Our anniversary week always makes me sentimental and a little sappy.
In 2007, I was a super sappy bride to be…and quite eloquent, not gonna lie.

Hello My Love,
This is it…the home stretch. February 2007, in 23 days we will be married. I’m really excited!
I mean, there is part of me that feels a little panicky, but mostly about what needs to be done. But everything else in me simply wants to be your wife. I wanted so badly to be able to be there for you today…and yesterday, too…you’ve had such a rough week. I can’t do anything to help.
I’ve decided to send you this book for Valentine’s Day, but really it’s your wedding gift. Ideally I would give this to you the night before our wedding and you would read the whole thing that night. But see, now I know you. You need more time to read this, perhaps, I mean I can always be wrong. But FACT, you are spending the night before our wedding in a room with Paul and Dave and likely won’t wish to read it with an audience. And, I really wanted to give you a great Valentine’s gift, and so here it is. You hold my heart in your hands. I don’t know how you did it, or why you’re the one, but you are my one and only. You are the only one who truly “gets” me…even if you don’t a lot of the time. If nothing else, I am compelled to try harder and push through because of you. I love who I am in your eyes. I believe she is someone that only you know. I’d like to someday feel comfortable in her skin. She’s breathtaking and I’m just me. You are truly the man I have prayed for and cried for and waited for all these years.
February 25th may end up being my favorite day. The first day of many in which I get to wake up in your arms and face the days together. I am so excited to be your wife.
I adore you, my groom.
