James Van Der Beek is celebrating over a decade of marriage with his wife, Kimberly.
The Dawson Creek alum, 44, posted two smiling selfies with his spouse, 39, on Instagram Sunday, showing the couple snuggled close and smiling outdoors as the sunset.
“Doesn’t seem like 11 years… In so many ways, you still feel like a new beginning to me,” the actor captioned the candid shots, beginning a heartfelt tribute. “We’ve been through so much life already, through so many phases of consciousness and personal evolution… and the growth continues!”
“I realized that today marks a day I can no longer say, ‘Last year was brutal…’ From anniversary to anniversary, our lives have transformed into something neither of us could’ve predicted but both would have 100% chosen,” he continued.
“So happy to be on the cutting edge of realization with you @vandeerkimberly There’s no one I’d rather begin anew with, grow old with, or just lay around in bed with (on the rare occasion we get to do that),” he added. “I love you #happyanniversary”
Kimberly shared her own anniversary shoutout to her husband on Instagram, posting the a similar selfie before floral wallpaper that James began his two-part carousel with.
“My baby, Happy 11 year Anniversary! And my one year anniversary of coming to Austin for the first time,” she wrote, later adding “I don’t know how many years we will have together in this sacred lifetime, but I am awestruck that the world brought me you for whatever time that may be.”
James and Kimberly van der beek, who wed in 2010,moved their family from Los Angeles to Texas earlier this year and have been chronicling their life down south on Instagram with their five children: son Joshua, 9, and daughters Gwendolyn, 3, Emilia, 5, Annabel 7, and Olivia, 10.
In a recent interview, James van der beek said he inspired to move his brood to the Texas city after visiting for an earlier anniversary celebration with Kimberly.
“We wanted to get the kids out of Los Angeles. We wanted to give them space and we wanted them to live in nature,” James van der told the outlet. “When we were flying here for our anniversary, I felt an energy to Austin. The energy was the same energy that I’d felt shooting Varsity Blues here when I was 21, and I realized that feeling wasn’t just where I was in my career or the movie I was shooting, all of which were very exciting, but that the energy is the place. It was really cool to realize, ‘Oh, I can go be there. We can drop in and bring our family to that.”
