To The Love Of My Life: Another Year Passes

A dark blue title box takes up half of the image. In the title box is subtext that reads my vows to you at the top. Under the subtext is the title To The Love Of My Life: Another Year. Under the title box is a bouquet of pink, yellow, and red roses.

Today, November 16, 2019 is our 5 year wedding anniversary. In those years, we’ve lost pregnancies, birthed babies, adopted animals, moved many times, struggled, and thrived. We’ve had our share of losses, but we’ve climbed out of every dark spot together.

We are at a place in our lives where we never thought we’d be this early in our journey together. Blessed doesn’t even describe how my life feels with you. Honestly, I never imagined I’d live to be this age, because of my many struggles. But you always stuck by my side and I by yours.

Thank You For Being You

We aren’t hard to love, but others have thought so. They just weren’t right, because we were always meant for each other. As cheesy as that sounds, I really believe you’re my destiny.

I fought my feelings for you for years, because I feared hurting others. Letting go of those fears and finally putting myself first was the greatest decision. You have made me feel more like myself than I could have ever imagined.

There Are Not Enough Words

There aren’t enough words to express how extremely grateful I am to have you in my life and as the father of our children. Even as a writer, the words escape me when I try to explain how in love I am with you.

You are my best friend, first and foremost, and that is a friendship that has saved my life more times than you know. I finally love who I am, and I appreciate that you’ve stuck by my side while I’ve been on this journey with bulimia recovery.

I Vow

I know we didn’t get to renew our vows like we wanted, but I have vows I want to share with you.

You have been my best friend, confidant, lover, and greatest challenge all at the same time. But most importantly, you are the love of my life. You make me happier than I could ever have imagined and feel more love than I ever thought possible. You know me better than anyone else in this world, but somehow you still manage to love me despite all of my highs and lows.

You are my best friend, my husband, and the father our children. There is still a part of me that can’t believe that I was lucky enough to marry you.

I vow to honor our marriage, and to love you regardless of what is thrown our way. There’s no one I’d rather grow old with, because every moment with you is like magic. I still do, and I always will.

With Love,

Jenn

  5. What a beautiful and truly heartfelt piece. Have you ever heard the Emily Bronte quote from Wuthering Heights β€œWhatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same”. I always felt this accurately described my feelings for my love but with the day to day, had forgotten about this. Thank you for reminding me (we’ve not long had a baby and turned into competitors for sleep it seems 🀣)
    Sending congratulations!!!! πŸ’β€οΈ
