Five Years

June 25, 2005
I officially became the luckiest girl in the world. I walked down the aisle, sobbed as I said my vows, kissed the love of my life, and felt my heart about leap out of chest with joy when I heard the words, "Mr. and Mrs. Matthew and Stephanie Gessner" Seriously people, I hit the jackpot with this man. He is kind, gracious, loving, hard-working, forgiving, patient, smart and funny. He gives me so much better that I deserve every single day. I'm so incredibly lucky to be married to my best friend. August 17th marks ten years since the day that we met- and I can honestly tell you that I knew that he was something special the moment that I laid eyes on him. Two years later, we started dating, two years after that, we were engaged, and one year later we were married.

Now, five years later, I love him even more. We've grown together, we've created a home, we've created a family, we've created happiness. Seeing my husband become a father was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. He was born for this role. He has incredible patience with our children, he teaches them, reads to them, plays with them, and is an amazing role model to these two little boys. These little guys adore their daddy! I couldn't ask for a better man to raise our children with.

Five years has gone by in the blink of an eye. We've had challenges, but we've faced every single one together- as a team- and each challenge has made us stronger, happier, better. Our marriage is an unbelievable blessing in my life. Matthew, YOU are an unbelievable blessing in my life. I thank God every day for the gift you are to me. Thank you for being YOU!!

Lots and bunches, a hole punch

  1. Yay! I love Matt and Stephanie! Thanks for sharing your lives with us. You're kind of a jerk for making me cry, though. No mushy stuff around the preggo, please.
