The second wouldn't be as good without the first. And the fiftieth will only be as celebratory as the forty-nine it took to get there. As with every year, we look back and can't believe the chapters it holds. We have endless things to be thankful for.... starting with each other. The years are going by faster and faster and it's days like today that we are reminded to slow down, breath deeply, take it in and acknowledge all of the things we don't deserve and are so very lucky to have. This love is bigger than us. (cue my sloppy sniffles and watery eyes here)
E - Thank you for loving me, leading me, being patient with me, calming my type-a tendencies, nurturing my haphazard craftiness, cooking breakfast every morning, holding my hand, letting me shamlessly control the Netflix account, cheering me on and reminding me daily that there is nothing we can't do.... together.
You are an incredible man. Still not sure how I tricked you into marrying me. You're way too good for me. And for that, I love you.
