ok i know what you may be thinking...who even tracks this? what is 1000 days of marriage even mean? to be honest, i had NO IDEA we were anywhere near a 1000 days. it was one of those happenstance moments where you randomly open your countdown app & see that you are a couple days shy of 1000 days since your wedding date. super coincidental, i promise! being the nostalgic (insert: & little-to-do-while-on-maternity-leave) person that i am, i figured it would be fun (delicious) to order mini versions of the kara's cupcakes we served at our wedding, customized with this milestone for us to enjoy (& for me to occupy myself with a mini, uneducated photoshoot...remember, maternity leave). then i started thinking, 1000 days of marriage & look how far we've come, solely by the grace of God.
if you know me, you know i like numbers & patterns. so naturally i discovered that we are three months shy of our third anniversary, & we are three weeks shy of the birth of our third family member. also there are three zeroes in 1000. am i trying too hard now? :) one last thing: 2016 = 2+0+1+6 = 9 which is divisible by three. ok i'll stop.
actually, no i won't. here are three things i am thankful to God for in the past 1000 days of marriage...
the past couple of years have been so pivotal & life changing for me. sometimes i feel like i need to take a timeout & reflect on all the blessings God has placed upon my life. He is really good.
i really want to make this year mindfully purposeful so i spent some time last week thinking of what i wanted my "word of the year" (WOTY) to be. i haven't done this in the past, but for some reason i felt the need to do one this year. i simply wrote down the first word that came to mind:
wife to a hoosier
mama to TWO boyS
bay area native
it DATA ANALYST
small shop owner
