When I was a little girl, I played make-believe. And in my naive mind, I imagined a man, a husband, who was brave, strong and handsome. It was a dream. But I am not a little girl anymore and now I can’t help but think of the things I didn’t dream about. I didn’t dream that my husband would watch over me as I dozed off to sleep. I didn’t dream that my husband would pray for my well-being. I didn’t dream that my husband wish for my success and be happy to see me making headway. I didn’t dream that my man would help me make breakfast and pack lunches for me. You are my love, my life, my best friend, and my soulmate. You are unique and good-looking, and most importantly You Are Mine!
You’ve been my husband for two years now and what a sweet life we’ve had! Our marriage has been filled with myriad moments of love that’s better than any fairy tale. I’ve come to realize that no matter what the situations are what matters most is that we are in it together. I could go on and on prattling about your watchfulness and thoughtfulness towards me. You amaze me with your boundless ways to show me how much you care for me. You’ve reassured me of my worth and encouraged me to take up new tasks. You’ve been protective of me, you’ve challenged me, and you’ve gleefully cheered me on. Every goofy joke, every cuddle, every small assurance, and all the moments together are locked in my prized love bank.

Two years into the marriage, and I believe the fun has just begun. Why? Well, ‘coz now you can predict my mood swings and adapt to them in advance [*magic*]. Now you know what makes me anxious and what makes me happy. I’m more myself with you than I am with anyone else. You’re my closest confidant and my best friend. You are the most handsome, thoughtful, brilliant, hard-working man I have ever met. You give the best bear hugs. You share my sense of humor. I can be goofy with you, and I can have deep heart-to-hearts. As much as I love traveling with you, I’m just as content spending time together at home with you.
This life we are building together is wonderful, as you’re such a GIFT. And I promise to love you back as entirely as I can. I promise to never shut you out of my life. I promise to show you every single day that how much I love you. I promise to watch out for you, to always pray for you, and to continue to care for you in the most loving way I know. I have loved every moment of these two incredible years of marriage with you. I still get astounded when I think how our personalities fit each other like milk and cookies. Our strengths balance the other’s weaknesses; and together we make the best pair. I couldn’t have imagined my life in any other way and with anyone else.
I must have told you several times how thankful I am to have you in my life. I’ve spent many evenings gazing over photos of us, giggling at our weird expressions, trying to relive the moment, and savor all the emotions we felt in the picture. We’ve experienced a lot of good-bad moments during these two years of matrimony. But mostly there have been blissful, beautiful, perfect moments; times when we couldn’t smile big enough, or laugh loud enough, or hug each other tight enough. If two whole years have flown by this quickly, I can only imagine how quickly our future years together will fly by. My wish is that I always show you I love you, cherish you, and that I’m with you every minute of every day.
I love you, my Teddybear!
