Three Years

On April 8th, Eric and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary. As a reminder of the Rose Ceremony that was a part of our vows, Eric brings me a single white rose each year. It is a renewed promise to each other.

Renewed Promise

Eric made a wonderful dinner for us that evening, as our anniversary fell on a Wednesday this year. I gave him the gift I had picked out for him after we finished our meal.


The traditional third year gift is leather, so I gave him a leather-bound Family History journal. Eric has been researching his family history and genealogy, over the past three years. In generations past, many families recorded their history in a family Bible. They jotted down births and deaths, marriages and other information just inside the cover. We do not have a family Bible, so I thought this Family History journal would be an excellent way for us to record that important information as we begin our own family.

And of course, Eric can’t just bring home one rose…

He also surprised me with a day trip, which unfortunately had to be postponed a couple of weeks. We were able to get out of the city finally, and I can’t wait to share the photos of our adventure. Until next time…
