Seventeen years ago today, we married in a small village in Denmark passionate in our love and committed to a lifetime together. Graduate school and the military forced us apart for a time, and our newlywed days were spent with an ocean between us. When our commitments were finished, we finally stood on the same continent after a three year separation.
I will never forget the look in his eyes as he walked towards me in the airport after his deployment to Germany, sweeping me up effortlessly in his embrace and kissing me like it was the first time.
He holds my heart in his hands and still makes butterflies swarm in my stomach with just a look. He is the man I dreamed of and prayed for as a little girl. And God has blessed me more than I can say.
Our life has been a roller-coaster of ups and downs, yet he is rock solid. His love for each of our children is astonishing and he never fails to tell each of us how much he cares.
He is my superman.
He is everything that I didn’t know I needed. He is sexy as hell, smart, driven, loyal, passionate, funny, quirky, silly, dynamic, serious, romantic and more. He is my Beloved and best friend. Loving him is effortless. Happy Anniversary sweetheart. I am so glad I get to grow old with you!
