one, but the first two years were a BLAST!  
This last year of marriage was quite a different story.  It seemed that obstacles and tragedy was following us.  I had BOTH of my grandparents pass away this past year (4 months apart) and my sweet uncle Eddie.  My grandmother and uncle died 5 days apart.  I honestly didn’t think I would ever make it out of the depression “hole” that I had dug myself into.  Chris was amazing as always and stuck by my side.  
We are also now on year three of starting our family.  NEVER did I think that having a baby would take this long.  Just about everyone around me has babies or is pregnant, it is taking faith and love to get me through.  I know that God has a plan for us, yet some days it is gut-wrenching to think that I will be 30 this year and am still not a mother.  
This year had it’s good points though.  My beautiful niece, Jaidyn was born, I finally lost the weight that I gained after my first year of marriage, I found my love for Bikram yoga, and we gained a new addition to our family (our boxer puppy, Blaise.)
No matter what seems to be thrown our way, I know that Chris and I will walk side by side as husband and wife and keep smiles on our face until the day we leave this earth.  Marriage truly is an adventure not to be taken lightly and there is nothing better than having your best friend by your side everyday as life unfolds before you.  <3
