Well today marks 3 years since I married my best friend in the entire world. The concept of time is crazy. In the same breath I say “Wow! It’s been 3 years already!” I also say, “It feels like we have already been together forever.” And I love it. I have honestly had the best 3 years of my entire life. Adam is the best husband, companion, father, and friend ever. I can’t describe how much I love him. It is overwhelming, and it just keeps increasing. Watching him as a father has been one of my favorite things. He takes care of us so much, and sacrifices to do so. I appreciate his love and understanding.
There is no place in the world I would rather be then nuzzled in his chest, holding Bailey in my chest. My world is complete. I wish I could go back in time and tell 17 year old Cassie that her life was going to be awesome and not to worry so much about the future. I have everything I ever dreamed of. And I know there is more to come in this life. We are starting a new adventure in Texas as a little family, and I am so excited and ready.
We are apart this anniversary for most of it, so we actually celebrated it a few days ago. We had a beautiful picnic in the park with lunchables and hershey pies, and then had awesome sushi for dinner.
I love Adam’s ability to calm all of my fears. I love that he can look at me and know exactly what I am thinking and how I feel, and knows how to comfort me. I love his sense of humor that makes me cry from laughing so hard. I love his enveloping hugs and sweet kisses. I love how his hand fits with mine. I love how protective he is and how safe I feel with him. I love that I can trust him completely without a single hesitation. I love how he honors his Priesthood and is a God fearing man. I love how he isn’t afraid to be totally silly with me. I love that we share an appreciation for music. I love how we can talk about anything and everything without holding back. I love seeing our relationship blossom with each passing year, getting better and better. I love how he serves me and showers me with love. I love that he genuinely cares about the things that I care about. I love that we have “our” shows on netflix that we save to watch with each other. I love that whenever there is an issue, it is usually because of outside influences, never coming from within us. I love how delicate he is with Bailey and the love I see in his eyes for her. I love it when he calls us “his girls.” I love that we can make fun of each other and not take it personally. I love hearing his breathing in the dark next to me. I love that he will kill spiders and bees for me. I love saying our nightly prayers together and reading scriptures in the morning. I love that I have everything I have ever wanted in a man. I wrote a list of qualities I wanted in my future husband in my journal before I met Adam at all, and he fit every single thing I wrote down.
There are thousands more I could write, but ultimately I just want to say how thankful I am for the life and marriage that I have, and I know that since having Bailey it has only gotten better. It is almost like we are wine…we get better with age haha. I love you Adam Mark Bertoch! Thanks for choosing me to be your eternal companion 🙂
Oh and Adam sent me a song yesterday he found by Lee Brice, and I have been listening to it on repeat. It’s so sweet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7bZsRo13cY&list=RDe7bZsRo13cY#t=0
