I have made it a tradition every year to make a photo book of the previous year of marriage. Now that it's our anniversary, I can start making our "Year 3" book! Since we are such big picture takers, I felt like we had all these pictures, but needed a way to condense them and display them without having them everywhere in our home. A photo book became a great way to actually use our pictures and for us to keep track of the memories we make together.
Along with pictures from weddings, birthdays, showers, parties, vacations etc... my favorite part of the book is the "Highlights" sections. Its the place where I make a list of events from the year, some being more significant than others obviously, but things I want to remember nonetheless. I thought I would share some of these highlights from our 3rd year of marriage:
We became an Aunt and Uncle! Welcome baby Max!
We took a gun safety class
Michael and I ran the County Fair 5K Road Run
We started looking for a house
We had various friends come for visits
We started leading a small group
We took a family vacation to Aruba
We got to visit our friend Peter at medschool where he took us to see the cadavers
We bought a house
We started renovating our house
Michael's sister graduated from college
We started a blog :-)
We lived it up in Chicago with the Benders
I will likely add some more highlights to the list, but those are the ones I chose to share today. Michael and I have been soooo blessed this last year. We are so thankful for our family, friends, jobs, and most of all, each other. Can't wait to see what highlights will come for year 4!
