Well it’s been one year since I married Brandt. In the last year, Brandt and I have grown a lot as a couple and as individuals.
Being married is a humbling experience. I’m very stubborn and often have a grouchy attitude about me. What's amazing is that Brandt has been very patient and understanding. Every time I get upset about whatever he gently asks me, “What can I do to make you feel better?” I wish I could be more like him.
This semester has been very difficult. I thought that college wasn’t hard, that was until I took mainly 300 and 400 level classes and with my work going to press on top, I have struggled the past fourteen weeks.
That’s where Brandt comes in. He made dinner, he cleaned the house, gave me a priesthood blessing, and helped me with some of my school projects. I wish there was an eloquent way of describing everything he has done for me, because I really would not have made it with out his help.
Not only did he do all of that, he was my own personal cheerleader. He kept on complimenting on the work I did and how smart I am (even when I didn’t think so at the time). Additionally, he supported me and listened during those moments when I couldn’t take it anymore and held me when I cried.
So after one year, I am taken back just how much Brandt loves me and I hope that I’m worthy enough to be his wife. I love you Brandt, thank you so much for being more than just a darling husband, but a friend who has genuinely cares for me and loves me despite all of my many, many shortcomings. Happy anniversary love dove! I look forward to spending forever with you!
