Take me there......

3 years ago....


when we vowed our lives together....


in front of family and friends...



and for the rest of our lives, Brett and I will continue this dance together....




In the 3 years that we have been blissfully married we have parented 3 kiddos (1 dog, 2 beautiful girls). We have lived in 3 different zipcodes. Same home, but they've managed to change the zip codes on us 3 times. We continue to establish our home together one room at a time and since our wedding date we have painted and re-furnished 3 different rooms. Including the home we live in we continue to pay the mortgage on 3 different properties, thankfully we have renters! Although Brett has had to replace 3 different tenants due to their inability to pay and afford rent. We have owned 3 different makes of vehicles. Our cars have reliably taken us to and from work. Brett has worked for 3 different companies: West USA Realty, JP Morgan Chase, and University of Phoenix. He has worked at 3 different branches with Chase. I continue to work as a RN for Banner and have worked at 3 different Banner facilities (Banner Mesa, Banner Children's, and Banner Gateway). I work full time 3 nights a week. Working 3 nights a week has allowed me to keep our girls out of daycare, but we have relied on 3 different sitters (Lily, Amy, and Hillary)to come to the house to watch the girls. During our time off Brett and I have managed to travel just the two of us to 3 new places, St. Lucia, Boston, and New York. We also managed 3 vacations with Brooklyn to the Midwest(for Andro's Bayfield wedding while also seeing family in Fargo), Clearwater, and San Diego. Out of all the vacations we've taken since our marriage 3 of them have been roadtrips together. During our vacations we have managed to see baseball games in 3 different major league ball parks (Wrigley, Fenway, and Yankee Stadium). Since after our wedding our home has been open to many out of town family and friend visits. Jamey, Rhonda and the boys have even managed to visit us all together on 3 seperate occasions. While our parents have come too many times to count. We've welcomed many new additions into our circle of friends and family. From our wedding party, 3 of Brett's groomsmen became first time Daddies (Kelly, Brady, and Andro) and 3 of my bridesmaids became first time Mommies (Nicole, Keri, and Nichole). I have even help host baby showers for 3 dear friends of mine. In the "downtime" of the 3 years of marriage we have enjoyed many hours of watching 1 of the 3 TVs we own. We've purchased 3 different DVD sets of TV series (Sopranos, The Office, and Dexter). The 3 seasons of Dexter has been our favorite. 3 is probably the number of times I have won against Brett in Scrabble. 3 is probably the number of times Brett has beat me when we raced to complete a game of Suduko. As you can see our 3 years of marriage have been full of incredible memories. I'd love for someone to take me back 3 years to re-live that day all over again.
