8 years ago...
we said "I do"
I married my best friend
I knew you'd be mine forever
we shared a kiss
and a hug in front of a large number of friends and family
we laughed, we partied, we became one.
I love you my dear, sweet, awesome, fantastic hubster!
If I were marrying you Today...
I would still say "I do"
I would still be marrying my best friend
I would know that you are mine and always will be
I would still kiss and hug you in front of a large crowd
I'd laugh and party with you, because every day, you make me happy and complete.
Thanks for being my best friend,
Thank you for being my go-to-guy for everything
Thank you for being so calm, loving, patient, gentle, kind, forgiving and wonderful.
You are my better half, and I accept that.
Happy Anniversary my love, I look forward to saying that every year from now to eternity.
We've never had a fight, and I'd never want to
every time I see you, my eyes light up
you're awesome at everything you set your mind to accomplish
you are a fantastic father
you are full of kindness and mildness
you make me laugh
I love to cuddle and hold your hands
you let me put my cold feet & hands on you when I'm cold and I thank you
I love to hear you sing and play guitar
I love your jokes, your laugh,
the way your eyes water and your nose crinkles up when you're telling a really funny story
I love the way you wrinkle your forehead when you're thinking
I love that you've never had an unkind word for me
I love that you listen and that you know me better than I know myself,
I love that you love me
I love that you ask me to pick out your clothes and fix your hair
I love your yo-yo skills and magic tricks
I love that you gave me two beautiful children
I love how you work so hard for this family and never complain
You are you, and YOU are who I love.
If I were stuck on an island and could only bring one thing,
I'd pick you.
Also a very large thank you to all of you who were there and helped to make my special day, all the more special. So many friends helped out and didn't get the proper thank you they deserved. But I haven't forgotten you...
*Marlan* for being the best mother in law a girl could ask for. For doing so much when I really had no clue, for sticking up for us when some said we were too young to marry, for making it all happen, you are a truly wonderful person and I can never thank you enough for then and every day since. You're always there and always helpful, and a great mom to both of us.
Briana, Katie, Dawn, Heidi, Karen, Patricia, my bridesmaids, the groomsmen, Delene, the girls that helped serve: Melissa, Brittany, Alissa, All the friends who made food and yummy pies, Zack, Gary for marrying us, Mike and Ashley for the music, even others that I know I'm leaving out, and of course, all of you who came, you were there, and we thank you too.
