Oh my sweet husband. I know that sometimes life gets hectic and I don’t always take time to say it, but I love you. I love you so much. I love you like the day I stood as your fiancé and became your wife. I love you like that first night we kissed and the night you proposed.
It’s been a busy few years with life and a baby, but I love you even more. I am sometimes consumed with my role as a mom. I have to wake up and focus on our son, get us all fed, make lunches, prep dinner and make sure we are all out the door on time. I’ll spend hours in the day running errands and going to appointments and I’ll probably just throw on a t-shirt and leggings—which are now in my vocabulary as pants. I’ll spend time on my small business, my little contribution to our family you work so hard to provide for and I’ll do my best not to forget anything on my long to-do list.
Somewhere in between I will try to find the time to take care of myself. I know when we met you thought I was gorgeous and I know you still do (bless you, my love), but it’s hard work now spending time putting on makeup and working out, getting to shower longer than two minutes, looking half decent and making sure there isn’t food in my hair. The scale shows different numbers than it did back then and there’s love lines where there used to be bikini lines. The bags are no longer designer, they just sit under my eyes instead. My favorite date nights usually start with take out dinner and end by 9pm. You still swoon over me and that matters most, it matters more than you can imagine.
Oh my sweet husband, I love you now more than ever and even though our lives are one hundred times more crazy than the day we met, I’m one hundred times more smitten in love with you as a husband, father, hero, friend, teammate, soulmate and lover.
