3 years

I wanted to post the video but you can't embed this video from YouTube. Anyway...the lyrics.

Little Moments - Brad Paisley

Well I'll never forget the first time that I heard
That pretty mouth say that dirty word
And I can't even remember now what she backed my truck into
But she covered her mouth and her face got red
And she just looked so darn cute
That I couldn't even act like I was mad
Yeah I live for little moments like that

Well that's just like last year on my birthday
She lost all track of time and burnt the cake
And every smoke detector in the house was goin' off
And she was just about to cry until I took her in my arms
And I tried not to let her see me laugh
Yeah I live for little moments like that

I know she's not perfect but she tries so hard for me
And I thank god that she isn't 'cause how boring would that be
It's the little imperfections it's the sudden change in plans
When she misreads the directions and we're lost but holdin' hands
Yeah I live for little moments like that

When she's layin' on my shoulder on the sofa in the dark
And about the time she falls asleep so does my right arm
And I want so bad to move it 'cause it's tinglin' and it's numb
But she looks so much like and angel that I don't wanna wake her up
Yeah I live for little moments
When she steals my heart again and doesn't even know it
Yeah I live for little moments like that

This is the song (and artist) who has represented our lives these past 3 years. Today is Big A & my 3rd wedding anniversary.

It's hard to believe that three years has gone by because when I close my eyes, I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach leading up to our "meeting" before the wedding and wedding pictures. I was so nervous, I just wanted the day to be perfect. I walked into the sanctuary and he was standing with his back toward me as I walked up the aisle. He turned around and that look he gave me - I knew that he loved me more than anything in this world. And I felt the exact same way. We talked and hugged and he cried (he's so sweet). I wiped his tears with my gloves....it was just magical.

The whole wedding was just what I pictured. Our friends and family in my home church...were almost irrelevant (haha). I hardly listened to the service; we just kept whispering to one another. I do know the pastor used a verse we didn't choose for the sermon. I don't know if he just liked the 1 Corinthian 13 love verses better than the verse I chose or what, but it was nice anyway.

The reception was great. I danced the night away. I seriously don't think I hardly talked to anyone (what a bad hostess) if they weren't on the dance floor. But I had fun. I was young, in love, and with no cares in the world! Now, I just have cares in the world. :) I wouldn't change any of it.

Happy anniversary, Big A!

Awww!
Happy Anniversary!
Here's to many, many more happy years :)

I just stumbled across the vows my husband and I wrote each other and wanted to post them, but decided to wait until MY anniversary. But that's not for another 3 months...I'll probably have forgotten by then. I'm awful about posting, haha.

Anyway, here's to love :)
