Warning: Sappiness in this post!

Yesterday was Matt and I's 3 year anniversary. Its crazy to me that 3 years ago today we were leaving Roanoke to head our mountain cabin. If I remember correctly the weather was about the same (minus the rain storm that pushed the ceremony inside).

Last night we went to Riviera. I highly recommend it. Its fairly new and has a great atmosphere. We were almost the only ones there when we arrived at 7, but several more showed up throughout the night. My favorite dish was their calamari because of the pile of ooey gooey peas, blue cheese and some sort of orzo that they came on top of... delish!

One of my favorite things to do with Matt is going out to eat, splitting a bottle of wine and just talking. We are very blessed to have the love that we do. I don't ever want to take it for granted. We were thinking last night, we have a pretty amazing life. I am very thankful for that!

Matt helps me in so many ways, he is patient (I am growing), he likes to relax (I don't even think that word was in my vocabulary before we met), he supports me (I like to do a lot of crazy things), he is consistent (I can be extreme), he makes me laugh (this really is one of my favorite qualities of his). I could go on and on...

Now its your turn, if you are married, what are you thankful for?

I am thankful that my wife is not into foods that come with a "pile of ooey gooey peas, blue cheese and some sort of orzo ... on top".

I am thankful that my husband is so supportive and laid back...especially when I am incapable of being the same way. I think it helps to have the opposite end of the spectrum!

I am thankful for my husband's sense of humor, as demonstrated by his comment. :) I also appreciate his patience with me when I am being unreasonable, and the fact that he loves me no matter what I do or say.
