When over the years, someone has seen you at your worst, 
and knows you with all your strengths and flaws, 
yet commits himself to you wholly, 
it is a consummate experience
- Timothy Keller

Doug -
You have truly seen me at my worst.
My insecurities. My pride. My stubbornness.
My temper. My laziness. My selfishness.
My mid-winter unshaved legs.
My no-make-up ugly cry.

Yet you're still committed to my holiness and our relationship.
Thank you for making our marriage a safe place and our home a happy one.
I am so honored to live life by your side and fight the good fight with you.

Happy 7 years.
I love you!


  1. Happy 7 years! I remember your anniversary every year because ours is just a week later :) Love that quote by Timothy Keller - sums things up so perfectly.

    1. Thanks, Kristen! The funny thing is - I was originally pushing for 7/14 because we started dating on 4/14! :)

  2. I love what you wrote here! Congrats on 7 years!!
