Today my husband and I celebrate our 3rd anniversary.  In some ways it seems like we've been married a lot longer than three years.  We've been through a lot.  We got married while in seminary in 2007 and here we are now, three years and three states later.  We've grown so much as individuals and as a couple since our nuptials.  We have had to say goodbye to a lot of old friends in order to say hello to new ones. 
On our anniversary, I always sit back and reflect on our crazy wedding weekend, and all of our friends and family travelled from their homes in other states to HOT Fort Worth, Texas.  Just a word of advice: NEVER try to have a wedding in the summer in Texas.  You can wait until fall, trust me.  We always remember how thankful we are for our friends in Texas that helped us as well as the sacrifices our friends and family made to be there for us on our special day.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from our wedding day.

On our first anniversary, we packed a moving truck.  It was August 4, 2008.  It was 112 degrees in Fort Worth that day, almost as hot as it was on our actual wedding day. 
That wasn't exactly how I thought we'd spend our anniversary.  We did go eat dinner at The Italian Inn.  If you're ever in Fort Worth, it is such a fun and romantical restaurant.  They have a dance floor and live piano music.  And, you can leave your mark.  I wonder if it's still there.

Here's a photo of us from that first anniversary.

Not exactly a closeup, but that way you can't see how tired we were.  The next morning we loaded up and drove to Atlanta, destination number 2 on the journey of our marriage.

Here's us on our 2nd anniversary.  As is the trend, we didn't have much money for an elaborate celebration.  We went to a lovely dinner at what would become our favorite place for celebratory dinners in the Atlanta area, Relish

This is a more recent photo of us.  Each anniversary so far has been celebrated in a different state.  This year, we're in Kentucky [next year, who knows?].  We're planning to have a quiet supper at home tonight and go out one night this weekend.  Some people get to celebrate their anniversaries by taking trips...we haven't been blessed with that opportunity, but maybe someday!  We're just thankful to have another day together and are excited to see what comes next in the life of the McDonalds!
