Its our 10 year wedding anniversary and I cannot help but feel blessed. Can you believe it? I feel like it was just yesterday our mutual friend, Ash, introduced us during lunch in 11th grade! Although I didn’t make a good first impression, because I was apparently upset about something and acting irrational, I’m thankful you didn’t run the opposite way! I’m so happy that you got to see me at my worst so you can see that I am not lying when I say that I am a better person because of you. We built an amazing friendship and you were soon thereafter awarded the hat of being my bestie!
I shared everything with you. My darkest secrets, boy troubles and family struggles. You never judged me but most importantly you were such a great friend and support. What I can’t believe even more is that it took me so long to realize that you were it. The day I realized it, it was like I had an epiphany. It was the first day of school our senior year. You know when you finally step foot on campus and you immediately go searching for your friends to catch up on whats happened over the last two months. All of a sudden, the first person that popped in my head was you. The bell rang and I was disappointed that I had not found you and been able to chat with you because you ALWAYS made me laugh.
I started my day in class thinking “wow that sucks, I was looking forward to hanging out with him because he was soooo funny!” It was time for lunch and to my pleasant surprise you were in my lunch block. I was so happy! Its crazy how things work out in Gods timing. I thought I was gaining an awesome friend and I gained so much more. I found the love of my life, my balance, my perfect match!
I was convinced at 17 that I wanted to marry you so when you asked me at 20, I was all about that life! Although some thought that it was too soon and that we were too young, I felt that it was about time because I didn’t want to experience one more minute as anything other than Mrs. Hendrick!
Becoming your wife has been the best decision I have ever made. You aren’t just a great husband you are my partner, my best friend, an AMAZING father, and my soulmate. I wake up everyday excited to love you, excited to serve you, excited to experience another adventure in what we call life. Although the future is unknown and not guaranteed, one thing that I can guarantee is that I will always love you! I will always choose you! It’s been fun so far my dear but the best is yet to come my scrump-dee-liocious honey bunny ;-* !
Love you always and forever and for all eternity!
Your Hot Tamale!
