3 Years Ago

3 years ago today a knock on my door changed my life forever. The hubs and I had been officially dating for a little over a month and dating long distance at that since he was stationed in Nc and I was living in WI. Luckily we were able to see each other pretty much every weekend but this particular weekend we were unable to.

The 24th fell on a Friday and I remember starting my day out like usual, school, work and then my family and I took my dad out for his birthday dinner. M had texted me saying he was going up to Charlotte to do some shopping. After dinner I received a text saying he was on his way back but his phone was dead so he'd call when he got home. I thought nothing of it and went back to my apartment where I changed into my pjs and planned to do some homework.

At around 10/11ish M called and asked what I was doing. I told him and he told me to go to my front door. I just assumed he had sent me flowers since he tended to do so frequently but when I went to my door there M was standing. I was shocked. He presented me with three roses and said they represented our pasts, present and future and that he wanted me to be a part of his future. Then he got down on one knee and proposed. Of course I said yes! It was the perfect night

I can't believe in April we will celebrate 3 years of marriage. Everyday I thank God for having M in my life. And we are especially blessed since in July we will be welcoming our new addition. I can't wait to see what the future all brings us. Thanks babe for picking me

And he especially deserves a medal for picking me. I swear he is probably ready to commit me since everytime he calls I always have an emotional breakdown on the phone. I'm sure not something he looks forward to when calling lol!
