We do not remember days, we remember moments...

That first night you put your arm around me and I laid my head on your shoulder...I knew that was where I wanted to be. In that moment I realized that I wanted to feel that way for the rest of my life. And though it would be a while before I vocally said it out loud, I knew it was where I was supposed to be.

This first year of our lives together has been a difficult one. It has been full of heartache, longing, and tears. But it has also brought happiness, strength, and a greater understanding of each other emotionally and spiritually. This experience has bonded us in a way that has sealed our fate forever.

I love you more than words could ever express. I anxiously await the day that we are united and we are able to live out our lives and begin our family. I want you to know that I will follow you to the ends of the earth, just to be with you.

I know this year is going to bring big adventures our way and I can not wait to face them together!

I am so proud of everything we have accomplished this year. I am SO proud of you for being so strong and for having unwavering faith in our Heavenly Father's plan for us.

I could not ask for a more loving husband and I could never thank you enough for being my best friend and loving me so completely.

Happy Anniversary meu amor!

Eu te amo para sempre,

Stephanie

Happy Anniversary! I'm sure this is not the way you wanted to spend this special day, the day of your first wedding anniversary, but you have so many things to look forward to. Your time apart is getting slimmer, and I pray that you are together again soon!

Happy Anniversary and (((huuuuuuugggssss))) I know it isn't how you pictured it - but it'll be so amazing when you two are together. Time apart makes the heart grow fonder. I hated that expression when my hubs and I were ever apart, even when I knew he'd be home in a week or so. It's so true though. ;)
