Butterfly Dates | Two Months Married | A Love Note


We haven’t written many personal posts on this blog… mostly because we are wrapped up in sharing other people’s love + wedding photos. But today is special. Josh and I were married June 4th of this year…so I guess that makes today our 2-month anniversary. I have been meaning to do a post related to our wedding, sharing our process of planning, and my DIY projects so clients can see we really DO know what they are going through. I will do that at some point, but in the mean time I’m going to get a little gushy, share one of my favorite date nights with you (from a while back), and pretty much just hi-jack our blog to write my hubby a love note. It’s the digital age, after all. And public declarations of love should not just exist on your wedding day.

Dear Josh,

We have been together for a little over 4 years, and today we have been married for 2 months. People ask me all the time if being married feels much different to me than simply “dating” or being in a live-in relationship… and usually I say the honest answer -not really, but I have a sparkly ring now. This is a little bit of a joke, and not meant to be a bad thing. The truth is, I’ll never stop dating you. The reason I knew I wanted to marry you, and essentially date you forever, is because I genuinely like you MORE with time. In the years I’ve known you, you have grown a lot and each day you are an even better man than you already were. You consistently surprise me… not only in the “random flowers” kind of way, but in ways that only I would appreciate (your approach to things in life, your character, the way you value my opinion). You make me laugh in the choking-crying-slap-your-knee kind of way (I know, I know…I’m the only person under 90 who actually slaps their knee). You are someone I genuinely enjoy spending all my free time and work time with. You are honestly just a plain good husband. I’m lucky to have a guy who takes marriage seriously. Seeing how you protect and care for our marriage even in these early stages is inspiring and makes me want to be a better wife. Plus, you wake up before me to make coffee. every. single. morning. What more could a wife ask for?

I found these pictures while editing today from a date night at the Tropical Butterfly House (Pacific Science Center). Remember when we used to take turns each week choosing date night places? You chose this one and I loved it (it reminded me of the movie Mozart and the Whale in the scene where they go to the Bird Pavilion). I have hair in these pictures, and you have a lip ring which is funny. You look handsome.

We may only be 2 tiny months into our marriage, but I know I will post something similar to this after our first four years together as Mr. and Mrs. I love you. //Ali
