Happy Anniversary, Honey.

You know, I’ve written this entry a bazillion times right now. It is actually 10/24 – the day BEFORE my wedding anniversary – but I am worried (read: HOPING) that I’ll go into labor before tomorrow, so I wanted to have my anniversary entry written. I am having a hard time with it this year. I think it is because the last 9 months I have grown so much MORE in love with my husband, that I just can’t seem to figure out how exactly to express that.

I used to think that the beginning of a relationship was the best. I think that is why I was convinced I would never get married again after my divorce, because how can you commit to something that is just going to go downhill for the rest of your life? I loved MrZ more the day he proposed to me, than I did the day I fell in love with him. I loved him more the day we got married than I did the day he proposed. And I love him now MORE than the day we got married. And I can tell you this honestly…I was filled with so much love for him on our wedding day, I would have never dreamed it could have gotten stronger.

But it has. And I know that with the upcoming year, it will continue to grow. And this? Is what I just can not believe. Just when I think, there is no way I could love him more than I do now, my love grows stronger. I don’t know who in the hell I should thank for bringing MrZ to me, but I thank them.

So – MrZoot – I love you more now than I did two years ago. Not a day goes by where I don’t, at some point in time, feel like I don’t deserve you. You treat me like a princess, even when I’m acting like a troll. You harp on my beauty when I’m 60lbs overweight and gassy. You make me smile when you’ve had the suckiest day in the world. You watch really BAD television with me because you know it makes me happy. You hang out and talk to me in the bathroom while I take a bath, even though I make you do so with the curtain closed because of my own insecurities. You tolerate the fact that I don’t make left turns.

I wish I could really have written and entry to do justice for what you’ve done for me in the short two years we’ve been married. But just know that I love you with every ounce of my soul. I love you so much that it hurts sometimes, and I hope that I make you as happy as you make me.

Happy Anniversary. Here’s to hoping we start year number three with me in immense amounts of pain.

  1. Know what? I love him more every year too….You fell in love with good one honey but guess what? He did too. Have a wonderfullly painful day ok? I love you both..

  2. Great post! Great husband — you forgot to mention how hot he is, though. So, I’ll do it for you. MrZ is still as hot as the day you married him!

    In addition, I have decided that if NikkiZ becomes afflicted with the same problem my son did — an addiction to the Wiggles — I will donate all my Wiggles DVDs to you. Do not spend money on them (they are like “crack” for kids). Your blog has made me smile everyday for a long time now. It’s the least I can do…

    And, if you ever start thinking “Hey, you know, Anthony is actually kind of cute.” Get professional help — FAST.

  3. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if she was born today, your anniversary? I’m pulling for you.

  4. Girl, you’ve made me cry once again…b/c I do know and see that love you guys share, and I think it’s amazing and wonderful and you’re both so deserving of it. Happy, Happy Anniversary to both of you…now give me my niece! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love you!

  5. Aawwww, I could only wish to feel like that….I am so happy for you guys!! And just when I thought that was the sweetest thing ever written, I saw what your mom wrote in your comments and I actually got teary eyed. You guys are unbelieveable! Happy Anniversary!

  6. Happy (easy) labour thoughts! Happy baby thoughts! Happy anniversary!

    You will SO ROCK at this giving birth thing. Remember: You the MOMMA.

  7. OMG, no fair to make me cry before I finish my first cup of coffee. That is so sweet. Happy Anniversary to you both. It is refreshing to see people say nice things about thier spouse.

  8. Awww, happy anniversary you two. What a cool thing, to have your daughter’s birthday and your wedding anniversary so close (or maybe right on top!) of eachother!

    I know what you mean about falling more in love. And that’s how you know you’ve got the right guy. I mean, each chapter is different, so it’s hard to measure. Because, God, I LOVED falling in love with my husband. We had so much fun and life was just about the two of us and we went all different places and just had a blast all the time. Now, life has done a complete 180, but we have our FAMILY and it’s so great I can barely comprehend it sometimes. So yeah, way more in love, but damn, the beginning was fun!


    Happy Anniversary! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. What a lovely entry. It is amazing how much we can love our husbands, isn’t it? I too, am in wonder how I can love my husband more than I did in the beginning. But I do.
