Young Lovers Beware

It's wedding season! It seems like my Facebook feed is full of engagement rings and couples staring longingly into each others eyes. Something like this:
That photo was taken three years ago on our wedding day. And just like many of the couples getting married this summer, I had exiting plans for our future anniversaries (fancy dinners, romantic get-aways and sparkly jewelry were just a few of those plans!). And yes, Chris is wonderful and I've had many a fancy dinner, more than a few a romantic get-aways and plenty of sparkly jewelry in the past three years.

However. For our third year wedding anniversary, Chris and I went to the movies. 

So young lovers beware, this may be your life in three short years. 

It may start with some movie snacks:
And you might be overjoyed that your husband remembered that you like cherry slushies:
You might incur stares from other movie goers as you put your swollen pregnant feet up on the chair in front of you:
And force your husband to take an embarrassing photo in his 3D glasses:
Yes, it's true. Just three short years after your romantic wedding you might have a "boring" anniversary night out at the movies.


It may surprise you that this regular old night at the movies, is your favorite anniversary yet:
Happy Anniversary to my sweet husband. I love our romantic get-aways, our fancy dinners and the sparkly jewelry... but I love being your buddy most of all.


  1. Happy Anniversary! You two make up a very special couple! Every moment is special because of the love you share! Enjoy your day and many,many more days ahead! Love to all 3 of you!!
