two years

Two years ago today, I married the absolute love of my life.

It's been two years since we tied the knot and I bet we never thought these two years would take us to where we are today. I know that things haven't always been easy. In fact, I can probably count the "easy" times better than I can count the "not so easy" times. But every time we fall, we still manage to pull each other up. You are my rock. You are my prince charming--the one part of a fairy tale that I still hold on to. You are the person who makes me laugh, who dries my tears, and the only person I will accept "I know things will be okay" from. You are my other, and better, half.

Today also marks two years of something else. Two years of trying to achieve a goal that we have not yet reached. I don't want to think about that today, but it's impossible not to. Our anniversary will forever be tied to the day we started trying to have a baby. But that doesn't have to be a sad thing. It can be a positive thing. It is a struggle that has made our love and our marriage stronger. It has made both of us more compassionate and understanding, and I can't imagine going through this bump in the road with anyone else but you.

You are an amazing person, and I fall more in love with you every day. Thank you for everything you have ever done for me. The last two years have been a roller coaster. I only hope the next 50 will be just as interesting and exciting, bringing us even more joy and happiness than we already know. I love you more than you will ever know and I am so blessed to call you my husband and my best friend.

Love always,
Me

A beautiful letter to your husband that includes words and feelings straight from your soul. Struggling with infertility can do a number on one's psychological state. It sounds that even though you've had some rough moments, you are doing the right thing by tuning into each other, discussing things openly, and being ready to listen to one another during those moments on insanity if you really want to successfully survive infertility. Communication and support are key!

Happy wedding anniversary!

The TTC anniversary is a tough one and I'll be honest -- they don't get easier as the months and years go by. However, with a good partner in crime, you'll make it through.

Happy ICLW!

Happy anniversary! In a way I'm glad that we only started trying a couple of weeks after our wedding day, so that those dates are not coupled...
I so wish for you to have a baby at the next anniversary, either on the way or already in your arms.
