The Day That I Gained a Major Holiday Date For Life!

Today I am celebrating my three year anniversary with my husband. I couldn't be happier. He is my number fan, my rock, my supporter. When I think I just can't do it and I want to pull the plug on this crazy blog project of mine he is there to talk me out of it.

When I found out that I was pregnant, I was scared that he was going to run away. He took my hand and said, "WE'RE going to be okay"

At times I'm irrational, more times than others I am irritated beyond consoling but he is there to give me my space and when I finally let go of whatever it was that robbed me of my energy he rubs my back or gives me a hug letting me know it's okay. I can be a difficult woman, I won't lie. I am lucky that he is man enough to be patient and he loves me just the way I am.

He is the best husband and father I could have asked for - he gets the job done. He will change a smelly diaper without any complaints. He has cleaned the crib mattress our daughter got sick on many times at 12 or 1AM.

He is a true partner.

I once thought I was the unmarrying kind. Not that I didn't believe in the union, I was just paranoid of being with a man that would philander or leave me - it's what I am use to seeing in my family. I was skeptical and everytime I gave my heart to a man, my timing was off or bad things happened. I guess I accepted the fate that I wasn't deserving of that kind of pure love.

I am glad that I was wrong.

 At SF City Hall. I have to mention that I was also 7 months pregnant in this photo.I like telling our daughter that she was there at the wedding too.

This is my other favorite photo from that day:

A quiet moment of pure happiness - I found my partner for life.

If we did have a traditional wedding, we would have danced to this song:

Back to writing about eye shadow and lipstick tomorrow!

I'm also lucky that he's planning to build a makeup storage unit for me since we don't have room in our bedroom for a vanity table.


  1. I'm a new follower so I haven't read too many posts but this is AWESOME! Kudos to you and your hubby; this post was really inspirational. I consider myself the non-marrying kind as of now, but I hope I will meet someone as kind and embracing. It is so wonderful to hear that he also supports your passion and supports you and your blog. Happy anniversary!

  2. That's so sweet! You guys look amazing together :)

    Happy 3 year anniversary. Hope you'll still be blogging at your 50th anniversary <3

  3. L, in that one picture, your new husband's head appears to be on that a fashion thing?


  4. Hi Rhapsode - thanks so much for your kind words. Let me tell ya - I never had a lasting luck with love. That's a story to be told over a round of drinks at Happy Hour. I am lucky we have found each other. We were friends for a while for first so we followed a non-traditional path to the alter.

    HA - I'm sure you'll be blogging 51 yrs! By then it'll just be mental teleporting haha - you are so sweet!

  13. Lexi - Happy Anniversary. :) A lovely post.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with appreciated solitude on the blog. I think so many young women can relate to your experience and it really does take time and respect of oneself to choose to be comfortable with our own company. Your comment was very honest and I appreciate your time to share. Have a beautiful weekend. :)

  14. Hi Shannon,
    Have you ever met someone for the first time and you end up having the most amazing conversation with them like you have been life long friends? That's how I feel when I read your blog. You make it easy for me to be honest with the world.

    Thanks so much for taking the time and checking out my space - it means a lot to me!

    I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  15. Lexi!
