Happy four year anniversary! Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday that we were saying “I do!” but others it feels like the time flew by. Four years ago today, we were procrastinating like we do on last-minute details the morning of the wedding, I had some nerves mostly about all the attention I was going to get (you know how much I hate attention lol) but when we had our first look I forgot about all the things that needed to get done for the wedding and just relaxed. At that moment nothing else mattered because I was going to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. I have so many great memories from our wedding day – getting ready with my girls, jumping on the bed with my sister in excitement, our first look, feeling so in love with our venue, the feeling that it was official, I could go on and on because there were so many laughs, lots of happy tears and time with all of our loved ones. I often think I’d love to go back and do it again but then I remember we still have so much life left to live and so much more in store, I’m just happy I get to live it with you.
The last four years have been eventful, to say the least. Four years ago, I didn’t think we’d be where we are now. At the time I didn’t know we’d move to the Bay Area but I really had never imagined being back in Sacramento. Life has certainly thrown us some curveballs, yet we’ve been able to celebrate the highs and push through the lows. I can’t say it’s been an easy four years but I’m thankful you’re by my side lifting me up when I let life get the best of me. Your ability to stay positive in even the toughest times and to encourage me even when I don’t want to be pushed to do things has helped keep me on track and I thank you for helping me to keep our lives moving in the right direction.
I don’t tell you this as often as I should but I love being your wife even when you are getting on my last nerve or when I tell you I need my space. Thank you for accepting me, flaws and all. I also don’t tell you enough that I’m proud to be your wife. When I met you those 20+ years ago I had no idea the boy I met at the movie theatre would be my husband. You’ve had quite the journey from that point in your life and I’m so proud of the man you’ve become since then.
Although this current phase of life scares me a lot and it’s been a rough few months adjusting, I have the utmost confidence in your ability to succeed at whatever you set your mind to. I support you and know this–even if things don’t go as planned I’ll be by your side to weather the storms. I love you so much and I’m so thankful you chose me to live the rest of your life with.
P.S. Thanks for putting up with me when I’m hangry and for always being down to try new things even when it’s not your idea of fun.
