That's how many days we have been married. :)
(and they say I am bad at math...I even added the leap year. Smartie pants right here.)
OK moving on. :)

Three years ago today I woke up at my parents house and put on the prettiest dress I will ever wear. My Dad was more nervous than I was as he drove my girls and I to the church. I peeked as my brother danced his butt down the aisle as only he would. The same aisle my parents soon walked me down to marry my very best friend...

the guy I used to call Justin Timberlake (behind his back).
the guy I fell for while playing video games.
the guy who took me on a date to Balzac (we may have missed a turn).
the guy who I bought my very first (and second!) home with.
the guy who completely surprised me with the perfect proposal (and ring!) in Cuba.
the guy who took me to a Tim McGraw concert the first summer we dated, before he even liked country music.
the guy who pretty much let me have free reign of wedding planning.
the guy who trusts me enough to be his hair dresser.
the guy who I have the most fun with.

the guy who sings Vanilla Ice with me whenever we pause a movie or show...
{Pause, collaborate and listen
ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Then I flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo - I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle}
the guy who can always make me smile.

the guy who agreed to a dog before really being a dog person just to make me happy.
the guy who loves me and his 4 legged daughter more than anything in this world.
the guy who tried to kill me on our first anniversary bike ride (I kid, sorta).
the guy who built me a bike for Christmas the year we weren't giving each other gifts and decked it out with pink accessories.
the guy who poses for photos with me constantly because he knows he married a photo obsessed crazy person.
the guy who puts up with both front closets being full of my shoes.
the guy who I can always count on to be my shoulder to cry and pour me a glass of wine when I need it most.
the guy who I cannot picture life without.
the guy who will be the best Dad to our children.
the guy who I can't wait to grow old with.

I love you Justin a lot lot. And forever ever.
