All You Need Is Love


Three years ago today, on a warm and sunny spring afternoon, Ben and I exchanged rings and said "I do."


I won’t get all mushy on you, but marrying your best friend is…the best!

Tonight we’re off to celebrate at a chi-chi French restaurant. Hopefully he doesn’t make me eat snails… ;) Talk to you tomorrow!


How long have you been with your sweetie? Who’s single & ready to mingle?!

    AWWW Have a great night! I have been married for 11 years. And I do feel I’ve married my best friend as well. We have 1 daughter (he adopted my daughter) and a lot of people say they don’t talk as much or their life starts to shift around there kids. We don’t do that, yes of course she is a huge priority, but we still talk and laugh and enjoy each others company. So enjoy your time and when you add kids to the mix, still continue to spend time together! :)

  2. Aw congratulations! My hubby and I celebrate our three year anniversary on July 19th (that’ll be NINE years together total!) Have fun celebrating!!!

  3. Congrats!! =D And snails aren’t bad! I made hubs eat escargot on our honeymoon, lol!!

    It was so fun to read everyone’s comments… I’ve been with my boyfriend for almost two years now, but we aren’t even halfway through college so marriage seems a little bit distant. :) All of you guys are making me awfully excited, though!

    • ktlovespie 04.05.2011

      I know what you mean! My bf and I will be celebrating our three year anniversary this May and I’m just finishing up my first year of college. Marriage seems a long, long way off. (Plus my mother gave specific instructions, no getting married until after I graduate college!)

      Congrats to you Kristin! And also SharonF, wow!

    Happy Anniversary!!!

    My boyfriend and I have been together for about 9 months. My birthday was a few days ago and he gave me a card with a personal message from him, not just saying happy birthday but how we’ve been together for almost a year, how great it’s been and how excited he is for the future. It was such a sweet little gesture, and I’m lucky to have him.
