Dear Kevan,

How have we made it this far? Five years ago today we bumped into each other in the church before the photographer could capture our first expressions, and since then we have been living our lives, sharing ourselves with each other, experiencing and growing together. When our jobs were nearly 130 miles apart, we bore through our commutes to come home to each other every night.

When we pressed send on our business applications, we stayed committed to going together and it remained our number one priority. I love that we have mutual goals and we reflect that in each other. I love that we are both Physicists, and Electrical Engineers and Stern MBAs. I love that we have lived in four states together. I love that you sound so sexy and that you are the most awesome-ess daddy our boys have ever known.

I love that we approach problems totally differently. I appreciate the challenges and small mountains we have overcome. I made a covenant to you and to God to love you for the rest of my life, and today we celebrate that! I celebrate the highs and the lows. The highs are clearly the days our sons were born, walking across Radio City Hall’s stage together, and sipping macchiatos with you in Grand Central tonight. The lows were times that reminded us that God is in charge, in control and without Him we would not have made it this far.

Kevan, I love you, I love you, I love you to huge bits. Happy Anniversary.
