My love, we’ve been married for 4 years!! I have to be honest with you, it feels like so much longer (but in the best way). I used to dream about living an adventurous life … I knew I wanted it, but I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to get there. Now, we’ve made those dreams our reality. I never knew my heart needed it’s other half in order to be fulfilled … you heart is my heart’s other half.
You have taught me so many things in the 7 years we’ve been together, and over the past 4 years it’s been really fun figuring out what marriage is all about. I’m not quite sure how to articulate all of the ways I feel about us, but I do know that I feel like a totally different person from the day we were married. The love I had for you then seems almost silly when compared with the way I feel for you now … and, at that time, I loved you more than I could comprehend. It’s hard to explain … it makes my brain hurt thinking about it, but basically I love you more than I ever knew was possible. I love the way you love me … I love the respect we have for one another, and it’s been fun to grow into real adults together.
Man, life isn’t what I imagined (Helloooo Oregon), but I couldn’t be happier with where we’ve landed. I am proud to call you my partner, and I am so happy you’re the one I get to kiss goodnight. Thank you for loving me unconditionally … Our love IS an adventure, and I’m so glad we get to travel through life together. If I were a betting man, I’d say this next year will be our best yet. I love you so much.
