Dear Kate, I feel like the luckiest man in the world to have married my best friend. Every day you inspire me to want to be better. You are such a strong woman but yet still so very caring. You stand up for what you believe in. You are just as beautiful on the inside as you are out. You are the first thing I want to see every morning for the rest of my life. You are the first person I want to talk to when something good, or bad happens. You are the person I always try my best to make happy. I know that together is where we are supposed to be. In good times and in bad together is when we are at our best! You are my everything and I am so blessed to experience this crazy journey of life together with you. Happy 1 year anniversary to the best wife anyone could ever ask for! With all my love, Justin

Congratulations to the Verlanders.  Not only is it an exercise in showing everyone how in love they are, it’s also a reminder that even though Houston failed to go back-to-back, Verlander is doing just fine for himself.
