happy 3 year anniversary!

To quote my dear friend Michelle Richards (names and years replaced), "Aaron and I recently celebrated our 3 year anniversary. We talked it over and we think we're going to shoot for 4." Haha... I love that Michelle!!


Aaron and I hit our 3 year mark last week!! Part of me feels like - Wow! It's been 3 years already? And part of me feels like we've always been married. When has there not been a furry, cuddly, snuggler in my bed? :) It sounds so cliche, but Aaron is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I dated some serious goobers and am so glad I chose to marry who I did. He is my level head. He is my confidence boost. He is my anti-stress pill. He is my balance in every way. He is my best friend. He is the most kind, gentle and fun person I know. He is the biggest goof ball I know. He makes me an even bigger goof ball than I ever knew I could be. And this year, he gave me our Emery, for which I owe him the world. As we always say, "life is good with you"! I love you, Aaron!
Here's a picture from our anniversary date (and some from previous years just for fun!). So glad we had a gift card to Olive Garden stashed away or let's be honest, we probably would have eaten at Taco Bell. We're so cheap. Gifts exchanged: I got Aaron sushi (his all time favorite meal - sick) and secretly learned to play the guitar and played him one of our favorite songs (Little Big Town - Bring It On Home). He got me 2 shirts with my Skinny Bovine's Kitchen logo printed on them. Love it! They will be for sale in all fine retail stores... or not. :)

3 years

2 years (hiding a 7 month pregnant belly behind Aaron)

2 months shy of 1 year (on our late honeymoon in Mexico)... closest I could find! :)

Congrats, guys! And Janssen said it already, but I had also forgotten what you looked like with your blonde hair when I first knew you! :)

Happy Anniversary, Wilks! An excellent decision to get married and an even smarter one to go for year 4. I don't think I've ever been quoted before. It feels so good I might start thinking about what I say before I say it. Congratulations!

Way to go on three! Isn't it sad sometimes to know that the first years of marriage are gone. Many more great ones to come but still sad nonetheless. Congrats guys!

I just realized how depressing my comment was. Three years is awesome! I'm glad you guys got to go out. I always overeat at Olive Garden. It's a bad situation. :)

Cute post with pics of each year. If we did that I think we would look exactly the same in every pic since neither of us ever change our hair very much...except for that terrible time when David didn't get his hair cut for about 8 months after he moved away from Johnny. haha.
