{three}

Photobucket someone asked me yesterday how long i've been married for. i smiled and said, "three years, tomorrow."

at this, the guy scoffed and got that look on his face that clearly said, you're so young. three years is nothing. 

which is fine. i'm very used to that look, to people calling me a newlywed and saying, "wait'll you've been married as long as ME. THEN you'll know what's up." 

it doesn't bother me because it's true. three years isn't very long. that day in the little white church in the middle of nowhere feels like yesterday. we've got a lot of life left to live.

which is fantastic.

we talked about it last night when barclay got home from work.

i said, "three years isn't very long."
and he said, "that's for sure."


and then i looked at him and i thought about maybe both living till we're in our 90's and hanging out at a coffee shop on our 70th anniversary, me spilling my coffee all over myself, him yelling hoarsely so i can hear him, saying,
"SEVENTY YEARS ISN'T VERY LONG!"
and me hollering back, "BUT THAT'S DUTCH BLITZ NIGHT AT LIZ'S HOUSE!"

and then he'll tuck a stray piece of silver hair behind my ear and turn my hearing aid on for me. and we'll split a cheesecake, like we did on our third anniversary.

it'll be cute.

  2. Happy Anniversary to you guys! <3 I hate when people proverbially shit all over your wedded bliss. Before I got married I was out with some coworkers and they all told me how stupid marriage was. I always have to say "we've been married for 2 years but together for close to 10 so shut the fuck up." ANYWAY your wedding looks like it was gorgeous. I'm so happy for you both. :)

  4. congratulations on your anniversary!

    we will have been married two years in december which seems like no time at al but at the same time i can't remember life before it if that makes sense.

    and when i imagine us as an old couple it makes me laugh as i think we will still bicker but not be able to hear each other :)

  13. Congrats on the three years!
    It will never seem like it's been too long, will it?
    When you're around the person you love, time flies. Luckily, you have your whole life, but sometimes it doesn't seem enough!

    I hope I'm able to marry the love of my life, like you did, and hopefully, celebrate our 70th anniversary, one day. :)

  18. You're stunning! Happy Anniversary! 3 years isn't long, and 2 months certainly isn't, but... people say it like it's a bad thing. We are just beginning! Cheers to that.
