1: Happy First Anniversary My Love
3: All You Need Is Love Dan, A few months before our wedding, we attended pre-cana. Although I think we both would agree we didn't get much religion out of it, the class did give us the opportunity to write letters to each other right before the wedding. Since the first anniversary is the paper year, I thought I would embrace tradition and create this book of those letters. Years from now, when we celebrate our 50th anniversary I know that we will be able to look back at these and smile at our hope, our love, and how nothing has changed. Happy 1st Anniversary. I love you, Alison
5: From Alison To Dan Dear Dan, I can’t wait to be your wife. The reason I want to marry you is not an easy question to answer. I think there are a lot of reasons I’m marrying you. I love the person you are. I love the way being with you makes me feel. I love that I get to wake up next to you for the rest of our lives. You have changed me. I used to be a cynical, cold person that truly believed love only existed in fairy tales and movies. I thought that people were just fooling themselves and buying a dream. Being with you has changed my life and opened my eyes to the idea that it is possible to care about someone more than words can express and want to spend every moment with them for as long as you both shall live. I think you bring a lot of wonderful things to our relationship. You have taught me to laugh. I am inspired by your creativity and thoughtfulness. You make me proud to be in your arms.
7: From Alison To Dan We haven’t had it easy so far and I’m guessing we have a few more challenges ahead. But we have been able to get through it all together, and I have no doubt that we will be together 50 years from now, able to laugh about some of it. I think you are going to be a great husband and – if you play your cards right (just kidding )– a wonderful father. I can’t wait to marry you and want you to know that I am not nervous about our marriage. I love you more each day and always will. I love you baby, me
9: From Dan To Alison Alison, So here we are at Pre Cana. It’s making our upcoming marriage seem even more real than the guest list did yesterday and the invitation ordering earlier in the week. I kid on one hand, but seriously am enjoying how it is increasingly real. You have done an awesome job so far with all of the work you have put into the preparations and research. You are truly amazing. You are the most important part of my life and I cannot wait to be married. Actually, while I’m looking forward to our wedding day, I don’t know that it actually changes anything for me. I already love you – although I will love you even more tomorrow and every day that follows. I have no idea what the future holds for us and while that scares me to a degree, I am completely okay with it, so long as I’m in it with you.
11: From Dan To Alison I have no idea what I would do without you. You keep me grounded. But you do so in a way that is still silly and fun. I feel like we are different, both individually and together, than we were 6 years ago – yet it feels the same. Life with you is loving, exciting, romantic, sexy, inspiring and most of all, hopeful. I love you more than anything and hope to be and strive to become everything you deserve in life. You are so supportive of my thoughts, hopes and dreams. I am truly unafraid of facing our future together. My only fear lies in letting you down long term. As we grow older I want you to be happy, comfortable, fulfilled – but most importantly, in the end – I want you to know how loved you are. I love you
