Five Down, Forever to Go


Happy anniversary!  Five years ago today, we wed in the church where we first came to know one another.  It was a tearful and joyous event, but it was nothing compared to what would follow.  In the five years since, we’ve experienced the ups and downs of marriage, and the even greater emotional highs and lows of parenthood.

But through it all, you’ve been a constant source of love in my life.  As you used to frequently remind me, I’m blessed to have you.  You’re fiery, funny, kind, devoted, strong, and beautiful.  I don’t deserve you.

These five years have, in the best of ways, felt like much longer than that.  And yet, today is only the beginning of lifelong adventure.  I can’t wait to continue the journey of the rest of our lives.

I love you.


P.S. Today also marks the first anniversary of a certain other couple, who I think will make themselves known on Twitter today.  Congratulations, you two!
