In the words of our first dance song, “have I told you lately that I love you”? I know I tell you this everyday and often, but have I ever broke it down for you?
Remember, three years ago today, you were at the altar waiting for me? I was in my white dress trying not to cry as my dad tried sharing some words of wisdom.
We were about to say our vows surrounded by loved ones, taking the next steps towards our future.
Little did we know, our lives as newlyweds would be short lived because we were going to be parents before our first wedding anniversary!
When we found out we were expecting, you were calm and collected. I was worried and anxious. But, with one thing for sure, we knew we could handle this parenting thing together.
Let Me Tell You Why
You are the calm to my crazy. You keep me grounded and lift my spirits up. You value my opinion and respect my decisions. Our beliefs are the same and will continue to be top priority while raising our son.
Now Let Me Tell You This
It is the biggest compliment when someone tells us how they view our relationship. Our loved ones view us as respectful, kind, and dedicated. They view us as the perfect match.
When our friends and family tell us these things, we ultimately blush and say thank you. But, what I really want to say is “thank you for noticing how important our marriage is to the both of us.”
Now, I am not bragging and saying our marriage is perfect, because perfection in marriage does not exist. However, our marriage is easy. Or maybe it is not easy and we just don’t recognize our own efforts.
I believe it is easy because we are friends, best friends. We are team mates and in this life together. We have mutual respect for one another. Our values and beliefs are the same which these make us a power couple. We are a power couple because we stick together, through the good and the bad, for better or for worse.
You are my person.
So on our anniversary I want to say thank you. Thank you for picking me to be your wife. Thank you for always lending a helping hand with bath time, bed time, diaper changes, sleepless nights, and early mornings. Thank you for handling the terrible two tantrums, sick baby snuggles, doctors visits, and first time proud parent moments.
I am excited to continue to build our lives together. I am grateful to have you as a husband. I fall more in love with you when you are being a father. I cannot wait to create many more moments with you.
