BC: (I love you) | - Sarah
FC: Happy Anniversary | one-year
1: Hey Babe, So this is just a little something to show you how much I care and to remember all the great moments we've had together (and all the many more I know we have to come). I love you so much, Phil!
2: That never should have worked . . . but I'm so glad you found my number at a party.
3: Who would have ever thought that a blind date could have led me to you? And even though I could have found my own date ;) not having to helped me find you.
4: There's nothing better than cuddling up with you and a chocolatey chai after a cold Chicago day.
5: I know these pictures aren't your favorite, but it's just because I can't get enough of the feeling I get when I kiss you.
6: You are the swirl to my sesquicentennial, the cheese to my macaroni, and the powdered sugar to my puppy chow.
7: Whether at a Tiger's game, a Second City show or on a Chocolate Tour, there is no one I would rather have an adventure with.
8: I couldn't have asked for a better (or goofier) partner-in-crime!
9: . . . and whether dressed as penguins or a boy scout and girl scout, we are one good lookin' couple!
11: That was the such a great night and an even better weekend (and I have never seen someone look so good in a bow tie)! But no matter where we are or what we're doing, I love just being with you.
12: There's no place I'd rather be than in your arms . . .
13: . . . but dancing the night away with you in your lizard skin shoes is a close second!
14: No matter where we are or what we're doing, I always have an unbelievable time with you!
16: Phil, I never had really been one for blind dates, that was until I met you. From the German Christmas Market where you stopped the water from dripping on my head to this moment right now, I've been hooked. Hooked on your sense of humor, your appetite for cooking and eating, your love of sports (and your ability to fill out an NCAA Tournament bracket), your handsome blue eyes, your vivaciousness, the list goes on . . . but to sum it all up, I'm hooked on you. While neither of us knew where this was going when we decided to take that leap, the one thing I did know was that you, the feeling I get when I'm with you, and us was something I was wanting and willing to take a chance on. And I'm so glad we did! We can talk about anything, laugh about everything and cook up a storm: you are the perfect sous chef I want beside me in the kitchen and in life.
17: We have been through a lot together, and I can't thank you enough for how you have been there for me with everything. Having your support and knowing how you feel about me has given me strength and let me know that I was not alone. And while we may not always be together physically, I know that we are together in every other way. I also know that I love you and you love me, and with that, we can get through anything. This past year with you has been amazing, and I can't wait to see what the coming ones will hold. I love you, Phil, Sarah P.S. - Even though I work with words every day, I don't quite have the "rappin" skillz you do. Despite that, here's one verse I wrote for you I like to call 11:11. You had my heart from the first time we kissed, But you had my all when you first made that wish. My wish for you is that your wish comes true, Because every day, more and more, I love you.
18: Forever can never be long enough for me, To feel like I've had long enough with you. Forget the world now we won't let them see, But there's one thing left to do. . . . Together can never be close enough for me, To feel like I am close enough to you. You wear white and I'll wear out the words I love, And you're beautiful.
