100 Cute Things to Write in an Anniversary CardGetty/Margie Rischiotto

I don't about you, but I love love. And I also love to celebrate. (No really, I'll raise a glass to just about anything.) That's why I'm a huge proponent of marking every single milestone in a relationship, including all the big (and small!) anniversaries. I mean, who doesn't want to get excited about checking off another month/year/decade with their S.O.?!

So, whether you're celebrating 25 years as an old married couple, ringing in your three-month Insta-officialversary, or just simply appreciating your favorite couple on their big day, a sweet card full of anniversary wishes never hurts.

Ready to get writing? Grab your pens, besties! Here are 100 mushy, cute, and downright hilarious anniversary messages to write in a card to your longtime S.O., new partner, cutie parents, or the couple you just can't stop third-wheeling. Ugh, I love love!!!
