We’ve made it one year into our marriage, and I have to tell you how thankful, proud, humbled, and breathtakingly in love with you I have become.
There are not enough words to summarize the year we have had together.
We now know how to put an IKEA bed frame together, grocery shop without arguing, balance your gym routine with my need to say 15,000 words a day, cuddle without making our limbs go numb; pray withholding nothing from one another. We now know how to talk a car dealer down. You have held my heart in all of its delicate pieces, during the most tragic loss I have ever experienced. We spent our first married Thanksgiving in the Emergency room, we’ve spent many evenings up laughing from exhaustion & joy, I’ve still yet to learn to drive a clutch, but I appreciated the one lesson you did give me (BUT DID YOU DIE?), we’ve gone to Disneyland together after many years of saying “one day we will”. You’ve braided my hair, and I’ve shaved your face. We’ve prayed over our finances and have seen God’s provision through and through. You’ve watched the Gilmore Girls with me like a champ! We’ve learned to criticize each other less & embrace each other more. You made me a coconut cream pie from scratch for my birthday (because you are wonderful), and I made you a dozen chocolate cupcakes w/coconut frosting (mostly because I love you but also because I love cake). We’ve sang worship songs throughout our home & we’ve jammed out to Megan Trainor (because we’re all about that bass).
I choose you, and I’ll choose you over & over & over again. Without pause, without doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you. You are all I’ve ever wanted, more than I’ve hoped for, and the best friend a girl could ask for. Wyatt, thank you for being my heart’s song, my steady comfort, my best friend in the universe, and straight up eye candy (insert emoji heart eyes).
I’ll love you forever and forever you’ll see, you are all that I need, so long as there’s you, I’ll be.
