My husband

{I would typically do an eye roll, or multiple, at this kind of post…so trust me, I get it if that is your reaction!}

Happy Anniversary to my incredible husband! Rather than write a new blogpost entirely dedicated to Chris, I thought it appropriate (aka easier) to share my previous sappy, social media posts from the last few years. We are extremely fortunate to have each other, and I couldn’t imagine doing life with anyone other than, him! November 16 , 2013 was one heck of a gorgeous day, filled with so many loved ones.  We happily reminisce on this beautiful weekend all the time! For those interested, here is our 3.5 minute wedding highlight video.

Chris and I are both hoping this next year of marriage will be our best one yet! We are committed, determined, and stronger than ever!

November 16, 2014 — 365 days ago at nearly this exact moment (3:30p), my dad walked me down the aisle to marry the most phenomenal person. We were surrounded with so much love on such a special day. One wonderful year down, and a lifetime to look forward to!10349985_10101462780278734_5299648298401040578_n

November 16, 2015 — Two years ago today we said our vows in front of our amazing friends and family, and committed ourselves to each other for a lifetime. It was an absolutely beautiful day! ••• I can easily say these past 12+ months have, by far, been the most difficult in my 32 years of life. Looking back, Chris and I have experienced incredible pain and heartache, yet so much continued happiness. It is because of him I am able to keep my head up, with a smile on my face. I cannot wait to see what life has in store…hopefully these next 12 months will hold the brightest of moments and memories. Happy 2nd Wedding Anniversary to he kindest, most considerate, loving husband. I am lucky beyond imagination. 12239927_10101994498241674_1749636877522527682_n

Nov. 16, 2016 — Chris and I took an anniversary trip to Los Olivos two weekends ago. Soon after we arrived, we were outside together enjoying the sounds of nature, peacefulness, and feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. We were super excited because the rental house was amazing, and we had a great weekend ahead of us! Reese and I moved to get a better view of the sunset, and I caught Chris staring at us…so I asked what he was thinking about.

His (partially edited) response…”I’m just so lucky you’re my wife. We are so lucky. I love our little family, and although it’s not what we want it to be right now, and we’ve gone through hell and back…Look how lucky we are…We are in a gorgeous place, we have a great time together, work is going well, you’re beautiful, Reese is awesome. I just love our little family. I’m so happy we have each other.” And so on…

I wish I had been able to capture this on video and replay it forever. I often think how fortunate I am to have Chris as my husband, especially in moments like this. Our life is far from perfect and our biggest dream yet to come true, but we’ve managed to look at the bright side, fight through the pain and heartbreak, continue to have fun and put smiles on our faces…because we have each other. Just as in this photo from November 16th, 2013…I look at Chris with awe and amazement and will never forget how lucky I am. It was the best day, with the most incredible people. Happy THREE years, with a lifetime to go!15135925_10102566997139294_4799163752427631722_n

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best. — Robert Tew
