In the past two years I’ve learned more about love than I ever thought possible. I’ve learned patience, kindness and to be selfless for your partner. I’ve learned to listen and to support. Being married gives you full permission to be weird and Andy, there is no one else I’d rather be weird with. I love you.

It’s funny how much easier life gets with someone by your side. Luckily I’ve always had someone – a friend, a mom and now my love. The challenges that arise are never easy, but the ability to bear it with someone 100% supporting you changes everything.
In our short time together, Andy and I have experienced cancer, rejection from University programs and moving twice. We’ve also experienced travel, a new house and adding our sweet Bella to our family. Marriage is so much more than a ring, it’s a commitment to live for another person. To completely surrender your own selfish needs and put the needs of your partner before your own.
When Andy and I got married, I surprised him at our reception and sang him “I Choose You,” by Sara Bareilles. I had so many disappointments in dating and relationships that it meant everything to have him with me.
There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something againMy whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letterTell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you…-Sara Bareilles
