Our Third Anniversary: Dear Daniel…


POSTED IN: The Lund's

Dear Daniel,

Another year older, another year of life, another year of marriage, but most importantly another year of doing life with YOU. I feel like the past year has gone by in a blink of an eye, don’t you? Time just really needs to slow down! This past year has been filled with so many wonderful memories we’ve created together, near and far! What a wonderful year it has been, truly! Each day with you brings such a smile to my face, I laugh more than I did the day prior, and my love continues to grow each and everyday for you and our life we have together. I’m not sure what I did to deserve such an incredible, kind, and loving man such as you, but I do know I was blessed with a husband who continually shows up in the areas of life where I fall short, and for that I am eternally grateful. One of the strongest memories we both have from our wedding day is the unfortunate weather we had, our Christmas wedding instead was a nice balmy and super humid 87 degrees, with rain on and off all day. Everyone kept telling me that day that rain means good luck, however no one ever explained why. Recently I found out that it means good luck because a wet knot is harder to untie, and now I am so grateful for that rainy, humid weather that day! As with any couple and in any marriage, life has thrown us some challenges along the way, big and small. Yet day in and day out, we stood hand in hand, braving the storm together knowing the greatest support would be found in each other and in our God. Each storm we’ve braved, we made it to the other side of the storm, hand in hand, our marriage stronger than it was before. Life has been so beautiful with you! Of all the great things in my life, you’re truly the greatest of them all! 

I think it’s safe to say that I KNEW you and loved you nine years ago…however, I have found over the past three years that there is so much more about you that I love even more. For example

-You always look at me with the most lovingly look, regardless if I’m dressed to the nines or rocking sweats and a messy bun

-You love everything and every quirk about me, even the weird ones…

-You realize that even though I won’t admit it, there are times that I need to be taken care and you happily step in each time

-You remind me that I’m human, and more importantly you remind me that it’s okay to be human and that no one expects me to be wonder women

-You realize my coffee addiction is real, and you fully support it

-You’re humble enough to proudly second shoot and take the backseat in our business, even though years ago you taught me every single thing I knew

-You bring me coffee each and every morning and kiss me goodbye on my forehead as you head off for work

-You’ve made me believe that anything is possible

-You pack my camera back and all my gear for me for every session and wedding for no specific reason, just because

-You let me dream, really big! After every busy/wedding season, it would be so easy for you to say, ‘How about we take a break from dreaming up all these new ideas, ok?’, but you never say that. You always listen and cheer me on and support every new idea/venture, even the crazy ones

-You realize that at times I overwork & overbook myself, but you’re kind enough to forgive me when it makes our days miserably busy, and then you help me get through it

-You take care of every house and bill related thing, you’re accepting of my lack of finance intrigue, I couldn’t even tell you what days bills are do, but you never miss them

-You show up times ten in all the areas of life where I fall short

-You encourage me and support me, even on the hardest days of being self-employed

-You always make sure I know how much you love me

As I said in my vows three years ago, ‘in other words, you simply make my life wonderful’. Life with you is pretty amazing, and it’s a life I love so much! I could write paragraphs upon paragraphs of all the reasons I love you! Daniel Lund IV, I am so very honored and blessed to be your wife. Happy three years bub, only a hundred more to go!!


Your Loving Wife
