3 Years of Always and Forever

The nice thing about working on our anniversary is that I can get flowers at work -- beautiful red, orange and yellow roses (so similar to our wedding flowers!) with some yellow carnations tinged with orange/red on the tip -- Thank you Shawn!

I feel just a tad sad that I won't be able to enjoy them the rest of the week. But not sad enough to not be looking forward to our trip up north and our stay at a B&B sans kids this Thursday night through Sunday morning. (With any luck I'll give you lots to read and look at while we're gone ... and maybe a few pics of the trip when we get back!) However, I do get to enjoy them for the today and tomorrow, so I will. :-)

Shawn occasionally breaks with his tradition of giving humorous cards and that was the case this morning when he already had me a little leaky with excess joy ... my goal in life should simply be to strive to be the person he sees when he looks at me.

Rather than even attempt to describe the meaning in our anniversary, I'm going to share with you all some quotes -- both humorous and serious -- on the anniversary theme -- enjoy!

A happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short. ~Andre Maurois
Marriages are made in heaven and consummated on earth. ~John Lyly, The Anatomy of Wit.
A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. ~Paul Sweeney
When you meet someone who can cook and do housework - don't hesitate a minute - marry him. ~Unknown
The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds - they mature slowly. ~Peter De Vries
Nobody has ever measured, even poets, how much a heart can hold. ~Zelda Fitzgerald
The difficulty with marriage is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character. ~Peter Devries
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow. ~Author Unknown
Marriage: a book of which the first chapter is written in poetry and the remaining chapters written in prose. ~Beverly Nichols
Marriage is our last, best chance to grow up. ~Joseph Barth
True love stories never have endings. ~Richard Bach

P.S. So far I've received several Oohs and Aahs on the flowers and one "Shawn did good." :-)

Happy Anniversary! Our four year is in October (the same day as my 27th birthday). We'll probably celebrate it though while we're in the Dells the week before. Though I doubt we'll get any time alone without Natalie.
