KISS & TELL: Dear Husband

Dear Husband,

I am slightly hesitant to write this open letter because our marriage is sacred to me. Yet, at times, I wish a camera could briefly hone in on our real-life fairytale. Not for show, but for inspiration and proof that love can be pure, love can be fun, and love can be genuine.

Dear husband, I remember the very first email you sent me. It was simple, yet sweet; sweet enough for me to wonder immediately after if you would be my last first date

Dear husband, you get on my nerves sometimes and at times, I want to punch you in the face, but more than anything I just want to make up with you because I hate it deeply when we fight.

Dear husband, I’m aware I get on your nerves too and you probably want to say some pretty mean things to me in those moments. I’m so thankful that you never do.

Dear husband, I am sorry about how mean I was to you the other day and still, you brought me back my favorite candy when you went to the store. Now, that’s love. : )

Dear husband, I love how incredible of a father you are. I always knew you would be, but to see you interact with our son is the most priceless gift.


Dear husband, thank you for filling our home with laughter and laughing at my corny jokes.

Dear husband, thank you for letting me be my goofy, awkward self which I’ve never been quite comfortable showing anybody else.

Dear husband, thank you for breaking out in dance for no reason, especially when there’s no music.

Dear husband, I love to see you fixing things around the house. It is the sexiest thing in the world to see you exit the attic dirtied with sawdust, and particle board.

Dear husband, thank you for making me feel safe: spiritually, emotionally, and financially.

Dear husband, I look forward to growing old with you, watching you live out your dreams, and checking off our bucket list together.

Dear husband, I am proud and I absolutely enjoy being YOUR wife

Dear husband, I hope when you read this that it will make you smile. : )

Dear husband, I love you more than I did yesterday and I hope to love you more tomorrow than I do today.

Happy Five year Anniversary!

Your wife

  1. This is one of the most romantic articles I’ve read all day. Not just because of the love that you both seem to have for each other, but because of the fact that your love is real; It has it ups and downs, but even with all that, you choose everyday to love him and vice versa

    • Awww, thank you. I believe, what’s happening today with relationships is people are desiring love that comes easy, not realizing, just like everything else of value in life, you must work at it and be dedicated…. and have fun with it. Thank you for reading : )

  2. Reblogged this on Miniscule Diary and commented:
    I have been too restless to write anything of my own, but ‘ve busied myself reading others. I am glad I came across this. You’ll be glad you did too.

    Dear Husband, I hope you fuel my muses with bright flaming fiery sparks of love for you… for us. One day, every day, I want to feel just this way about you. I want to love you for you, love you for us, and love you for loving me the way you do. Promise to make it happen, promise me…

    Signed, Me.

  3. This is truly beautifully encouraging. I was giving up in this kind of pure, fun, love. I though it not possible. My hands were at midpoint of throwing them up in giving up. Not only was I staying to believe this love was n no longer possible but that it wasn’t possible for me as a black women. Thank you.

    • I remember having those exact feeling. After seeing the men out there, I thought if I wanted a family I would have to settle, especially as a black woman. You don’t have to settle! There are good men out here that desire marriage and family too. It is truly possible. And if that is your desire, I am a firm believer it will happen. I so glad this was able to encourage you. Don’t give up on love. I almost did and I wouldn’t have this if I had.

    • I was hoping it would be, especially in these times where so many people do not fight for love anymore or because they’ve been hurt too many times , they believe it doesn’t exist. Thank you for reading.
