three years of marriage
somehow it’s our T H I R D anniversary. each june first i smile bigger remembering the best day and how it
has gotten even better since. i will spare the sappiness and just say that i got the absolute best guy for me.
while thinking about our third anniversary, i’ve been thinking about the number 3.
i can’t help it, i love themes and i think the number of years we’re celebrating is significant!
this is a big year for us and our anniversary today marks an exciting update in our lives
with our jobs & where we’ll be next. so as i thought about number three and read more
about it, i thought it lined up pretty well with this year of our life together.
“number 3 resonates with the energies of optimism and joy, inspiration and creativity,
good taste, imagination and intelligence, sociability and society, friendliness, kindness and compassion.
number THREE also relates to humour, energy, growth, and the principles of increase, spontaneity,
broad-minded thinking, demonstrates love through creative imagination, encouragement,
culture, wit, a love of fun and pleasure, freedom-seeking, adventure, exuberance,
brilliance, free-form, being brave, non-confrontational, rhythm, passion, surprise,
enthusiasm, youthfulness, enlivenment, manifesting and manifestation.”
“the number 3 symbolizes the principles of growth. it is optimistic and fun-loving,
and strives to uplift and colour its surroundings.”
i know those are a lot of words & descriptions, but if you knew the changes coming up for us …
this fits so well. this year three for us will represent all of these things. optimism, energy,
growth, spontaneity, freedom-seeking, adventure, surprise, and so much more.
“the 3 energy loves life and needs to share their enthusiasm with others”
i hope we channel these descriptions into our marriage this year and always.
one other thing that comes to mind with #3 is the rule of three.
this writing principle suggests that things that come in threes are “inherently funnier,
more satisfying, and more effective” than other numbers. i like that! i feel like as we round year
three i find our marriage is also funnier, more satisfying, and more effective :) i also laughed out loud
at this article saying “the third year was found to be the happiest time in a couple’s marriage.” agreed!
“the 3 energy can be charming, entertaining and very social. they have a keen intellect and want the best in life –
the pleasant, the beautiful and the luxurious. they feel the need to inspire and beautify the world.
the natural capabilities of the 3 allows them to take anything they have a create something beautiful from it.
the 3 is a free-form energy that does not work well with structure, plans or routines. they are an open channel with spiritual
insights and inspiration for living life. they are the creator, not the worker. the 3 energy is capable of deep love and emotions.”
i hope we live up to all of these “3” qualities as we celebrate 3 years! the description seems to fit quite well.
for my last cheesy 3 thing, my three favorite moments from this year of marriage: (if i have to narrow down)
- working together at google and having breakfast every morning together…started off every morning so right!
- exploring the taj mahal at dusk on thanksgiving day and being so in awe, & having my favorite conversation of the year
- watching you shake in your shoes as you flew the quad copter for the first time over niagara falls with a crowd.. hehe
we are celebrating tonight and chase has planned it all, so i’ll be back with more from that!
see our second anniversary celebration last year that i planned with a fun scavenger hunt ..
pretty clever if i do say so myself :) so let’s see what chase has up his sleeve this time!
still can’t believe it’s year #3. our first came fast, then our second, and now here we are.
it only gets better and it’s never long enough! cheers to many more. love you ctr.
thanks for somehow making each year better. can’t wait to celebrate tonight!
