life is a journey and love is what makes it worthwhile.
Today is a special day for me. And my fiance. It marks the three year anniversary of our very first date! It is hard to believe that our story officially began three whole years ago. In some ways, it seems like a lifetime ago....and in other ways, everything still feels fresh, new, and exciting. A lot has changed since that night. We have fallen in love, shared some incredible experiences, and now? We are getting ready to start the next chapter of our lives. He proposed this summer - and honestly? It was the happiest day of my life.
Our anniversary plans will be pretty low-key this year. Maybe a comfy night on the couch or a movie night. It may be simple, but it sounds perfect to me. Any excuse to spend time together! Since the wedding is coming up quickly (another five months. Crazy.) we have opted to keep things simple on purpose. A smaller gift for him and no gift for me. Why? We went wedding band shopping recently and it ended up being a little more than we were thinking. This was thanks largely to my expensive taste. So! A nice, laid-back night in with the person I love most. Perfection.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to be thankful today. Thankful for the man I love, for the incredible journey we have to look forward to, and for the last three years of my life. He has made me the best possible version of myself. And I only hope that I have done the same for him.
