Jessica Simpson Celebrates 11-Year Anniversary by Sharing a B&W Selfie with Husband Eric Johnson

We already knew that Jessica Simpson has a way with words, based off her memoir, Open Book. And now, she just shared a post to her Instagram account featuring a long, personal caption.

The Dukes of Hazzard star is celebrating her 11th anniversary with Eric Johnson, former NFL tight end and Simpson's husband since 2014. The two started dating 11 years ago, when they met through a mutual friend and "connected on all levels."

Now, Simpson is celebrating their love with a gorgeous black-and-white selfie, along with a loving caption. She posted a series of green heart emojis and said: “11 years STRONG... 11 hearts filled in every passing year with unconditional, passionate, inspired, fascinating, supportive, beautiful, tempting, ravishing, exquisite, sublime, marvelous, honest, happy, adored, ideal, incomparable, powerful, mesmERIC, LOVE. Our connected hearts are praised and celebrated on this serendipitous day.”

Simpson continued by saying, “I knew the night we met, the fate of you, locked the key to my searching heart and simply held my soul with love and honor. Then, now and for the rest of my life I am fully and always yours and you mine. Gaining access to your heart to dwell and reside in, is the greatest gift I will ever rest within until the end of time.”

And if you didn't think that was powerful, she closes with, “Time goes by, the perfect children you gave me are growing older, but with you and I time does not exist for it only allows space to broaden...expanding beyond horizons just to love and be loved. Happy Anniversary to us, the beauty of us- as is and forevermore.”

Wow, you can't exactly find that kind of a message on a Hallmark card.

Simpson and Johnson got married in 2014 at the San Ysidro Ranch in California. The pair has three kids together, Birdie Mae (2), Ace Knute (7) and Maxwell Drew (9).

Congrats to the happy couple!
