4 years

2 months shy of our 3 year dating anniversary, my husband and I got married. We were young and a lot of people were worried that by getting married so young we would inevitably grow apart in our 20's. We haven't grown apart at all. We have grown to know more love than we ever imagined and have expanded that love into a beautiful daughter and now a budding child who we shall meet at the end of the year. We have grown together in life, our plans and ideals we have for our futures following the same path.

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary. I sit here sick and he is working but that is the beauty of growing up. We have responsibilities and broken plans of a date tonight but that will not make our anniversary any less special. It doesn't diminish our love we have for each other. I was excited to have him home for our anniversary and to go on a date since that is always a mystery if he will be on a boat somewhere or in my arms. But I will take him cuddling me and maybe ordering a special meal in any time.
Now for random, "Throughout the years" photos.
(All of our pre-wedding years photos are on my old my sister's computer)
Right after my mom and I made it from CA to LA. I got to see Joey for the first time in a month after he had moved out to Louisiana (right after we got married) to get us all set up.
Our first few days together after I made the trek to Louisiana.
Christmastime before having Leena.
Going in to have Leena.
Learning how to be parents together.
Such a special moment between all of us.

One of our most recent pictures together.

And tomorrow...oh tomorrow. Our baby girl turns 3. One day after our one year wedding anniversary we welcomed little miss into our lives.

For now, I think it's time to eat then rest.
You think Leena will like the idea of an all day nap?

Peace and love.
