It's Our Anniversary

Wow, I can't believe that Corey and I have been married for 3 years now. That may not seem like long to some but we are thankful we have made it this far. We take each day at a time and NEVER take one another for granted. We disagree but NEVER go to bed angry. And we NEVER go a day with out talking or saying I love you. I wake up every day with joy in my heart knowing that no matter what happens, he and I will get through it together.

Now that the water works have started I have to tell you a funny story about when I was making my anniversary dress. Back story: We had a destination wedding in Key West but we still managed to keep some traditional aspects including not seeing one another before the ceremony. Despite my wedding dress being in our apartment for almost 8 months, he never saw it (that I know of) until I was walking down the aisle. The past couple of years I have made a dress to wear to our anniversary dinner as well as my birthday (since that's when he proposed) and this year was no different. I came home one night and he was still on a conference call so I took the opportunity to run upstairs and work on my dress for a few minutes. I could hear him coming up the stairs so I met him at my studio door to see what was going on. He was trying his hardest to see what my dress looked like.
So each night when I finished working I literally had to hide my dress in a different spot. I can't for the life of me figure out why he couldn't wait a few more days to see the dress. At any rate I let him see it on my dress form this morning and he was very excited. In his words, "Um um uh, I can't wait to see the Silky Dress on Wife."

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

That was a very sweet story. Thanks for sharing. I am recently married and I too kept my dress a secret. Although my husband did pick out the pattern he thought I was going to be wearing a short version. When he saw me walking down the aisle, he later told me that I looked beautiful. Gotta love him. Enjoy your anniversary and I hope you have many more.
