Three years later, we're still celebrating. I don't have any idea what Angel's plans for today are, but I do know he's been planning. In addition to mystery plans, Angel also wrote this blog post in honor of our 3rd wedding anniversary.
This last year has been the easiest, funniest, and most loving
year compared to the first two. I understand Rachel much better and anticipate
her needs, which is why this is much easier now. Ever since the bear costume, bats, discovering Rachel's similarities with baby Sarah, and adventures with our siblings, things have been more fun and adventurous. Rachel
continues to be the one I love and I’m sure many husbands feel the same
way about their spouses and for those who do thank you for being men and
committing. Rachel is all I think of on my drive home from a long 12
hour shift at work. I see her smile as I walk in the door and she says,
“BABY!” every time I come home.
If Rachel has been gone for more
than 5 hours I get a little dry on my Rachel tank and need to write her
notes, or cook her a meal, or do something special because I think of
Rachel is happy, Rachel is my first white wife, Rachel fits all the
criteria of what biblical love is along with “crazy.” Rachel is intense,
passionate, and has no fear where I have all the caution in the world.
Rachel can’t be described, even her way of dressing can’t be described.
Rachel is truly an acquired taste.
I remember the first time I drank
root beer soda, which was at a Carman concert and I was thirsty and my
friend bought me root beer and I was like, "What is this?!" But after I drank it, I loved it. I remember having blue cheese, ranch, and honey for the
first time and not liking them at all...but now, I love them. Before I thought these things were
weird, like Rachel, but then I found that they were good,
but I never would have discovered that if I hadn't gotten outside my comfort zone. Living with Rachel
has definitely stretched my comfort zone. Now I put ranch on my fries,
blue cheese on my pizza, honey in my green tea, root beer with my meals,
and Rachel in my life.
Rachel is my next of kin, wife, spouse, partner, not just my girlfriend
or fiancée. She is my real deal! I take pride in
marriage, in the wedding band I have with her, and in our commitment.
I’m glad to be equally yoked with her. I’ve heard of special wives that
are 1 in 10,000’s and I know Rachel is one of them. Happy Anniversary
