Bringing Jane Austen to the 21st Century
Kaitlin Saunders: A Modern Day Persuasion

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.

Posted by Kaitlin Saunders in Blog on September 24, 2011

Today is my first year wedding anniversary with my amazing husband, partner, and best friend, Timothy. Who knew that God would answer all my prayers in this incredible man
who loves me even when I’m unlovable, who takes care of me when I’m sick, and who
supports me in all that I do! Tim, you make me a better woman.

Tim and I dated only nine months before tying the knot—much to my parent’s concern—
but when it’s right, it’s right. And what Tim and I have is so special. I can’t imagine a
life without my man at my side. We have our differences, but those differences make us
stronger as a pair. And yes, we’ve had our share of ups and downs, our arguments and
disagreements, but what far outweighs them is all the laughter, the joyful tears, and just
the sheer awe of happiness we experience when we’re in each other’s company. I thank
God for giving me the special gift of my husband’s love.

I’ve learned so much through my first year of marriage. Tim and I had heard from so
many couples how difficult or unbearable this first season of growing together would be
and frankly, we’ve found it hard to believe. We’re more in love than ever and excited
about what God has in store for us next. It really just keeps on getting better and better.
Sometimes I think, has it really been a year already? But then I reflect, and honestly
the closeness Tim and I share feels founded on more than just this small amount of time
as husband and wife. And you know why—I believe it’s because I’ve found my other
half—my soulmate—my wonderful…

I love you, Tim. Thanks for inspiring me to finally publish my book and for cheering me
on every step of the way.
