My Last First Kiss.

Today is Chris' and my second wedding anniversary. It is only 2:50 in the morning, and I already can't stop smiling. We have been through more in the last two years than a lot of couples go through in an entire lifetime together and there is still honestly no other person I would rather go home to. We love with a love that is more than love, and we do it daily. Hourly. Secondly.

What I would like to know is how I found the one person on this planet that will sit and smile as I watch hours of videos of parrots talking and singing online. That will pretend to laugh along with me when I start laughing so hard at the parrots that I cry, so I don't feel dumb. That works so hard and is incredible at his job, yet is always striving to be better for our family. That will get out of bed in his pajamas when I get home from work in the morning and go downstairs to get me Tylenol and a Mountain Dew even though I'm wide awake and he should still be sleeping when I realize I forgot to grab it before coming upstairs. That will let me get up in the middle of the night and leave the room in a huff over something stupid, then hug me in his sleep when I come back to bed no matter how upset he was before. That will tell me how beautiful I am through weight-loss or gain, dark hair or light, sweatpants or a wedding dress, and mean it. That listens (half asleep) to the annoying ideas and stories I come home with in the morning after a long night of work. That doesn't seem to mind that most of the time I'm home, I'm singing...loud. That makes me hold his hand in public even when I pretend I don't want to because he knows I really do. That still gives me butterflies in my stomach, even after five years. That loves me with the most honest, deep, true, and unconditional love I have ever felt.

My Love, I can't wait to annoy you for the rest of my life. Happy Anniversary! XOXO

P.S. He also is amazing because he says nice things like this. Again, I'm blessed.
