It’s crazy to think on this day we have been married for 8 years and together for 11.
3 kids deep and one in progress...
“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”
I feel like this quote fits us perfectly. We’ve never been the couple to “Wait till we’re ready” I mean we got engaged when you were 19 and I was a fresh 21. We just DO and don’t look back and it just works and if it doesn’t we just adjust.
I love it.
I’ve always laughed at how opposite we are like you like to eat warm tuna and I like tuna but just normal temp. You sleep sitting up and I sleep laying down. You like to read brail because its challenging and I like to just use my eyes. You whisper in your sleep and I just sleep quiet.
We’re so different.
But as I’m getting older I’m starting to see things clearer. You’ve always been my missing half. Life now has just gotten dramatically better ever since we started dating. We just get better and better at being one. I’m only complete when I’m doing life with you.
Our opposites work because when we are together they fit together perfectly.
Where I’m weak you’re strong and where I’m strong you’re stronger.
Remember that time I was chaffing and I used Vaseline to ease the pain and it wouldn’t wash off my hands and there were no towels in our apartment bathroom and I had locked the door and got super dehydrated because I had just at a pack of crackers and salt doesn’t sit well with me. I was in there for hours I thought I was going to die. Every time I tried to call you from my phone it would slip out of my fingers because of the Vaseline. I kept yelling for you and finally you came home and you couldn’t find the tiny key that goes in the tiny hole and so you just kicked the door open.
You saved me.
You’ve always been so much stronger than me.
You’ll be at the gym feeling sick and preggo doing weighted pull ups. When I’m feeling sick I’m in the bed room figuring out who I’m going to give my pokemon card collection to when I die.
You’ve always inspired me in every area of my life. Im a better man now than I ever was and I’m so grateful for that.
Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating at life. Like I’m just living a dream and someones about to dump warm water on my chesticles and wake me up.
Remember when we were just dating and you would always pinch me?
You know I bruise easy.
Or the first dinner I made you when we were dating?
Orange chicken with a Twice Baked Potato and Cheese cake. I think that was the first time you realized how amazing I was.
You’ve always loved me for who I am. You’ve always let me fully be me. The more I’m myself the more I feel like you fall in love with me.
I’m a lucky man.
I should start a podcast on what its like to marry up. I’d have content for years.
Thank you for always supporting me and loving me as who I am. I’m excited for life ahead of us. I’m excited to Level up our marriage game. I’m excited for the challenges were going to face because I know it’s going to only make us stronger and I’m trying to be a beast.
So let’s continue keep “Doing” and not wait until the “Right” time and keep living for this moment and the time we have together “Now” because life is short and I wanna look back knowing we gave it everything and nothing was left behind.
So I’m going to keep loving you.
Showing you off.
Supporting your goals and your dreams.
Making you warm tuna.
Watching you read in brail.
Listening to you.
Always assuming the best.
And you’re just going to have to deal with it because I’m madly in love with you.
Cheers to 8 years.
The party is just getting started…
TO BE CONTINUED…..
