{Blessed for 12 Married for 3}

Blessed for 12 years with one of the most amazing people I know. I have called him so many things during our 12 years together...buddy, boyfriend, man friend, roomate, fiance, best friend, husband, hubz, father of my children, etc.

What we have is rare. The memories. The experiences. Over a decade of love. Every year we get closer to spending more time together than we were apart and I couldn't feel more happiness and love. Everyday he amazes me. His love. His patience. His grace. His strength. His kind heart. Wonderful in every way through my eyes...he's always been this way...ever since we were 16 years old. I struggle to remember one single thing that is the same about me since I was 16 years old but the most important thing in my life is I have been Ryan's partner.

On this special day we celebrate three years of marriage and I can't possibly find words that would do justice to describe how utterly blessed I am to have my husband in my life. I will never be able to express how thankful I am or give enough thanks to God for an amazing partner that He made just for me. My first, my last, my always.

Enjoy the lovely passage I found:

The union of husband and wife merges two persons in such a way that little can affect one without also affecting the other. Oneness in marriage doesn’t mean losing your personality in the personality of the other. Instead, it means caring for your spouse as you care for yourself, learning to anticipate his or her needs, helping the other person become all he or she can be. The creation story tells of God’s plan that husband and wife should be one (Genesis 2:24), and Jesus also referred to this plan (Matthew 19:4-6). (Commentary explanation for Ephesians 5:31-33)

See how were celebrated our anniversary here. And read about year 1 {a quiet celebration...finally going home after Reegan's hospital stay}  & year 2.
