Happy 10 Year Anniversary My Love!

10 years ago today I married my wonderful husband, My Love. 

It was a beautiful day spent with family and friends. We were married in beautiful sunken gardens surrounded with Grecian columns. We were so young and naive. I was not nervous, I was excited, I was ready. Our families were amazing and helpful. There was no drama, there was drinking, dancing, and celebrations. Your family showed mine how to peel a shrimp without making a mess of themselves and a good time was had by all.  Our wedding was everything I had dreamed about, and my groom was more than I had ever could have dreamed for. 

So, today, we are celebrating 10 years since the day of our wedding, but our life together is so much more than the anniversary of 1 day.

You are working today and will not be home but that is ok. You don’t have to be here for me to know how much you love me and I love you.

I know it sounds corny, but I love you more now than I did the day we got married. I love you more all the time.

We fit so well together.

Has it always been a smooth, perfect road, no…it’s a marriage, not a fairy tale, but we so rarely even argue, even in the toughest times.

I love our history together, knowing what we have made it through only makes us stronger.

You know me better than I know myself sometimes, you know my deepest, darkest secrets and treat them like they are your own, you know my biggest dreams and worst fears and respect them for what they are.

You do everything within your power to keep me happy and healthy, even if it means a kiss, flowers, or just to be left alone.

You take care of me when I am sick and hold me when I am tired. 

You know the things that are important to me and know what I am interested in.

You listen while I talk, and talk while I listen.

You take me on dates, both fun & serious ones.

You still open doors for me.

You cuddle with me.

You compliment me. 

I love that you surprise me with flowers all the time.

I love how caring and kind you can be.

I love that we share a beautiful daughter and I love what a great father you are.

It’s been 10 years of a wonderful marriage and I look forward to the next 1, 5, 10, 20, and more!

I love you.

With my whole heart,



  1. 10 years! That is gorgeous...and I wish many many many more anniversaries to come!
