One year ago today, I stood at the head of Forsyth Park, and surrounded by our closest family and friends I made these promises to you. I cannot believe that a year has passed since that beautiful day in Savannah, and I am even more in awe of the wonderful things that year has brought. Although it did not seem possible, I love you more today than I did standing there, grinning ear to ear. As our love continues to grow, I will always keep these promises to you.
To nourish you with my gentleness,
and to uphold you with my strength.
To encourage your inquisitiveness and your interest in the world around you, because that is what makes you unique and wonderful.
To honor our differences
and to learn from them.
To make sure that you don’t lose your keys, or your wallet, or our kids,
if you will make sure that I never lose my hope.
To weigh the effects of the words I speak and the things I do,
and to be honest with you and faithful to you always.
To never take you for granted,
and to always give thanks for your presence in my life.
To support your passions, even if I can’t pronounce them.
To make your plans and dreams as important to me as my own
and to raise a family together with all the joy, passion, gratitude and love that we are so fortunate to share.
I will love you without condition with all that I am and all that I have, completely and forever.
Because wherever our path leads us, it takes us together.
