3 Years

Three years ago I was sitting in a hotel room with my best friend from college. It was the night before my wedding. I sat there talking to her pretending that I was not nervous. It was not until the next day right before the ceremony that my nerves really kicked in. I remember eating dinner, that we got from Burger King because the hotel restaurant was closed along with every other place near by, and thinking about how tomorrow was going to be life changing. I was about to marry my all time best friend forever. It was going to be me and him forever. I thought it was only fitting that I was having dinner with my other best friend.
Look at us in college. It seems like a life time ago.

Tonight I spent the evening with one of my new best friends Adilyn. She my be only 8 months old, but I consider her on of my best friends. She is a great listener, she never interrupts me when I am talking. She always knows how to cheer me up. I just can't stay down when she gives me her gummy smile. (She has four teeth now so her smile is not as gummy anymore :( I just can't help to think about how much has changed in the past three years. I never thought that I would have Adilyn. I of course planned on being a mom, but it was always something that would happen in the future. Yet here I am in the future with a loving husband and daughter.

Tomorrow Orion and I will write a letter to each other. We do it every anniversary. As a wedding gift someone made us an anniversary book. It is just a notebook with a sweet cover on it. It has pictures of Orion and I when we were dating, engagement pictures, and the Temple we were sealed in. Inside it reminds us to write down how much we love each other and how much we mean to each other. It is such a good way to celebrate our love every year. This year will be a little different because we have our little lady so we won't really be doing anything big. Just writing letters and going to dinner after Adilyn falls asleep.


  1. Happy anniversary Kayde! You and you're family are truly amazing and beautiful!
