In the grand scheme of things, 6 months is a very small amount of time. But in these past 6 months, we've become family, created a home, adopted a furbaby, and fallen more in love than we were the day we said "I do."
6 months ago today, we vowed to be together for the rest of our lives. That promise will always be the strongest vow in our marriage, yet at our weakest moment. 6 months ago was the day that I loved you the least, the way it should be. Our new life together has made my love for you grow and multiply in new ways that I never would have expected.
I want you to know that I always appreciate all of the help you give at home. Even though you take care of everything on the outside of our home, you never hesitate to help me out inside too. I appreciate all your hard work and willingness to pitch in so that we can finish up our chores faster and spend more relaxing time together.
I love our date nights. I think one thing that has kept our relationship strong over the years is that we have never stopped dating each other. We always make time to talk about everything, important and unimportant. Our regular dates to spend time one-on-one make it much easier to talk to you about the "big stuff" when it comes around. It's so much easier to get through stressful situations because we hold nothing back.
When we are 65 and looking back, I hope we do not remember the years. I hope we do not remember the months. My hope is that we remember the moments that have made our life together already so special. The moment we danced in our empty living room on move-in day. The moment that we first laid eyes on each other through a window on our wedding day. The moment of sadness on our last night in Mexico. The moment I called you screaming because of a silly centipede in the bathroom. Our moments of laughter. Our moments of tears.
I hope that we do remember our "off" times, so that we can appreciate our "on" times so much more. Although the days that we are "off" certainly do not reveal my proudest moments, they make me realize how wonderful our "on" days really are. I hope that we will always have more "on" days than "off."
So I just wanted to tell you that today, on our 6 month anniversary, will be one of the days that I will love you the least in our many years ahead. But at this point, it's a day that I love you the most. We've had quite an eventful first 6 months of marriage, and I can only continue to look forward to what the future will bring.
I love you!
