We wanted to craft a heartfelt opening, but we had a hard time finding the right words. We hunted for an inspiring quote, but Google returned too many options and Meredith couldn't decide. We tried to be funny, but unfortunately when Adam enlisted in the Army they issued him a uniform but not a sense of humor. So, all we've got to start with is a smile and a hello.
By Meredith: Why is Adam the best thing that's ever happened to me? It's the way he looks at me like I'm the only one around. It's the way he'll drop everything to comfort me. It's the way he casually reaches for my hand. He tells me how much he loves me every single day. He's my biggest fan, and he sees things in me I don't see in myself. He would give the shirt off his back...even if it was the only shirt he had. He is humble and reflective, and he is always striving to become a better person and husband. I'm not sure what I did to deserve him, but I'll do it ten times over again to get to be his wife forever.
By Adam: Meredith is my wonderful wife. This matters because it's the normal day-to-day that shows character and how a person can be. She looks past the materialistic. She provides thoughtful and heartfelt rewards and surprises that others may simply gloss over. It is because of this that I have had my best and most memorable experiences, such as my promotion to Captain and our wedding day. I am able to share those experiences with her. She knows what's important. She knows the right way to teach and to love the life that otherwise never could have been.
