There's nothing like taking a stroll down memory lane to reflect on a relationship ... and boy does this one take a turn for the naked. Katherine Heigl's nude then and now bathroom photo might show off rare sides of the former Grey's Anatomy star and her husband, but comes with a heartfelt message that delivers all the feels.

  • Katherine's side-by-side photo -- taken 12 years ago and inspired by "The Royal Tenenbaums" -- celebrates her 10th wedding anniversary in the best way.

    "Yup, 10 years people!" the celeb mom exclaims in her Instagram post. "A few things have changed since then. I quit smoking, thank God! I’ve put on a few pounds. I don’t often do spontaneously weird things like take random bathtub photos in the middle of the night anymore."

  • The celeb mom's honest and emotional post speaks to the couple's ups and downs and how much Katherine's husband Josh has been a constant anchor in her life.

    "... What hasn't changed, is that burning desire in me to be with this man," Heigl writes. "I gotta be honest. There have been moments where I didn't think we'd make it. Where I wanted to take my pillow and smother him in the middle of the night. But I'll tell you what. The more time I spend with this guy the more deeply I begin to understand that he is the best of me."

  • "When the whole world falls into disarray and nothing makes sense to me he is my shelter, my safe harbor," Heigl declares.

    She continues:

    "When self doubt and self loathing creep into my soul he is my champion, my number one fan. He has bolstered my spirits more times than I can count and he has led me through the darkness back into the light even more times than that. In quiet moments of reflection I feel an overwhelming gratitude that I married this man. This man with his giant, compassionate heart. His laugh so hard I cry sense of humor. His passion and positivity. His talent and drive. His broad chested, sexy 'I got this' attitude. His joyful, unconditionally loving parenting style. I don't think there's a person who's met him that doesn’t love him and I get to call him mine. He makes me better in every way by loving me and believing in me and for never giving up on me. So here's to 10, 20, 40 more years of us! I love you @joshbkelley more than you can probably imagine and then some!"

  • Katherine wasn't the only one feeling sentimental as her husband Josh also took to Instagram to reflect on their 10-year matrimony.

    "10 years ago today me and my beautiful bride walked down the aisle together solidifying our love and partnership," Kelley writes on Instagram. "Life has thrown its many twists and turns at us and we've navigated every move together with grace and passion -- I couldn't love you more @katherineheigl -- you are the soul to my groove !! Let's keep this dance goin strong my little Charleston Shag"
