Three years ago today Brian and I were anxiously awaiting for the clock to strike 7pm so we could stand up in front of our family and friends and say “I Do.” While it has only been three years since we have been officially married, exactly 10 years ago today we made our relationship “official” and it really blows my mind that we have been together for a whole decade. This morning I thought it would be fun to look through our wedding day photos and I could not believe how many things I forgot about, or was reminded of as I looked through the photos.  Anyone who has planned or been part of a wedding knows the whole thing is kind of a whirlwind, but there are definitely moments that stick out to me and ones that I know I will never forget.

Looking back on it our wedding day was just that, one day.  One day in what will be a lifetime of memories and life experiences shared together.  I’m not saying it’s not an amazing day, because it really is,  I mean, when else  do you get to spend the whole day with your favorite people, eating, drinking, laughing and feeling like you are on top of the world? But, while our wedding day was truly one of the best days of my life, I have been surprised about is how many days since being married have also been “the best day of my life.” In the past three years we have moved (more than once…), purchased our first home (and now second), travelled to some incredible place, started new jobs, and of course had our beautiful baby girl.   I can only hope there are more days in our near (and distant) future that I can also add to my list of “best days together”.  Whether there are or aren’t, one thing I know for sure is that I am very grateful for the man I get to call my husband that I have by my side.  So, to all the brides to be out there, enjoy every moment of your wedding day, but know that if you forget a few,  there will be more than a few amazing days and moments ahead.
