The Anniversary That Almost Never Was

March 24th. In one week's time, Chris and I will have been together for three years.

This is a huge deal considering we almost didn't make it. Two months ago I scrubbed the date from my phone's calendar. I thought it would be a day I would end up despising and probably crying on, but now I look forward to it with joy. There are so many things that I thought I'd never do again. Like go to Santa Barbara.

Chris and I went to Santa Barbara last weekend and I had a blast. We spent part of the day in Camarillo and then headed out to Santa Barbara for a date. We went to, what I like to call, our restaurant, Endless Summer Bar-Cafe. And as we were looking for a parking spot I started thinking about how really amazing it was. I had written off Santa Barbara; convinced myself I would never go back there, and there I was. With him. I just got a huge smile on my face. All that I was convinced I'd lost was back. I think that's when it really sunk in.

We ate at the cafe, walked to the break water, then went to this amazing park. It was so beautiful, but don't ask me to remember the name, because I haven't been able to yet, haha. (Hey, Google is my best friend- Elings Park). It had four different levels. The first was dedicated to BMX, the second was baseball fields, and the third was soccer fields. The fourth level is a beautiful area with tables, an amphitheater, and various benches strewn throughout. It was so beautifully landscaped! Near the end of our walk we found a nice grassy spot in the sun and just laid down in it (check out my best friend Google's map of it here!).

Bangs and wind don't really mix well... lol
I hadn't realized how much I missed Santa Barbara, but it really wouldn't be the same without him. In eight days I will have been with the love of my life for 3 years (give or take a month and a half). This anniversary is special. Not only because it's our first 3 year anniversary ;P but because this is the one that almost didn't happen. I treasure every day that I get to hold him in my arms. He's the best thing that's ever been mine.

I love you Chris Vega. Always and forever.
