Kevin and I celebrated three years of marriage on Tuesday and the anniversary had me thinking about all that has changed in the past three years. Three years is not a significant length of time, but it has been significant time for us. Three years encompass major purchases and career changes, losses and gains to our little family census.
May 2013: Got married.
July 2013: Bought a house together.
September 2013: Moved into the house.
February 2014: Amy switched jobs.
April 2014: Kevin bought a truck.
July 2014: Lost a family member when Flo died.
December 2014: Gained a family member when we got Rue.
March 2015: Positive pregnancy test.
September 2015: Kevin switched jobs.
October 2015: Ava was born.
April 2016: Amy got a new car.
And in the midst of all those big, bold life things, there have been so many little precious moments that pass with minimal fuss or awareness. Cuddles and kisses and dinners and laughs and time together – simply being there for each other and with each other. The big events may stand out on a timeline, but I never want to take for granted all the small, ordinary moments that make a life, make a marriage. I love existing with Kevin. And here’s to decades upon decades of day-to-day living with him.
