My Sweet Man,
When I found out that one of the traditional gifts for a sixth wedding anniversary is candy, it just felt right! It represents sweetness in a marriage, and that’s exactly what you bring to our marriage. In the midst of a crazy year, you’ve been my comfort, you’ve brought me joy, and you’ve made our lives so much sweeter. I’m abundantly proud to be your wife.
It’s still so fun to me that I look at you and still feel as awe-struck and love-sick as I did in college. Your bright smile and handsome face literally melt me! Beyond that though, it’s been an honor growing with you year after year. From our college days strolling around campus dreaming of one day being married to today, you’ve grown kinder and more thoughtful with every passing year. Your patience alone constantly astounds me. On the other hand, you haven’t lost your humor, your wit, or your ability to make me laugh! I’m so thankful for that.
I can truly say you’re my best friend. I know a lot of people just say that, but there’s no one else I’d rather spend every day with. You challenge me to be a better person. Alec, you push me out of my comfort zones and make sure I’m experiencing adventure. You take the weary, anxious parts of me and bring them to life. I love you for that more every day.
Before I finish my letter, I can’t forget to mention how hard you work for our family. The way you selflessly serve and constantly put in long hours to make sure we’re taken care of is amazing. Your work ethic is incredible and you work harder than anyone I know. Getting to run a business with you has shown me just how dedicated you are. I can’t wait to see what God does with it in the next year! It’s surely going to be more amazing than we could even imagine! I’m just beyond thankful we get to go on this journey together.
You know, I could keep going on-and-on about how much I love you. I tell you approximately 1,000 times a day too (haha) so hopefully, you’ll never forget it. You’re the best man I know and I pray that today is still just the start of our love story and that I get another 60 plus years by your side.
I love you so big,
