S: Year Three
FC: Better Together
2: Sometimes I can hardly believe we have been married three years, but when I look at all the memories we have made in our time together it seems like a lot longer than that. When I look back at the people we were when we got married, I see how much we've grown \individually and as a couple, and how much our love for each other has grown. We have been in Colorado for more than a year now and it feels so good to be a little settled. We look forward to being here a couple more years and enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains. This year has been full of fun adventures and really learning to cherish the time that we have together. We look forward to this next year and all the adventures that it may bring.

7: We love Riviera Maya, Mexico. We love the weather, friendly locals and culture. It was our first time back to Mexico since our wedding and we loved exploring a new part of the country. Our resort was nothing short of spectacular. From our room, to the pools, to the food, to the amazing views, we couldn't have asked for anything better. We stayed at Secrets Silversands and we can't wait to stay at Secrets in the future. We loved spending quality time together lounging at the pool, exploring Playa Del Carmen and eating amazing meals everyday. We had such an incredible vacation and we can hardly wait to go back.

37: Exploring Vail Village
38: On the day of our anniversary we went on a morning hike. We were walking along the trail for a while, but once we saw a waterfall up on the mountain we could not resist hiking up to it. The path was really steep, but it was worth it once we got up there. It was so beautiful. After our hike we headed into town to explore the farmers market. After eating some barbeque and watching a pig race we decided to cool off at the pool. Later that day we looked around the shops and ate a late dinner. We had a wonderful anniversary weekend and had so much fun spending some good quality time together.
