Still going strong

Three years ago today, Derek and I got married.

We were married at a quaint little bed and breakfast in Niagara Falls, with twenty people there to share it with us.  I wore a dress straight from my mother’s skillful hands.  We attended a nice dinner afterwards, and that’s it.  It was perfect.  I wouldn’t change a thing.

Every day that passes, I am more and more thankful that he came into my life.  He has changed it in so many ways.  We have been through so much together and I always look forward to spending the rest of my life with him. 

He is sweet, funny, caring and honest.  We understand eachother, yet we bicker and argue about everything!  An ongoing joke in my family leans on the fact that we are just like my dad’s parents, because they did the same thing.  They had a long, wonderful marriage, and raised six wonderful children, so I don’t see anything wrong with a little bickering.  You have to keep things interesting, right?

We met in 2002, after being set up by a mutual friend.  I fell in love with him a few months later, and have been ever since.  In January 2005, we went to San Diego and he proposed one evening, on a sidewalk overlooking the whole city.  It was beautiful.

I couldn’t have asked for a better husband. 

Happy Anniversary, honey!  I am looking forward to many, many more.
