To my handsome husband: You are simply the best. The BEST I tell ya!
Today marks our 3rd Anniversary. And I hate to brag, and I’m of course 100% biased, but we had the best wedding ever. Likely because we have the best friends and family ever…but also because it’s when we became partners for life. Cheers to us!
I took some time to reflect on what this past year entailed for us. So far, we haven’t had a dull moment. And given our first little nugget comes along here in a few months, something tells me we won’t any time soon!
So here are some highlights:
Our 5th Jimmy Buffett concert together at Alpine Valley. As long as he’s touring, we are there!
Running the Chicago Marathon. Probably one of the highlights of our marriage to date, and honestly, years to come. Training together, running the whole race together, crossing the finish line hand-in-hand. It was amazing. There will be a next one for us some day, but Chicago 2012 will always be our first!
Volunteering together to serve the free Thanksgiving meal to North Liberty residents. It was a great afternoon of giving back.
Another wonderful holiday season together. We have such great times and memories with both sides of our families.
Visiting our friends in Colorado. What a trip! It was a great way to kick off 2013 and we look forward to many more trips out there exploring other great things the Sunshine State has to offer. Bonus: We also found out here that we were going to be Aunt and Uncle again….#8 is set to arrive this week!!
Another great trip with great friends…attending a friend’s wedding in Charleston, SC. Five days at a house along Folly Beach and exploring historic Charleston. With wedding fun as a bonus! *Fun note here: I found out two days before leaving that I was pregnant. Talk about exciting…but also a bit of a buzz kill as ‘fake drinking’ for 5 days was a bit challenging! ha
Memorial Day weekend…telling the world we are going to be parents…PARENTS! It still doesn’t seem real!
Doing our first triathlon as a relay. I swam, the hubs hates that part anyways, and he finished out with the bike and run. We didn’t set any records, but we had a lot of fun!
Enjoying live music on Lake Okoboji over the 4th of July. It’s our favorite holiday!! It was the perfect afternoon.
And that my friends, pretty much circles us back around to August 2013. Time flies when you are having fun!
In the words of American Pie, “To the next step!”
