Four years

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

To my husband on our four year wedding anniversary:

Thank you for being supportive when I decided not to change my name.  I know it was something you really wanted and I am still so grateful that you understood my point of view.

Thank you for indulging my curiosity when I ask far too many questions about your day and conversations you had with other people.

Thank you for constantly inspiring me to set personal goals and working hard to achieve them.

Thank you for comforting me when I've had a hard day, week, or month.  

Thank you for always making me laugh.

Thank you for convincing me to start using the dishwasher.

Thank you for understanding that some things, like expensive exercise dvds, are just really important to me.

Thank you for always telling me about your day, showing me what you're working on, and sharing your dreams with me.

Thank you for balancing my extreme tardiness with your extreme timeliness.

Thank you for constantly teaching me new things.

Thank you for being vegan.

Thank you for letting me take really long naps on Sunday.

Thank you for always telling me I'm a "pro".

Thank you for giving me my laptop three Christmases ago, and saying, "Now you can start your blog!"

Thank you for always being on my side and sticking up for me.

Thank you for always viewing things with a skeptical and critical eye, and pointing out the not obvious.

Thank you for never losing your temper.

Thank you for always keeping it real and for always being honest with me.

Thank you for being my best friend.

Thank you for dealing with me when I've gotten far too hungry and become a crazed lunatic.

Thank you for always being so supportive of my dreams.

Thank you for letting me call you "baby angel" in front of other people.

Thank you for the best four years of my life.  I love you more than any words I could write or any present could convey.  I'm so grateful to be on this journey with you and am excited for what our future holds.  You are my favorite person.


  1. Awww! I love this! He sounds amazing and you two sound amazing together :)

  2. So beautiful! I'm so glad you found and married your best friend. Also that dress is gorgeous. I kept my name too which j totally understood but was hard for his family.

  3. What a beautiful thank you message! Little tear in my eye here...
    You're definitely both very lucky to have each other.

  4. What a beautiful post :) And an even more beautiful bride!

  5. So sweet! You almost made me cry. Happy Anniversary!

  6. Happy anniversary! Has it really been that long? What a beautiful letter to your husband.

  7. Happy anniversary! Your love shine through in these stunning pictures, especially in the first one <3

  8. This is so beautiful. Happy anniversary!

  9. Oh happy day to you both! Your letter to Davy had me welling up, but then I had a little giggle when I got to the baby angel line - because I pictured the look I would get if I called Mark that. (Yet I totally call him sugar plum in public and he doesn't flinch.)

  10. How sweet you are. All very good things to be thankful for. I laughed out loud when I got to the 'crazed lunatic' one.

  11. What a beautiful and heartfelt port- your a seriously the cutest!
