…I want to live a life full of the kind of love and laughter that makes strangers stop and stare.
One year ago I spent the day surrounded by everyone I love. I wore two white dresses. I danced the night away. I laughed, I cried.
I married my best friend.
Have there been tough days? yes.
Is our marriage perfect? no.
Was it the best decision I have ever made? absolutely.
I love you. I love how you love me. How you show me what passion looks like. How you teach me to be adventurous and to not sweat the small things. I love how you have always pushed me in the direction of my dreams, never doubting my abilities. I was whole before I married you– but I know myself a lot better now.
Being your wife has helped me to grow more into the woman that God wants me to be.
I wouldn’t trade a minute of the past year for anything. Thank you for choosing me.
Remember when we picked up my Nana from the train station a couple of years ago and we asked her how many years she was married to my grandfather and her response
“not long enough…”
That’s how I feel about you, about us. Forever isn’t long enough.
