A Letter To My Darling Husband – Happy Anniversary

2 years ago I said ‘I Do’ to the man of my dreams. We don’t really ‘do’ presents so here is my way of saying ‘thank you’ for the most amazing two years.

Dearest Rob,

Do you remember the day we first met? We were on the train to Leeds to watch Orient be robbed of 3 points. Who would have thought just two years later we’d be married?

Our time together had been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t change a second of it.  You have made my life complete. You’ve given me a family, a home, and simply a reason to make every day count. There will never be enough words or kisses in the world to thank you for the amazing life you have given me.

Our wedding day was perfect.  The sun was shining, our friends and family where there, Scarlett was on her best behavior and Baby Essex bump was neatly hidden under my dress and her scan photo tucked away in my bag.

We laughed, we cried and my goodness did we dance!!

In the two years that have passed I have remembered every day just how lucky I am to have married my best friend.  We adore being together.  You makes me laugh, you’re amazing father and I know, no matter what, you will always be here for me.  You are my rock.

Don’t get too smug though, you still drive me crazy everyday. You are the worlds worst at remembering to buy cards and presents, the most unromantic person I know and have an amazing knack of always saying the wrong thing.

Yet you makes me feel warm inside every time I look you, and I still get me goosebumps whenever you kiss me.

I love how you always gives me a weather report for tomorrow when we go to bed, how you claim to not like chic flicks yet watch them with a smile on you face, how you watch football with me every night of the week and how you understand, due to my own childhood issues, why being a steady, loving family for our girls is my most important goal in life

Those are the things that matter to me. Those are the things that will keep us together when we are old and grey.

I love that we both have the mantra that a marriage takes work. It’s not a guaranteed happily ever after, you have to invest time and effort into making it work. Passion and romance may fade, its our friendship that will ensure we stand the test of time.

Rob, you are still my most favorite person in the world to spend time with.  Everything seems so much better when you are by my side.  I have so much more fun when I share things with you.  You are my world.

So today, and everyday, I just want to say thank you to my darling Langers.  Thank you for putting up with me, humoring me, forgiving me and loving me.  You make me a better person by just being by my side.

Its been two years since we said ‘I do’, and everyday I am so glad we did!

I love you.
