Soundtrack To A Love Story

Jessica did something similar to this for her hubby on their anniversary last year, and I loved it so I'm stealing her idea!  All the links in the post below are to different songs.  Call it a "soundtrack" to our love story.  These are for you, Derek!


Derek, I can't believe we've been married for five years now!  These have been some of the best years of my life, and that's because I married you.

I was thinking back over our story this week, and how we met.  I remember the week I first noticed you.  I kept hoping you'd look my way all night, but you didn't, and it really annoyed me!  The next week though, you were standing by by the door as I walked in, and you looked right at me and said hello.  I forgot how annoyed I was at you pretty quickly.

We had both kind of stopped worrying about finding someone at the same time that we met.  Funny how that works, huh?  God brought us together out of the blue.  After our first date I knew I liked you.  A lot.  Those dating days were so carefree and fun.  We fell in love pretty quickly.  Our first kiss, in your car before your hockey game, just confirmed to me that we were meant to be

It didn't take us long to know that we wanted to get married.  I knew a proposal was coming, but you still took me by surprise that day! My heart was pounding when I realized what was going on, but I was so excited.  I knew I wanted to be your girl for the rest of my life.

Our wedding day was perfect (even with the grass-green cake that the bakery messed up).  They threw the rice, we took off in your car, and our life together started.  We've come a long way since then.

We didn't plan on both being unemployed at the same time just a few months after we tied the knot, but those early days were still some of my favorites.  It was rough, but we were together, so it was all good.  We got jobs, settled into our house, and learned how to work with each other.

I'll never forget the day the day that pregnancy test finally turned positive.  You laughed and I cried, I was so happy!  What I didn't know then was how amazing it would be to see you as a father, and how we would become even more of a team doing this work of parenting together.

Things will change as the years go on, and sometimes I wish I could slow time down.  But through it all, I'll have you.  What a gift from God you are to me.

We had our fights (still do), and I know I'm still working at being the kind of wife I want to be.  But I think we both know these are good times.   We've been through a lot so far, and I know we'll go through a lot more in our lives together, but I wouldn't trade one day. Whether you realize it or not, you've made all my dreams come true.  I love everything about you, even through the rough patches.

I think I'll keep you forever.  Happy 5th Anniversary, Babe!

I just have to say, your post on wifessionals was just what I needed to read today! Thank you for being such a rea, down to earth mom! There is so much pressure to be "supermom" and you just reminded me that I'm not a bad mom for not doing this, or doing that. :)
