It’s hard to believe that it has been three years since this …
But at the same time it feels like it has been forever Our wedding was one of the best days of my life … second only to Emmalyne being born. It’s easy for time to fly when you’re spending your life with your best friend. In three short years our lives have changed so much.
We have moved to three different states.
We survived Chris being in Afghanistan for a year.
We got pregnant.
God gifted us with the most amazing baby ever.
Although our actual anniversary is today, we celebrated in Savannah on Saturday. It is just a lot easier to do big things on the weekend We headed downtown to City Market and hit of Belford’s.
We sat out on the patio and it was a PERFECT night. Not too hot with a nice breeze. Our waiter immediately brought us fresh baked bread with honey butter. The butter was AH-MAZING!
For an appetizer we got some baked brie …
And toasted to 60+ more years of wedded bliss.
Em of course was the star of the show and boy did she put on a good one. She was laughing and smiling and talking to all of the waitresses and other diners. She sure loves her daddy!
For my meal I got the blackened salmon and shrimp with mashed potatoes and sautéed seasonal vegetables. It had a bit of a kick to it but it was pretty good. While our food was tasty it was rather pricey. We live to live a little for special occasions but we weren’t “wowed” by the food. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but when we spend that kind of money (a lot for us but not crazy $$) we want to be floored and have our tastebuds singing.
When I married Chris it was hard to imagine life getting any better. We were young, in love, and ready to tackle the world. I never thought I could love him more … and then I saw him become a dad. Seeing him and Emmie together fills my heart with so much joy that it is overwhelming.
Life as a family of three is pretty amazing. I am honestly the luckiest girl in the world to call the two of them mine. As wonderful as the last three years have been I can’t help but be excited for the future because it just seems to get better and better.
