We’re celebrating our 3rd anniversary you guys! I can’t even begin to describe how crazy and wonderful these 3 years have been. There have been great times and some hard times, however the good times will always outshine the troubles we’ve endured.
After 4 months of dating we were formally married on July 7th, 2013 in a courthouse. Our love was a thing that couldn’t wait, we were both eager to call each other our own. I wrote a snippet of our love story a few months ago, you can read that HERE.
What is something you learned about each other this year?
Shirri: My eyes were opened tremendously to how much effort he puts towards his work. He’s such a dang hard worker and for that I am so so proud.
Scott: That she doesn’t like the suburbs. Also, how hard she works towards making the most simple life possible.
Something NEW you love about your spouse.
Shirri: How great of a father he is. I always knew just how great he was but now that we have two boys I really admire how he juggles it all. He never misses a beat and both boys think he’s hung the moon.
Scott: The fact that she’s getting out of her shell and becoming more outgoing. She’s more open to doing new things and meeting new people. I’m so proud of all the work she does for her blog. Also, how great of a mother she is to our boys caring for them and nurturing to them at all times of the day.
A habit that is driving you crazy.
Shirri: Oh my gosh.. Okay, when he cuts in line when there’s a lane merge. I can’t help but sink into my seat from embarrassment.
Scott: She feels like she has to get done up for me every single day, when I tell her that she doesn’t need to and that she’s beautiful the way she is.
Something thoughtful they did this year.
Shirri: He’s always so thoughtful but the one that sticks out the most is on Saturday mornings when I wake up to both boys situated and breakfast on the table.
Scott: She loves printing out pictures and giving them to our families rather than keeping them on social media. She always takes care of our boys and gives them a smile every morning no matter if she isn’t feeling good. And how she loves me unconditionally.
A new tradition you’ve started this year.
Shirri: Random road trips. Were trying to be more spontaneous and make fun memories with our boys out on the open road.
Scott: She took my answer.
A major accomplishment of your spouse this year.
Shirri: He’s been moving up at his job so quickly!
Scott: Her blog.
What brought you closer?
Shirri: When we were living in a town that made us so unhappy we really learned how to make our own happiness and appreciate all the good that’s within the walls of our home.
Scott: When life wasn’t going according to “plans” how we both sat down and talked everything out to only make us build an empire in the Stringfellow household. How determined we both are to make the best possible home and environment for our growing boys.
Use 5 words or less to describe you as a couple.
Shirri: Unique, Driven, Responsible, Appreciative, Low-Key
Scott: Entertaining, Spontaneous, Generous, Wholesome, Inseparable
What has surprised you the most about being married?
Shirri: How simple and how challenging it can be all at the same time. Yes, he’s my husband, but he’s also my best friend and I’d be his roomie forever.
Scott: The amount of work that it takes to build a healthy, strong, and everlasting marriage. And yet, how it’s still so easy to forget of all the work needed when were together.
I’d like to thank my hubs for participating with me in this fun questionnaire. I know it’s tough opening up to the blog world but he seriously rocks it and he stands by me no matter what.
3 years down and a lifetime to go. I love you so much babe. Happy Anniversary! xoxo
