The Move, An Anniversary, and Progress

So we moved to Lakeland and are now slowly unpacking and settling in. This is a picture of us the day before the actual move our on our porch.

After loading and unloading the truck and a weekend to rest a bit Tuesday we went to Disney to celebrate our anniversary. [it's so nice getting in for free!]
Here is us at the beginning of the day with our anniversary pins.

Here we are at the petting zoo at Animal Kingdom...that there is Joe.

Then the next day we had a chill day...then cut the small cake we had like we do every year and this year we smeared it on our faces like the day we got married. =] It was fun, and the cake was yummy!

It's crazy that 3 years has gone by. I look at all that we have gone through and am just so happy that we have had each other through it all. Especially now as we are embarking on a new big adventure, I know there is no one else I would want next to me in this journey called life.
I've been hearing a quote lately that I like a lot, "Love isn't finding someone you can live with, it's finding someone you can't live without." I just love that.

So although my soundtrack of love was not finished I thought I would leave you with a couple more important songs as a wrap up, and in honor of our anniversary.

This song was our first dance as husband and wife. =]

Come Away With Me
by: Norah Jones

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song

Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can't tempt us
With their lies

And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won't you try to come?

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me


This second song, is probably one of my favorites. It was Nathan's ringtone on my phone during our whole engagement, and one of my favorite songs to slow dance and sing to him in the living room by candle light. ::happy sigh::

Love of My Life
by: Brian Mcknight

First, first, time I looked into your eyes
I saw heaven, oh, heaven in your eyes
Everything I did before you, wasn't worth my while
It should've been you all the time
I do anything, and everything to please you
You know how much I need you
You're always, always, on my mind

Chorus:
You're more than wonderful
More than amazing
Irreplaceable, love, love, in my life
You're so incredible, here in these arms tonight
The irreplaceable, love, love, of my life

Always, seems like reality
Forever, don't seem so far away
All I wanna do, all I wanna feel, all I wanna be is close to you
Everyday, in my lucky day
All I wanna do, is love you
I place no one above you
I'll tell you why

Chorus


Baby you now, you know you're my one (and only)
(all I wanna do is be together)
Sugar you know, I'll never leave you lonely
In your eyes, in your eyes I see forever
Ahhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh
Ahhhh, ohhhhhh, ohhhh,


The last one is a more fun song, and we kind of call it our theme song...haha. It's by one of our favorite bands, that we both loved before we even met each other and that's Relient K.

Must of Done Something Right
by Relient K


We should get jerseys cause we make a great team
But yours would look better than mine, cause you're outta my league
And I know that it's so cliche to tell you that everyday
I spend with you is the new best day of my life
Everyone watching us just turns away with disgust
It's Jealously, they can see that we've got it going on


And I'm racking my brain for a new improved way
To let you know your more to me than what I know how to say
You're OK with the way this is going to be
This is going to be the best thing we've ever seen

[Chorus]
If anyone can make me a better person you could
All I gotta say is I musta done something good
I came along one day and you rearranged my life
All I gotta say is I musta done something right
I musta done something right

Maybe I'm just lucky cause it's hard to believe
Believe that somebody like you'd end up with someone like me
And I know that it's so cliche to talk about you this way
But I'll push all my inhibitions aside
It's so very obvious to everyone watching us
That we have got something real good going on

And I'm racking my brain for a new improved way
To let you know your more to me than what I know how to say
You're OK with the way this is going to be
This is going to be the best thing we've ever seen

If anyone can make me a better person you could
All I gotta say is I musta done something good
I came along one day and you rearranged my life
All I gotta say is I musta done something right
I musta done something right


So that's all for now folks. Now just trying to get things organized and settled in, preparing for what's to come. Oh and as a quick brag to everyone about my hubby, he has lost over 30lbs this year...has few pants that fit him and it feeling a lot healthier and looking mighty fine! I've lost about 15lbs [he's been doing more exercising than me] and yesterday I slid a pair of my shorts off without unbuttoning them, what a nice feeling to be fitting into clothes that I did when I got married. Nate has already been fitting into clothes he wore on our honeymoon and they are getting to big on him as well...it is a BIG accomplishment to be getting into shape! Our frig is filled with healthy foods, maybe I'll take a picture so you can see. =] haha Anyway wanted to throw that out there to brag. Here are some pictures so you can see the progress he has made.
Before, at Christmas time: After, half way through July:

Great Job Nate, I'm more proud of you than words!

Blessings to you all.
