I can’t believe it has been 11 years of marriage. We’re getting old! And this year marks the year that we’ve spent more than half our lives together. We’ve got a beautiful small child, and two adorable kitties. And a wonderful future ahead of all of us.
We’ve checked off the standard list of accomplishments and accouterments together: education, jobs, cars, house, steady retirement savings. We’ve got dreams for the future. But even without any of those life would still be wonderful because together we can accomplish anything.
We’ve been poor, we’ve been stressed, we’ve been through heart-break and celebration. You’ve been my rock and help-meet and partner through it all.
We can finish each other’s sentences, but even still surprise each other with new ideas, new thoughts, new ways to grow. Even terrible new puns. You calm me when I’m irritated and feed me when I’m hypoglycemic. You help me find rational solutions to any kind of problem. I’m never afraid when you’re there to help me. I trust you with anything and know that you will always take care of me, just like I will always take care of you. You make me a better person. And more than that, you make me happy.
Every single day I think about how blessed I am to have found you. Happy Anniversary!
