lot can happen in five years, like job changes, careers, fights,
breakups, makeups and more. We've been through all that and then some.
All of it together.
although we may have not been the other's first and only, I feel so
lucky to have met you at all, let alone being able to celebrate five
years together today.
met when we were just teenagers working at a movie theater. Back then I
never would have imagined that we would end up planning our wedding
together. But since then we've rode through so many highs and lows
side-by-side that it only makes sense. We're meant to be together. The
fact that we made it through it all, even a rough breakup somewhere in
the middle, shows our commitment to each other. I really believe that.
we finished high school and college, found our way in and out of jobs
and into careers. We've created bonds to each other's family and have
pretty much created our own, thanks to our little fur babies. I'm so
ridiculously happy with you.
years may seem like a long time, but I look forward to ten. Twenty.
Fifty. Fifty years! I'm so excited for more triumphs. I'm even excited
for the challenges. I know the challenges make us stronger in the end,
and there's no one I'd rather tackle them with. Whether it's the little
things, like your snores waking me up, or the big, scary things we
haven't faced yet, I know we can get through it all together.
taught me a lot about myself and have made me a better person for it.
Growing up with you around is nice; maybe someday you'll remember things
about me I never would have. I'm glad we'll have all that to share. I
think it'll be a good story for our future children, too.
know I've said it before, but I really hope we continue to grow and
develop a relationship like that of my role models, my parents. I think
we're getting there. We share a lot of qualities with their
relationship, like total comfort around each other and the fierce desire
to always stand by that person and offer him or her support in whatever
they do. I want to pass those qualities on to our family, too.
just wanted you to know how much I love you and how excited I am for
the rest of our lives. Every day is a little sweeter and every challenge
is a little bit easier with you by my side. Thank you for everything
you do and everything you are.
Happy anniversary, my love.
