A Love Letter to My Bride

My Dearest Tiffany,

Happy Anniversary my love! I know this is early, but lets celebrate the entire month! 5 years seems to have gone by so fast and yet and I can't remember what life was like without you. I wish I could express to you how much these 5 years have shaped me in ways I could never have hoped for.

I remember it was almost 5 years ago standing up on the stage with dad waiting for you to be presented to me. I was nervously thinking about how my life was about to change completely without understanding how. You came through the door and I forgot about everything else. You were so radiant from head to toe and I couldn't imagine how my life could be any better.

Now 5 years has passed I can honestly say that I love you more than I did that day. Your beauty hasn't faded in my eyes and my love for you is stronger than when I first said the words "I love you". We have had lots of challenges in those years and may even be going through the hardest challenge now, but what I notice about us is that we continue to intentionally love each other through every mountain and valley. We are about to emerge into perhaps the most freedom we have experienced and every challenge we have gone through is about to become a story of victory for others.We are about to become debt free because you were persistent that we were going to be free no matter the cost to our comfort and lives.

My life is better now because of you. I know I fought you on becoming better in many ways, but you stuck through it. You encouraged me, prodded me when I needed it, allowed your creativity to flow even if I thought it was easier if we did simpler things. You have done so much to help me become the man I am today and I'm so thankful for you.

We are blazing a trail for our beautiful daughter and other children that will hopefully join us soon. I have more hope for our future and am more excited now than ever to love you for the 80 years or so that we get to be married. Writing this I can't help but feel that I have no idea how good life is going to be with you. The best is yet to come.

Happy Anniversary Darling and I love you with all my heart!
