It's been 5 years since we tied the knot. In a way I feel like it was just yesterday that we said "I do" but it also seems like I've known you for my whole life. In 5 years we've lived in 4 different homes and two different states, had two kids, met new friends, lost people we loved, experienced professional challenges, found our church family, grew deeper in our relationship with God, and laughed and loved through all of it! I love you as my husband but more than that I love you as the father of my children. I remember when a cute young couple lived next door to us when I was growing up and telling my mom how much fun I thought it would be to always have a friend to live with you. Now I am lucky enough to experience that first hand- and it is fun! Thanks for letting me be myself and for loving every part of me (even the part that folds the laundry and doesn't put it away).
