Happy One-Year Anniversary!
One year ago today (October 17, 2009), I married my best friend. This weekend, we’re going to enjoy being together…so I will likely be away from my email and blog. But, I thought I’d share some of our favorite photos from our wedding day, courtesy of Lynette Mittendorf Photography.
I love you for continuing to love me despite my imperfections,
I love you for finding me endearing when others might find me impossible,
and I love you for sharing our vision for a brighter future.
Because you have loved me from the very beginning,
 I will love you until the end, and for this, I promise to treat you the way
you want to be treated, and with the respect you deserve.
Because I desire what is best for us, I promise to fight for you, not against you.
Because I believe in you, I promise to stand by your side, to listen when you speak,
to comfort you when you’re upset, and to join your laughter with my own.
Because I accept you for who you are (your talents, gifts and your quirks),
today I erase all past offenses, and I promise not to let the passage of time
or the opinions of others  dull my appreciation for all that you bring to this world.
When life challenges us, I promise to focus on the resiliency
of our love and the commitments we’ve made to one another and to God.
And, if I stumble and fail to live up to my promises,
I will look you in the eyes, hug your neck and ask for forgiveness.
For better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health,
I am committed to doing whatever it takes,
as your wife and partner, now and always.
I love you Jeremy. Happy Anniversary!
