The Best Anniversary Gift You’ll Ever Give

Just the other day, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and this sweet love story stopped me in my tracks. My friend Maggie’s wife Lacy wrote the most touching note about their second wedding anniversary. It instantly reminded me of my own love notes from my husband, but more importantly, it was a great reminder of what love and marriage are all about. By sharing Lacy’s note on our blog, I hope this post inspires more people to write little notes to their loved ones. Silly or heartfelt, notes like these are the kinds of gifts you’ll cherish forever!

Here’s what Lacy wrote about Maggie:

“This is what it feels like to love you. You are my favorite everything. I choose you today, and every day I carry your heart in my heart. In honor of our anniversary, I revisited my archive of things you have said over the last 4 years. I hope to always remember them so I write them down. These highlights pretty much sum up life with you:

– “It feels good to know you in life, it feels better to love you, and it felt even better to be loved by you…” Maggie, 2014

– You just slapped my butt and said, “Every day with you is like a slap on the ass…the good kind.” Maggie, 2017

– You said, “It’s kind of like a slumber party with you every night… I feel like someone’s going to come into our room and say, ‘Shh! You two. Go to bed.'”

– You just asked me, “Is it okay if you’re my soulmate?” “Only if it’s forever.” I replied. “I think that’s implied.” You reassured me, then continued… “When I think of love, I think of you.”

– “It’s 84 degrees at 10:30pm. So we took turns squirting water at each other with a squirt bottle and laughing so hard before rolling over and going to sleep.” – Me

– Me: “I like my cars sleek, fast and badass.” Maggie: “I’m going to pretend that’s how you like your women, too.” Maggie, 2016

– “I should have asked you to bring spackle… You seem like the spackle type.” – Maggie, 2013

– “You’re the scariest most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me.” – Maggie, 2014
