Our First Wedding Anniversary (Missing You)

Dear Husband,

I know I will shed a little tear as I write this, but it was a year ago today that I married one of my best friends in the entire universe! :)

You have been my rock, even when you were states away for the early months of our newly-wed life together. 

We have missed a lot of "firsts" together as a married couple, including this First Wedding Anniversary (you being away unfortunately for Army Training), but doesn't mean we have missed them all. Our lives have just began! 

I cherish the moments we get to spend together, even if it's only a half hour during the week, thanks to two different work schedules. But spending that 30 minute lunch together is priceless.

But through all of this, you continue to love and support me, and I honestly can not thank you enough! I'm so grateful that God has sent me the best gift I could ever ask for: You.

I. Love. You. (Te Amo) more every day, and those days we spend apart make those together even meaningful.

I look forward to Saturday when you finally come home to me, I miss you mucho. 

Your wife.

  11. Oh wow, it was very inspirational post for me. I had a great time watching these photos. We got married in the last month at destination NYC wedding venues and it was a spectacular event. We will also be celebrating one month anniversary in the next week.
