An Anniversary Love Letter {One Year Later}.

Dear B,

I can't believe I am saying this already, but, I am. Happy Anniversary, honey. We have now been married for a whole year. On our wedding day, this milestone seemed so far away. I thought it would never get here. But it's here. And it came fast. Just look how times flies. We are no longer newlyweds, in the traditional sense of the term. We are now just an old married couple. For real.

And I love it.

I love waking up next to your handsome (snoring) face each day. I love falling asleep beside you each night. I love crashing on the couch with you after a long day. I love sneaking sweets with you, when we both know we shouldn't be, but are anyways. I love knowing that I can be myself around you. And I love knowing that you are yourself around me. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love your kind eyes. I love your big hands and feet. I love your unruly, ungodly thick hair (and hope our children get it one day). I love your tendency to misspell and mispronounce certain words. I love the look you get on your face when you concentrate. I love the way your bottom lip pokes out when you think too hard. I love the high-pitched laugh you burst out only while watching tv. I love your tendency to have no patience, as neither of us can claim this trait.

Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for being my rock. Thank you for being my biggest supporter and most constant fan. Thank you for working so hard for our family. Thank you for spoiling me. Thank you for making my world a better place. Thank you for being you. 

The best thing I ever did was marry you. I will never regret it. I can't wait to see what the next year holds for us. We have been so blessed in the past year, I can't imagine it being any better - but somehow it always is. 

I just have one question. Can we still call ourselves newlyweds?

*As a side note, as much as I love sharing personal experiences and thoughts with you all, blogger friends please know: this is not my actual anniversary card. I do have a private one I intend to bestow on the well-deserved honey husband. I just liked the idea of sharing a letter-style post to celebrate this milestone!


  1. I can not share at this moment....tears, tears, and so many more tears...AGAIN!!!!!!!

    Love the letter and thank you for being you and loving my son! Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter to me!

    Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your lives together; there is nothing like it to have your best friend as your husband!

    Happy Anniversary!
    Huges and Kisses

  7. I have a new blog titled Romancing Your Home - The purpose is to aid those less romantic husbands with romancing their wife (second duty aside from loving the Lord Jesus.

    How do you get others to read your blog. I hate to be posting only for myself and my wife. Just curious about your experience.

    By blog is your advice is also quite welcomed
