From the Heart

The most heartfelt part of our wedding day was by far our love letters to each other. We decided not to write our own vows so this was a really nice personal touch. I was a little apprehensive about it at first because I was worried about being so emotionally vulnerable in front of a large group of people, even if those people were family and friends. Now I'm posting it for the entire world to see.


Matt's letter to me:


I love you, Sean, because you are the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about before I fall asleep.


You always have my best interest in mind.


You are the most loyal, loving, honest and beautiful woman I have ever known.


You deserve to be treated like a queen, yet you appreciate every small thing I do for you.


Since I have met you, day by day, I appreciate life more and more.


You have shown me just how comfortable and selfless a relationship can be.


More importantly, you will make a a great wife and a wonderful mother.


My letter to Matt:


I love you because every morning I wake up and am reminded of all the good in the world when I see you.


I love you because even when I can't see any good in the world and am feeling more than cynical (which happens quite often) you make me realize just how amazing life is.


I love you for sticking by my side through everything thus far and I love you for the hardships we will endure together in the future.


I love you for the husband you will be and the father you will become.



I do. Today. Tomorrow. Forever.

You are such a good writer and how fortunate it is that your husband is too. This is awesome- such a great post. Thanks for sharing it with us... I need to open up more on that kind of stuff. Also, I would LOVE to see more pictures if you have them- you've got us all intrigued now!

Oh, and by the way, I stopped over to thank you for cracking me up to no end (like always), with your guest post over at Taylor's blog- the way you tell your stories seriously makes me laugh 'til I cry every time. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Awww. I like how similar they are too - you obviously both think alike!

This is so sweet. I wish I thought to do something like that on our wedding day. That's wonderful that you both talked about being future parents. You fall in love all over again and gain so much respect for your partner when you become parents.

Loved all the photo's and your sharing of your letters. Isn't it great to have a good guy!? I have one too and know that he will be with me until the end. It is a comforting thought that I don't think alot of people understand how important that is. I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC and would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much and have a great day!
