Two years! I do believe some high-fives will be in order on Sunday.
& just for nostalgia's sake, I'll post a little somethin'-somethin' from our wedding. Before we exchanged vows, rings, and a scandalous smooch, we read our hand-written "this-is-why-you're-awesome-and-why-I'm-puttin'-a-ring-on-it" looove letters. Someday I'm going to have to post the video of us reading this to each other, with all the giggles and sniffles, but for now, have fun reading!
Jason's went a little something like this:
I marry you because you are now part of my life. In all decisions, you are a consideration. In all joy, you are sharing. In all sorrow, support. I look forward to calling you my wife, mother of my children, and my lover.
I admire your love for learning, no matter what topic;
I admire your love for life, no matter how small that life is;
I admire how you understand others' situations, even if you disagree with them.
I love how you turn nature into a storybook-- with dialogue-- whenever we go on walks.
And most of all, I love how I've never gotten along with anyone as well as I've gotten along with you.
I want to grow old and gray with you, experiencing life with you by my side.
And mine went a little something like this:
Beginning today and lasting my lifetime, I'm choosing my husband, my sidekick, my devil's advocate, the father of my children, my cheerleader, coach, and teammate. And although huge decisions usually freeze me up, you've made this one pretty effortless:
Because your love of life and curiosity inspires everyone around you, like a big happy puppy. Except a really smart one.
Because you're always working to make yourself better, like when you stay up late on homework you've assigned yourself.
Because you put up with my quirks... like putting your toothbrush on the same side of the sink as mine, so they can be friends.
Because even after six years, I keep realizing you're even better looking than I first thought.
Because you help me see what's best for me, and sometimes I resist even though I know you're right. Even then, you don't give up. Your patience and love amazes me.
Because even though you make me feel on top of the world, you still ask me if you treat me well enough.
Thanks for making my biggest decision the easiest. We're going to take good care of each other.
Happy July 10th, Handsome Hubster. High five!
