Three might be my lucky number.

It took us three years to get married (after the engagement. Eight years total if we are being technical).  Three years to get our footing, financially and professionally. Three years to find our little lot of land in Chatham County. Three years to save up the money to build our home.

Today is our three year anniversary of moving in so I can’t help but think today might be a lucky day.

Our house has become the epicenter of our world. In and around it, we’ve celebrated all of the special moments life gives us.

We’ve had the support of our families:

And, friends too:

We’ve mingled with the natives:

The tiniest, pinkest, most adorable gun-slingin’ natives this side of the Mississippi

We’ve found beautiful places:

And quietly creepy moments resting in the beauty:

Kill Shelter?

We’ve had some pretty special guests:

Some more special than others

We’ve watched the sunlight fighting its way free of the clouds:

Because it rains every day here

And, a blue moon rising:

The day Neil Armstrong died

Weird things have happened:

Like the time I got trapped in the car wash

And, we’ve done foolishly fun things:

Tell me you love that sash!

We’ve run around a little:

And, watched it snow:

We’ve relaxed by the fire:

Gone for long walks:

Adorable to the 900th degree

And, we’ve put down roots:

The rock that almost broke 3 backs, 5 drill bits and a tractor

We’ve lit fires:

And, found critters:

We’ve worked really hard:

I suppose some have worked harder than others…

We’ve gone very far away:

Dún Laoghaire, Ireland

But, we always find our way back home.
