Dear Zach,

Seven years ago today I walked down a red-carpeted aisle with you at the end, and vowed to love and cherish you until death do us part.  In the years since then we have explored much of California, from beach resorts to the backcountry in the mountains; we have moved overseas, and back again; we learned new languages and explored new countries together; we acquired three cats (and lost one); and birthed two amazing children.

I am continually amazed at how lucky I am to have you as a husband.  You love me unconditionally, you support me in my every goal, you are my biggest believer.  You believe in me when I do not, and it is through you that I have been able to achieve many of my proudest accomplishments in these past few years.  My Montessori degree, and breastfeeding Donovan, even giving birth to both our children fully naturally (including Quinn, in our own home)-- I could not have succeeded at any of them without your full support and help.

There is no one I'd rather share my most joyous times with, and no one I'd rather have by my side during my darkest moments.  I love you, dear husband.  Happy Anniversary.  May we see countless more ahead.
