It’s been 2 years since I walked down that aisle, toward you to officially be your wife. Two years, can you believe it? Although our first year, was less than wonderful, less than great – it led us to today, and today, I wouldn’t change a thing.
We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together, we’ve fought for and with one another; we’ve worked and we’ve played to be where we are today.
When walking down the aisle 2 years ago, I thought we had it all figured out, we had nearly 4 years experience, there was not a lesson to be learned, we had it figured out. We know everything, or so we thought. But through the last two years we have learned more than we ever thought we could, and this last year has been beautiful, and my love for you has only grown deeper, and stronger, to a level I didn’t know existed.
I have loved, sure. I have been loved by family, by friends, but the truth is, I have never loved like this, or been loved like this. There is no measurement that could capture it, and this time next year I will know a greater capacity of love, as I will every year after that, because when you meet that person that completes your soul – you hold on to them, and when you do that, you experience love and life you never knew existed. That’s exactly what is going on here. A love that only grows with the day, next to you on the good days, and even closer on the bad.
Love isn’t easy, we learned that early on, but something I learn a little bit more every.single.day. is that it’s absolutely worth it. Because there is no one else on this planet that can give me a look, seeing into my heart making me let down my guard only to break into your arms, because that’s where it’s safe. There is no one else that can make me smile and laugh even on the bad days, where I couldn’t want to either any less. No one else knows my likes, my dislikes and my habits the way that you do. No one else that I want to create and raise children with. No one else I look forward to the next sixty + years with.
There is the place in my heart that only you fit into.
Happy Anniversary, to the love of my life, my best friend, and the one that completes me.
