Three Years.

September 1, 2007.

I was a teenage bride, just shy of my twentieth birthday. I was so giddy and in love. We knew we were really young, but it didn’t matter, because we just knew that it was right.

I am so happy to say that we weren’t wrong.

Three years. Several jobs between the two of us. Grad school. Dropping out of grad school. Starting a business. Having a baby. Buying a home. Growing up a lot... together. This has been one crazy adventure.

On our wedding day, we were in love, and the excitement of it all was probably our biggest bond.

Living life together has created a deeper love, a raw connection and stronger bond between us. We have had hard times and amazing times, and have seen each other at our best and worst and most real. And we’re still here. And we’re still excited, and more in love than ever.

I have learned so much about love, and about life and human nature and relationships and myself, from my marriage.

{Manny-- thank you for being you. Thank you for sharing your life with me. I am so glad that I am your wife, that we’re facing the world together, and raising a child together. Thank you for believing in me, supporting me, telling me I am beautiful, and reminding me that I am loved. This has been the best three years of my life. Here’s to the next 70 (give or take). I love you. ~Hannah}
