Well, this past week was our 3rd anniversary. I can't believe it. It has flown by and feels like we just got married a couple months ago. Everything is still fresh and romantic and I am going to try hard to do the little things as long as I live to keep it that way! This year it was my turn to come up with the surprise. (We had already planned to go to
The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson
If you were falling, Then I would catch you.
Need a best friend? Well, we’re quite a match
I love the way you kiss me darlin’
You take me the way I am.
It all began when, you wrote that letter.
And here we are babe, now three years later.
I still love the way you call me baby
And you take me the way I am

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise,

I purchased a massage table from a friend at school and he thought she was just bringing it over, but she was really coming to give him a special massage! He LOVED it. When I came home from school, he had dinner ready and afterwards he took me to a park where we played on the playground and he pushed me in the swings for a while. I love the swings and I haven’t swung since I was 11. It was so fun! When we came home we laid in the floor and talked for a couple hours. It was the most romantic night. We just talked about how much we loved and appreciated each other and our goals and other husband/wife stuff. I told him that I wanted to write him a love letter but I couldn't think of anything original. Then in the car on the way to school that morning of our anniversary, I started crying because it hit me what I should say to him as to why I love him so much. I realized that
