My Love, My Wife

Happy Anniversary Kyla.

Today is Kyla and Mine's one year wedding anniversary, and we've been together for just over 4 years now. I can't believe how time has rocketed by us. It felt like yesterday still I saw her walking down the aisle, and started crying. I still have butterflies when I think about it. Unfortunately, we are not able to do much this year, but here is my surprise to her.


The following blog will be for the love of my life; Kyla.



Kyla, you are the love of my life, my moon and my stars. I cannot believe how time has passed so quickly, and everyday with you feels like a whirlwind. You have the sweetest, kindest soul; and the strongest willpower. Baby, you are absolutely hilarious, I have never laughed the way I do with you.


How can I show my love to you this anniversary? I could continue the romantic talk, but that's not my strong suit; and not our style.


Even in our wedding vows, our humour always poked through. You make life fun for me, and I brighten your day with my wildly hilarious comedy.



One of our early anniversaries, you took the time to make crafts for me. It was a truly heartfelt gift, and it made my heart flutter. Even then you knew my love language so well. In one of those crafts, you gave me a list of song lyrics that reminded you of me. It was lame(lovely) and brought me back to the mixtape days.


"When I'm not with you I feel awful

She likes my ideas, she say I'm thoughtful"

-Summertime in Paris, Jaden, WILLOW


"Put you in my hall of fame, middle of the wall

Yeah, you're my one, my favorite, my ride or die, oh

Yeah, I'ma love you like a fool

Breathe you in 'til I hallucinate, mm"

-Hallucinate, Dua Lipa


"The way that you kiss good night

The way that you hold me tight

I feel like I wanna sing when you do your thing"

-Honey Honey, ABBA


"I'm slipping into the lava

And I'm tryin' to keep from goin under

Baby who turned the temperature hotter

Cuz' I'm burnin' up, burnin' up

For you baby"

-Burnin' up, Jonas Brothers (had to)


"Baby it's you

You're the one I love

You're the one I need

You're the only one I see

Come on baby it's you

You're the one that gives your all

You're the one I can always call

When I need to make everything stop

Finally you put my love on top"

-Love on Top, Beyoncé


"'Cause my body too bootylicious for ya, babe"

-Bootylicious, Beyoncé



I love our gross cat children. They bring so much joy into my life, and endlessly talking about the cats with you always makes my day. I can't believe we found Beyoncé on our six month anniversary date. Even when they're being little jerks, you always find a way to make me laugh. It is ridiculous that we have eccentric backstories for our cats, even more ridiculous when we do little voices for them. What is most ridiculous, is that I found someone else just as insane as me. You make not only my days brighter, but both of their's too.




I would now like to share a list of Kyla-isms. I love you, and hope I don't get in too much trouble for this! These are some of my favourite things that you have flubbed along our journey together.


"The Beables."
"Don't yell in his leg"
"I'm gonna put my whole hand in your fist"
"Through your kidhood"
"Bowl of Communism"

and of course...

"You can tape a knife to anything"


Finally, let's take a look at some of my favourite pictures of us together. (Also a couple of memes I found in my phone)



In all honesty this is the second time making this. For some reason everything I wrote was deleted, but that's okay. Sometimes things happen, and just like us, we keep growing. I love how much I have grown as a person with you; and I love seeing you grow as a person too. It feels like we were only kids when we first met, and now we're already celebrating one year married. I can't wait to see what adventures are ahead of us, I feel like we can face anything as long as we're together.


Anyway, for everyone else, thank you for reading through all this mush. I hope you all have a fantastic day, now I'm going to spend time with my wife.
