Happy monthly anniversary to my darling, kind, and loving wife. I missed yo so much while I was working late in the past couple of weeks. Being at home with you again relaxes me, makes me feel safe and in proper working order. Our house needs life in it, and when one of us is away for too long, the house no longer feels welcome. Shadows grow longer, noises are more sinister, and the bed never feels right. I love you, and thank you for being my wife.

Happy 137 months of marriage to my lovely wife.  Thank you for all your love and support during my long match up the 50,000-word hill for NaNoWriMo. It's been crazy, but I'm relieved that I made it again this year. Thank you for all your cheers and your gentle approaches while I'm in the midst of writing. We writers are a flighty bunch. We spook easily, running like gazelles when startled, and I love that you gave me space yet were close enough to make sure I knew I was loved.

Happy monthly anniversary to my wonderful wife. I hope I'm always the one who impresses you and sweeps you off of your feet. I love you, and I love us together, cozy in our little home with our cats.

I love you, my wife. Today, I wish you-wish us-a happy 134 months of being together as husband and wife. This week has been strange, since I'm at work for several midnight shifts for the game I'm working on. I miss you, or at least, I get teases of you as we pass each other, residents of a day world and a night world. In a few days, our house won't feel like it's missing something. It'll be over, and we can go back to our tranquil cycle together in our cozy home.

I love you.

Happy 11 years and one month to my lovely, gentle, wise wife. I was afraid that technical issues tonight would break the tradition I have here. I hope you know that these posts are deeply personal things, and this is a habit I wish to keep. I don't know if anyone will read them, but I imagine them to be special markings I leave on some Internet cave wall, left for random explorers to find. I want them to know that I love you, and that I mark this time as something special, something celebratory. To miss a month feels as if I would forget the very essence of you, something that is a silent crime.

I love you so very much.

Happy 11 years to my lovey and wonderful wife. I hope you enjoyed the prose gift this morning. I write them only for you, and mean every word in them. I share them with you, just as I share my life, and I mean to keep sharing them with you for years to come. I love you.

Happy 129 months to my loving, wonderful wife. For the first time in a long while, I feel as if my life is going in a direction I want it to go. I have a terrific job (for now) writing video games, I'm writing regularly at home, I'm working out every day, and I have you - my love. I know the world can change. I can lose my job in a heartbeat. I could end my gym membership. I could stop writing (although I imagine I would have a lot more free time if I didn't go to the gym or the office). But I know you would love me and support me, holding me over until things stabilized again.

I love you.

For my love, happy 128 months of being married together. I love you, and I'm excited to start working next week in my new job. Thank you for being supportive in the five months between the end of my last contract and this new opportunity. You reminded me not to panic, not to get ahead of myself, and to never stop trying despite a job market that was barren as the desert. And now, I writing for video games. Thank you for being my love and my pillar.
