I walked down the aisle to the sound of trumpets; it was gorgeous. At the end of my journey, you were there waiting for me with a half-smile-half teary-eyed look.
Today marks 8 years as your wifey. That's so weird to me- mainly because after 8 years of marriage and 15 years together, it's still just "us." I never it thought it would still be just me and you babe, but I'm so thankful it has been all these years.
This year we decided to buy a mutual gift for our anniversary; probably an iPad or maybe a trip over the Christmas break- we aren't sure yet, but one thing I know for sure is how much a gift you've been to me babe.
You've loved me when we first met
You've loved me when I was unhealthy
You've loved me when I was thin
You've loved me as a young man
And you love me now as a grown
You've loved me when I'm fancy
And you've loved me when I'm down
You've loved me when I felt unloveable
And when when I feel unstoppable
You loved me no matter my decisions
And when I couldn't make one (especially about where to eat dinner)
You loved me when we lived in our hometown
And when we moved far away
You loved me when we tried for a baby
And when I gave it up
You loved me through pain and heartache
And you've loved me through tough love
You have loved me all these years and no matter what's going on, on the outside the one thing that's remained the same
is how you look at WE and I see how wonderfully lucky I really am- if it is just you and me.
I love you...
