Five Years

On October 2, 2010 I married my best friend.  It has been quite the five years.  I could not have imagined the highs or lows that we have experienced in our short marriage.  I am thankful to have my amazing husband in my life.  Here are a few reasons why I love being married to my Hubby:

1.)  He is kind and considerate.  He truly looks out for me and goes out of his way to make my life easier.  I don't know if he realizes how much those small acts of service mean to me.  I really appreciate them.

2.)  He has been my rock.  In the past few years we have had rough times with our infertility, our traumatic birth experience and other difficult moments.  He stands beside me through it all, sometimes holding me up.  Lately, we have been struggling through infertility again and fertility treatments.  We have had difficult outcomes that have been heartbreaking to us.  My husband is my strength and comfort.  I am so very thankful for him.

3.)  We laugh together.  When we were first together, our senses of humor didn't always mesh.  We had a few things in common, but often the things that made one of us bust out in laughter, barely earned a smirk from the other.  I feel like over the past five years, our two distinct senses of humor have melded together to make one (strange) sense of humor.  We laugh a lot and I am enjoying this new(er) aspect of our marriage.

4.)  We make a great team.  My husband and I have complementary personalities.  Where he is strong, I am weak and vice versa.  My husband is calm, happy and optimistic.  He helps me pull out of my anxiety and gets me to see the positive.  I am plan and goal oriented.  I have helped motivate my husband through his schooling and training.  We balance each other out.  It truly is a match made in Heaven.

5.)  He is an amazing man.  He is intelligent, kind, hard-working, loving, funny and he never ceases to amaze me.  He means so many things to many people.  He is my partner, my best friend and my awesome husband.  I thank God every day that I get to walk through this life with him.

Happy fifth anniversary, honey!  I look forward to walking through many more years and experiences with you, my dear Hubby.  Love you to the moon and back.


  1. Happy Anniversary. What a lovely and heartfelt honor to your husband. Many more years to celebrate wished upon you.
