Breezy Days: What I've Learned In 3 Years of Marriage

What I've Learned In 3 Years of Marriage

June 4th marked our 3 year anniversary...THREE. I can't really put into words how challenging and rewarding the last 3 years have been. Ryan and I have grown so much as individuals and as a unit. Even though we aren't the same people who got married 3 years ago, I'm so happy with what we've become and are becoming. Here is my list of what I've learned so far {and my list from last year} :)

What I've Learned in 3 Years of Marriage:

// Make time for dates and trying new things together is important aka Dateline and Pizza Hut can only cut it as "date night" for so long.

// Stand up for each other. To friends, to family, to strangers.

// Find hobbies you can participate in together.

// Encourage the successes and be strong for one another while enduring the failures.

// Support the dreams and hard work that comes along with it.

// Fighting. It's inevitable. Take a deep breath, then talk about what is really at the core of your frustration. So much better than raised voices and it's a lot easier to bounce back from.

// Plan trips together. Search for adventure. Enjoy discovering the world with one another.

// A dirty house is less important than a loved one who needs hugs and kisses.

// Granted, a clean house can bring peace and calmness to the home.

// Make sure to always say thank you when necessary.

// Time spent with friends is time well spent.

// Be selfless...listen to your spouse and serve them. Actions can speak louder than words.

// Reminisce on the dating/engagement/honeymoon butterflies to feel warm & fuzzy, but don't miss the opportunity to create more butterfly moments :)

Happy anniversary Ryan, I love you with all my heart & soul. You're my strength, my confidante, and my sweetheart. Can't wait for more eternity with you :)

Cute pics! We celebrated our 3 year anniversary last month and I agree with your list completely. My favorite is the one about standing up for each other. That's absolutely critical.
