Thankful - Day #11

Today we are thankful for one year of marriage!

by Lauren Natalie Photography

Dear Christopher,
I am thankful for a partner in this life who is forever patient, intensely kind, and outrageously generous. You make me laugh each and every day... and that's HOT! I am empowered by your confidence in me. I am humbled by your adoration of me. I am desperately in love with you. I watch you with the dogs and I see the most gentle of spirits within you. I cannot wait to parent alongside you. Thank you for this year and thank you for this life. Thank you for loving me so sweetly. You, my honey, are my very favorite thing. I love you forever.

Dear Melissa,
I am thankful for your smile, which greets me everyday when I get home. I am thankful for your kind heart, reminding me always how wonderful our life is. Your desire to help everyone you can anyway you can inspires me. I am thankful for your independence. I am thankful to have a partner in all that I do, someone there to help me and challenge me to be the best person I can be. The past year has been better than I could ever have imagined, and I look forward to many, many more. I love you.


  1. So sweet to include messages from both of you. I love love!! (I think that's a Melissa quote)
