Year 5: It's a big deal!

May 9, 2020

Dear Adam,

Happy 5 years, FIVE YEARS! Doesn’t that feel like a big deal?

Like 2 kids in 2 years big deal?
Like surviving a global pandemic together, big deal!
Like being quarantined for over 7 weeks alone together, big deal!

Little Adam and Kristen had no idea what year five of marriage would look like when we walked down the aisle together 5 years ago today. But I also don’t think we imagined it could be this sweet.

I don’t think I quite envisioned that I could love someone so deeply, so honestly, and so truly. I didn’t know that kind of love even existed. You have shown me that real love, the kind we work for every day, is the purest form of love known to man.

The love you show me every day is the kind where you show up daily. You pour into me and to our family. You give me grace, and joy, and a steadfastness that has helped us both be our best selves.

Adam, you are every bit the man I dreamed up all those years ago as a little girl in my room, and so much more. You’re kind, slow to anger (God knew I needed this trait in a spouse because I can be a little devil), hilarious, kind, warm, calm, wise, sweet, the best dad, insanely handsome, and so loving.

I am so blessed to have spent the last 5 years calling you my husband. I am so proud to be yours.

This life we have built together is nothing short of amazing and honestly Adam, the next 5 are only going to get better. I can't wait for our adventures and travels, life experiences, and for all those little in-between moments that add up to the big ones.

Thank you for keeping me sane in all this coronavirus madness.
Thank you for indulging my Oreganos craving because you know that being pregnant in quarantine is hard.
Thank you for making me mocktails every weekend so we can pretend like we're both drinking together.
Thank you for encouraging my dreams, listening to my vent sessions, and always making me feel heard.
Thank you for loving Quinn with a love so fierce.
Thank you for talking me off a ledge when we found out we were pregnant, again!
Thank you for being you.

Thank you for being mine. Thank you for choosing me every day.

I love today more than I did 5 years ago, and I didn’t know that was possible. Happy Anniversary my love, you're my greatest adventure.
