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?!

  6. Laura 04.05.2011

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I will have been married to my hubby for 3 years on May 25th! And we still haven’t gone on a honeymoon. I think we’ve been together for about 6.5 years? Sounds like a ridiculously long time when i say it out loud. :)

  15. Tessa 04.06.2011

    Happy anniversary! I’ve been with my hubs for 10 years, and married for almost 4 (in June). I agree with the comment that you had a few posts ago – sometimes it feels like we just got married yesterday =)

  16. Stephanie 04.06.2011

    I’m on a break with mine….. :S dunno what to do. When do you know this is it or not? help…

    • Jessica A 04.06.2011

      I am going to sound SO cliche saying this: But you just know. Before I was married my friends told me that all the time and I didn’t believe them.
      But it is true. How did I know Joseph was the one? He put God before himself and me. He put me before himself. I felt complete, calm and beautiful around him. When I thought of the possibility of spending the rest of my life with him I felt content. He never said (or says) a cross word to me. He is patient and selfless. Most of all, he sought out my heart and not my body.

      • Mom 04.06.2011

        I agree with Stephanie-someone described the “knowing” as….. I stopped looking at or for anyone else. I wanted to look over every day when waking up at the pillow next to me and have his head laying on it:)

        • Mom 04.06.2011

          I mean I agree with Jessica:)

    • BostonGirl213 04.06.2011

      I know this will sound cliche too, but I don’t think you ever really know… It’s not about how you “feel”, it’s about how you “choose to feel.” Love is a choice, not a giant hole you fall into and out of. Humans CHOOSE… so whether you choose to stay together or walk away, it’s still a choice you make. Of course, I’m assuming you’re single. If you’re married, my advice would be to seek Godly counseling and try to stay married. Divorce is not it’s all cracked up to be.

  17. Jessica A 04.06.2011

    Happy anniversary!
    My hubs and I have been married a whole 6 months. They have been the best and the hardest 6 months of my life but I wouldn’t trade them for anything!

  18. Hope 04.06.2011

  29. Erika 04.06.2011

    Happy Anniversary!! I hope your dinner was fabulous (and snail-free!).

    I just got back from my honeymoon two weeks ago so my hubby and I are brand-newlyweds :-D. We’ve been together about 2.5 years and I agree, marrying your best friend is the best.

    However, I also enjoyed my single and ready to mingle time in college! Looking back I think we found each other at the right time.

  30. Jen K 04.06.2011

  38. Jess 04.06.2011

  39. Happy Anniversary! I just did an ethnic food post and mentioned that French is one of the only that I haven’t tried in the Des Moines area! You’ll have to let us know how it was!

  40. Aweee:) I love that statue so much! Happy Anniversary:)

  41. Jackie 04.06.2011

    Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a wonderful night!

    My husband and I just celebrated our 2 year anniversary in March. We’ve been together for a total of 7 years this June. What can I say…I like to think things through before jumping in with both feet. :-)

  42. Jess S 04.06.2011

    Happy Anniversary!! My husband and I have been together for 8 1/2 years and married for 6 1/2! (wow, that sounds like a long time when you write it down…we got married young, though, fairly soon after college) It’s been a great ride so far!

    Thoroughly single. But congrats to you and yours!

  45. Lisa 04.07.2011

    I’m single, but NOT ready to mingle…frankly, I just don’t care about dating anymore. Guys simply aren’t worth my time. I can’t imagine HAVING to come home to someone every night. My life is just that…MY life.

  46. Vanessa 04.07.2011

    Im coming up on my 3 year anniversary of marriage. Two weeks away and I feel like Ive been married for 25 years. People say first five years is like the honeymoon of marriage, I dont think so……… I always hope for the hard times to be over and to start the “honeymoon stage” of our marriage. Glad you at least are with your best friend and seem to have a great anniversary.

  47. Juani 04.12.2011

    Congrats,you guys make such an awesome couple,there will be lots and lots more anniversaries to come.

    My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years and 5 months.Sometimes it feels like we’ve just always been together (in a good way),and other days it feels like we’ve just started dating.I think that’s the sign of a good relationship ;)

  48. Jana 04.14.2011

    I’m just catching up on some of your posts and this date is my anniversary too! We have been married for 8 years and together since 1995 – we were in high school!!! Enjoy each day like it is April 5!
