Today, Charlie and I celebrate one year of being married. One year!
The fact that we have already spent 365 days as husband and wife is crazy–it brings tears to my eyes and makes me so thankful that the Lord saw fit for us to have this time together.
I remember the first time I saw you. I remember what you were wearing, how your hair looked, how nice you were. I don’t remember the words I said to you! I remember just looking at you from a distance and thinking “wow, who’s is that, he is so tall & so handsome”, I don’t remember the words I said to you but I remember the way you made me feel. I had a crush on you from the very beginning. 3 years ago, you stole my heart I didn’t even realize it. I remember the first time I realized I was in love with you. We went to the park, you were playing your guitar & the sun was going down. I looked at you and I knew that I was so in love with you, I looked at your eyes and saw the love your have for your family & the compassion you have in your eyes.
I’ve been your wife, your partner, your confidant, your accomplice for a whole year now. I still look over at you, see the wedding band on your finger, and fall a little more in love; and in that moment, I’m so happy that I get to do life with you, with my best friend. A year of joy, lots of nights of laughter until we cry, inside jokes that make no sense, and more happiness that cant be measured. A year of adventure, of celebration, of soaking in life and thanking God for every step along the way. My fairy-tale loving self has learned that love doesn’t have to be a grand gesture to be romantic. It doesn’t have to be roses and candlelight and poems in order to sweep me off my feet and make me feel treasured. I’ve learned that you doing the dishes or getting the groceries is what makes my heart go pitter-patter, and I don’t hate it one bit. You love me well.
We have a long life ahead of us and I can’t wait to do it and experience the world all by your side. Hopefully with a few babies added to the mix. Thank you for stealing my heart!
