Fireflies & 3 Year Anniversaries

“To me you are the light from a light bulb that breaks sometimes
and the tender warmth inside is released into my life”
On June 12th Nate and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. We went out for sushi and frozen yogurt the night before and spent our actual anniversary evening with friends and family at Nate’s weekly softball game. He sweetly apologized several times for making us spend our anniversary at a softball game – but the funny thing was that I never even thought twice about it. My favorite flowers (tulips) and a sweet card were waiting for me when I got home from work earlier that day and he (jokingly) said that he was sorry he wasn’t able to give me expensive jewelry. It got me to thinking about the people out there that really do feel like they need to celebrate special dates in a certain way – on the exact date, at a certain place, with an expensive gift. I just can’t really understand that. I can’t imagine making Nate miss a softball game so we could celebrate on the exact date of our anniversary and I also can’t see myself ever feeling disappointed with any gift he would give to me. I’m so blessed to have a loving husband who wants to make sure that I have everything I want, but what he doesn’t realize is that he does that every single day just by being my best friend. Though I will never turn down sushi, frozen yogurt, or flowers! =D And it’s a good thing we went to that softball game because, um, he hit a grand slam! Wouldn’t have missed that for the world!

We snapped the picture above as we left Brittany & CJ’s wedding Saturday night. The fireflies were so pretty and just everywhere – can you spot them whirling around us? Fireflies will always remind me of good things: falling in love, Saves The Day songs, moving to Kentucky, Summer, moving into our brand new house right after we got married – what a fitting image to celebrate 3 years! I love you Nate!
