3 Years


Yesterday morning Jeremy and I had both forgotten it was our 3 year anniversary.

So that evening after work, we decided to celebrate by ordering an Old Fashioned or two at our favorite bar. We discussed how life would be different if we weren’t married. We talked about how far we’ve come in 3 years – from short black hair to long blonde curls. From the sandy beaches in Mexico to the top of Kala Patthar in Nepal. We talked about our favorite parts of being together and least favorites (for Jeremy it’s doing my laundry – but that was part of our prenup).

After an hour or two of chatting and sipping on our cocktails a man named Larry came and sat down next to us. Larry is a metal artist and architectural designer. In fact, he had a part in building this house. When I told him I blogged about that house and was then invited to a house tour he exclaimed “You’re the blogger!” Apparently he had heard that story. We spent the rest of our evening with Larry talking about life, art, design, architecture. And when we told him it was our anniversary he treated us to champagne. It was perfect.

When we got up to leave we both gave Larry a big hug. He told Jeremy that he was a winner winner chicken dinner. But we all know I’m the lucky winner here.

    Happy 3 years! They fly by, don’t they. Also, when did men getting better at doing laundry? My BNC is doing it as we speak and I am flabbergasted that he uses cold water.


    happy happy anniversary day! Can’t wait till I find a “Jeremy” of my own. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Biggest congrats to you two! I guess this marks the almost 3 year anniversary of me being a reader of yours too! I remember the first time I happened upon your blog from Cup of Jo’s post about your wedding. It’s crazy how time flies! Here’s to many many more years of wedded bliss, overflowing inspiration, exhilarating adventure and filled to the brim happiness to you! And hopefully we all can continue to share in that thanks to this blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Many more happy years to you both!

    Happy anniversary Jeremy & Kathleen! I thought of it yesterday because March 28 also happens to be my birthday. I was going to leave a comment, but I thought it may be inappropriate on the post below. (Sorry if it’s creepy that I remember dates, but I have a knack for that and it’s also my bday as I said.) In any case, congrats! What an achievement. My bf and I have started talking about marriage, and I’d love to hear your 2 cents on how relationships vs marriage are different.
