Happy Anniversary to Us

Three years ago, on a perfect winter day, I married the love of my life. We had a beautiful ceremony in our church, filled with family and friends, new and old. One of my favorite parts was when my dear friend, Erica, sang the “Lord’s Prayer” a-capella from the balcony of the sanctuary after we recited our own vows. She has a beautiful and powerful voice and it filled the space and my heart.

We held a small reception at the church with everyone who attended the ceremony, and then later in the evening our family and closest friends joined us at a restaurant in Lincoln Park for dinner and dancing. It was all perfect.

Marriage is an amazing and curious thing. It is the best feeling to live life with your best friend and just when you think you know everything there is to know about them, you learn something new. I don’t love being married just because; I love being married because I get to be married to Jason.

So, Happy Anniversary to us!

P.S. Today is also my Uncle Pierre's 21st birthday....so, Happy Birthday to him!
