A whole hand

Dear Benjamin,

Today we have been married for five years. On one hand it seems like longer because we've grown so much together, but it also seems like just yesterday when you were the only person I could see at the end of the aisle.

Inspired by this post, I thought I would use this space today to tell you what I believe after five years of marriage.

I believe...you make me a better person.

I believe...in you - as a husband, an artist, and in every aspect of our lives.

I believe...in asking you questions about comics because I want to know, but also so I can impress people with my knowledge of story lines.

I believe...in being grateful to whoever decided we would be in the same first grade classroom.

I believe...in laughing during hard times.

I believe...in making lists, in hopes that one day you will love them as much as I do.

I believe...in us.
I believe...in silly nicknames and crazy dances.

I believe...in "rest time."

I believe...even if we never have children you will always be enough for me.

I believe...in loving you fully with all that I have.

I believe...in fighting fairly, no matter how frustrated we are.

I believe...a "night-in" date with a good movie and Chinese food can be even better than a meal at a restaurant.

I believe...in leaving notes for you when I go away - even if just for a weekend.

I believe...you are my best friend and my better half.

Happy anniversary my love. I'm so happy we get to spend all our days together.

All my love,
Your wife

So sweet- I love you both! I also completely believe in lists where Eric does not (in fact he will not do something if it's on a list haha, so I don't make him to do lists if I want anything accomplished!). We both believe in laughing in hard times.

As someone who is responsible for making first grade class lists, the pressure is ON! What marriages can I set up!?
