The first time I saw him, I thought he was so cute.
The next time I saw him, we sang a duet.
He was funny and talented, and I knew I wanted to get to know him better.
(and kiss him)
I knew he was The One after a few weeks
(my friends knew sooner).
Over the next four years, we became close, and endured living apart, the hardest thing we thought we’d ever have to do.
The four years since have been unimaginable.
I never could have survived without him.
I wouldn’t have wanted to.
Our life is not how we imagined it would be, except
I imagined him, and he is with me.
I know as long as he is here to hold my hand or sing a duet, I will be okay.
He is my strength, my better half, and my best friend
(I like the kisses, too).
I am so lucky.
Happy Anniversary to us.

Hi Heather, I am one of your silent readers from Minnesota, came to know you thru following Matt and Maddy.
Our local TV station did a story last night about a MN band called Rocket Club. They have a song titled “one more day”, in honor of a baby girl who died. Don’t know if you have knowledge of it or not. It is on one of their recent albums. It’s a sweet song, thought you might like to hear it.
Your love story is so cute! Happy anniversary!
Awww. Happy Anniversary. PS: He is the one who is lucky.
Happy anniversary! I wish you MANY MANY more.
Martha H. says:
Happy Anniversary, Heather and Mike! Ours is tomorrow, 6 years strong!
Happy Anniversary Heather & Mike!
You two are totally meant for each other! I really don’t know two other people who would post such silly possibly-embarrassing videos of themselves doing musical parodies with their kid and dog! That’s love right there!
Many more years together!
Happy anniversary! Your relationship is inspiring (and your dress is stunning).
