Two Years Ago Today....


Two years ago today began my happily ever after.


Two years ago today, I walked down the aisle toward my future.


Two years ago today, I said “I do” to commitment, faithfulness, family, charity, devotion, better or worse, sickness and health, and most importantly, an undying love for a man I can’t live without.


Two years ago today, I was blessed with the greatest earthly gift I have received thus far in my life – my strong, capable, adoring, nurturing, funny, talented, handsome, loving husband – my best friend.


Two years ago today, I looked into the eyes of the man that I love and prayed that this would never end.  Prayed that no matter what happens - we will always have each other.  Prayed that our love will survive.  Two years later, I know that it will.




I truly cannot believe how quickly the past two years have passed. I didn’t think it would ever be possible to love you more than I did on the day we said, “I do” – but somehow, I know that my love for you is stronger than it has ever been. There is no doubt that my love for you and commitment to you will only grow stronger with each passing year.


One day, we will sit on a front porch swing together, reading our books and reminiscing about these years – these precious years when it was just the two of us. Before the babies, grandbabies and lifetime careers – when all that mattered was just us. I dream about that moment, I look forward to that moment – because that moment will mean I have spent a lifetime with my best friend and that is the greatest blessing I can imagine.



I never imagined how blessed our marriage would be. I never thought I could feel so genuinely happy and content. I cherish the moments we have together now and look forward to the next chapter of our life together – to starting a family and raising them in a Christ centered home. I know that my purpose in life is to be your wife and the mother of your children. You are my destiny.


Happy Anniversary Steven. Thank-you for loving me unconditionally even when I deserve it the least. Thank-you for believing in me, in us, when I cannot find the courage. Thank-you all the ways you make life better each and every day. Thank-you for being God’s best for me. I love you.

Happy Anniversary my dear! It's Andrea's 2 yr. anniversary today too (LifeinDawleywood) crazy that you guys got married on the very same day! So, I know you're apart - but do you have plans to celebrate (or did you already before you left)? I'm working on plans for mine next month and am collecting ideas...
