It seems like only yesterday we met, you 26, me 23, mere babies but a life full of experience and responsibilities. I never thought I would meet my husband somewhere silly like match.com but other people had it worked so why the heck not, it had to beat the idiots I was meeting at the bars.
My heart was held close, it had been broken before. I was determined not to settle. I knew there were good men in this world and by God, I was going to find one.
Then that fateful day in December you found me (or I found you) but I could never imagine how my life was going to change going forward. You have brought so much peace, happiness, and a love I thought was unimaginable to my life. I am proud to be your wife.
I know you are not happy about turning 30 and I know you feel like you are getting old but God has great plans for you! I am sure of it! I can't wait to see what you do with the next 30 years. You are one of the smartest people I know, don't let anything hold you back.
I love you so much! Happy birthday!
