Dear Husband

To My Sweet, Loving Husband,
Today we celebrate three years of wedded bliss. It's hard to believe that three years ago right now, I was getting my hair done, putting on my bridal gown, and reading the beautiful card you gave me to read the morning of our wedding. 

Our wedding was nothing short of spectacular. From the ceremony, to the first dance, to the cake and our brunch. Our pictures prove what a beautiful day we had and it meant the world to me to get married in the church I grew up and made my sacraments in. 

Three years ago, we said those beautiful words of our wedding vows together. We promised to be there for each other, to have and to hold each other, throughout all the trials of life. You held true to your words. 

Three years of amazing moments. We bought a house, had a baby, and created so many other wonderful memories. We've had tons of laughs and a few tears too. We've had our agreements and our disagreements. We've woken up every morning saying "I love you" and gone to bed every night after saying those three words again, "I love you". 

Almost eleven months ago we welcomed our beautiful Elizabeth Christine into the world. How lucky are we? She is just the most perfect baby girl. From the moment she was born, you surpassed any expectation I had of you being a dedicated father. From the midnight feedings you did, to rocking our baby girl to sleep (and maybe staring at the baby monitor for hours), to calming me down when breastfeeding became too much for me.

Nine months ago, we had our first scary hospital stay with her. You were my rock. Then came her second hospital stay in November and you were there for me every second. In sickness and in health? You held me together when I thought I was just going to completely fall apart.  

Three years ago I couldn't have imagined the life we would have now. We continue to be happily married, madly in love, and excited for what comes next in our life together. 
I can't help but feel so blessed to be your wife. To have you as the father of our daughter. To be the one I spend the rest of my life with. If it's possible, I think I fall in love with you more every day. 

Cheers to another year of being married, to being parents, and to knowing the amount of love we have for each other. 

I love you to the moon and back. 

Your wife
