three years.

Three years ago today, Jordan and I said "I do" to the life that lies ahead.

I cannot believe that much time has passed since that cold November day, since friends and family graced us with their presence and their love.

A lot of people say that their wedding day was the best day of their lives. I have always kind of cringed at that, because if that is the best, what, then, is the rest? What about all of the other days that follow?

I do not know if November 22, 2008, was the best day of my life. But I do know that day did change my life forever. I know that I will never forget the gratefulness I felt that day, how in awe I was at how much people loved us, supported us, wanted to be there for us. I know that November 22 was the start of so many good things, and that is what I am celebrating today.

Happy anniversary, Jordan Jones. Thank you for agreeing to walk through this life with me. It has been the greatest adventure I could ask for.

Happy anniversary! I totally agree with you on the "best day of your life" thing... there's so much more ahead and so many more "best days." =) Enjoy your special day and may God bless the two of you with a long, joy-filled life together. (PS- my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on the 20th. =)

Awww! I have lived in wedded matrimony for a year and a half and I will probably always hold my wedding day in high esteem, but it is one of many wonderful days in our life together <3 We also eloped, so there was no pressure to make it the "best day of our life". It was more the "best start" of our lives together!

I am trying to remember our third anniversary, remembering instead our 6th, and thinking as I read here that you are farther down the road than we are in some ways - The wedding is just the beginning. You know; you are wise.
