7 years as Husband and Wife

Today Chris and I celebrate 7 years of marriage…. we’ve added another year to our love story. The time seems to be just speeding by and the bad days blur into the good ones and another week, month and year go by. But each day I am grateful to this man who picked me to share his life with. And every day I pick him over again. I am happy to choose him as my best friend, my support system and my husband. Still humbled that he chooses me too.

I just want to take this chance to tell him thank you. For trying so hard to really know the real me and love me for who I am. For struggling with me as a team through the hard parts. For doing his best to be my husband. I am so happy by his side…sharing life with him means everything to me.

We have come so far in 7 years together… learning and growing and changing and succeeding and making mistakes and trying again. But the most important thing is that we’re doing it together. That’s the best part…having his hand close by to hold in many different ways: to support, being playful, in prayer, on road trips, while falling asleep, while surrounded by people and while we’re alone, in contentment and in struggle. But always there. I am so in love with this man.

I love you to life, Chris.
