It's our three year anniversary today. I feel like I have grown so much these past three years. Most people wigged out when I was engaged at 20. Most people were probably concerned that I would grow up and change and that Ryan I would grow apart. I was reading something recently about how people are constantly changing. It's inevitable. But we have the choice in which direction we'd like to change. Throughout this marriage I have learned to compromise, step back, and chill out. When we were first married I had all these ideas about how a husband should act. I had a problem with comparing my husband to other guys; I'd read all these sappy Facebook statuses about how other girls' husbands would surprise them with gifts or dinner.
(Some people make me gag.) I had to learn about different love languages: just because Ryan didn't do these things, it doesn't mean that he loves me any less. I am so grateful for all of the things that I have learned so far and for all the things I'll learn in years to come.
Happy three years!
