My Best Friend, Soulmate, Lover and Husband

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
"You have been my best friend, my soul mate but most of all the love of my life. You have challenged me, helped me become a better person and loved me even when I'm not always easy to love. You love me unconditionally, take care of me and are always there when I need you.

So I promise to love you unconditionally, be the best person I can be and always be there for you when you need me. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you."

― Cassie Sanchez, vows to Israel


To My Husband

It has been a year since we said "I Do" and 8 years since you've swept me off my feet. You have been nothing, and I mean nothing, but amazing. You have been by my side every single step of the way, through the good and the bad, through the hard times and most amazing time. There are no words to even begin to explain how grateful I am to have you as my husband and just being there for me. Thank you for everything you do. Thank you for always being there and being understanding. Thank you for being able to compromise with me when things get hard. Thank you for loving me too the best of your abilities and taking care of me and working so hard on "us". I'm not an emotional person by any means but when it comes to you, you make me feel all types of emotions. I rarely cry but I seem to cry when I'm mad at you or when I read my vows. You make me beyond happy and loved that I cannot contain the tears to myself.

When this time of year comes around, I replay the days leading down to when we first started dating. I remember everything as if it were yesterday. And even though, it wasn't the most romantic way we met, it was perfect. It was the way you made me feel, the way you still make me feel. You care, you've always cared about me and it's so heartwarming to remember how much you cared and how that caring has turned into the most perfect way to love me.

Just The Way You Are

Thank you for everything you do. I know I complain a lot and I sometimes make you feel like you are not enough. But you are more than enough. You are beyond enough. I'm difficult. I'm hard headed. I'm stubborn. And yet you love me, everything about me. Even my crooked, Brooklyn smile or my one small wonky eye. You love me when I'm sick and I stick a wad of toilet paper in my nose to keep it from running. You love me and my worst and you work hard to make changes when things aren't working for us.

So please, don't ever change. Because you are amazing and I love you more than words can even explain.

"There was a time when I didn't believe in soul mates. That changed when I met you. I could see in your eyes that you saw the world in me and since then I tried my best to give you everything. I know you're perfect for me and I for you. I promise I will continue to be the best I can because I now believe."
