I’m a little (maybe a lot) late in sharing this, but in celebration of my 2 Year Anniversary, rather than writing a full blog post, I thought I’d share something a little more intimate with you guys…the letter I wrote to my wonderful husband on May 19th, 2014. Two years strong and many more to count!
Two years ago today, we stood before 110 of our closest friends and family, promised each other a lifetime of resilience, happiness, unconditional love, and planned for a future we were determined to make our own. We said “I Do”…and I have loved every moment with you since.
Since our one year anniversary, you and I have purchased our very first home, changed jobs, vacationed to Hawaii for the first time, and even budgeted to plan for a family towards the end of this year. This year, you and I have grown to be “grown-up’s”! I love that we spend every weekend going furniture browsing, flirting with paint colors, making multiple trips to Home Depot and scheduling appointments with various contractors/design studio’s to build our dream home. Funny, you know you’re “married” when you spend your weekends getting excited about going to the nearest home improvement store – funny, but a sweet reality to come to terms with.
Our home is where I look forward to watching you spend whatever remaining life you have as a free man without kids, walk Cotton in our soon-to-be-wonderful-when-we-can-afford-landscaping backyard, invite friends and family over for BBQ and good times, and just love it like a treasure box that will store all our invaluable memories we will create.
You should know, I am proud of you every day. Success does not come handed to anyone on a silver platter. It is earned through hard work, determination, resilience and heart – all of which I see through your eyes every morning we step out that door into reality (Monday – Friday for the most part J).
2 years of marriage, 3 years of dating and 7 years of friendship that led us to where we are today, really makes me look forward to the many more years to come. Perhaps next year, I will write you a letter of how great (or can be better…j/k) of a father you are to our first child. Thank you, for the best 12 years of my life knowing you, dating you, being in engaged to you…and being your wife. We continue to have our little (BIG) battles, annoy the heck out of each other, disagree and challenge one another (primarily my doing), but honestly, that’s just 5% of our entire relationship…keeps it interesting and exciting!
I am so proud of who we are, what we have achieved and have planned for our future as a couple. Thank you for making me yours for a lifetime two years ago today. There may have been 110 people on our wedding day, but in my sight, all I saw was you…as I still do today.
HAPPY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY. I LOVE YOU <3
