I just wanna live here, somewhere in the deep woods.
Ryan O’Connell, I Want to Know You
This is for you. Always.
Married life is…exactly the same as non-married life. But, still, awesome. And I am so glad to be on this journey with you. We’ve decided to have Christmas here and go to school. And I could not be happier to be challenged, supported, and loved by you. You make me smile on the worst days and make the best days even better.
You once wrote a letter.
” You are incredible. You are the single greatest thing to happen to me. I’ll try not to get to emotional here, but you just have that affect on me….you make me feel like everything is just right.”
“I know things may be rough, but I know that without a doubt you can handle whatever gets thrown at you. Just remember that I believe in you and I will always do everything I can to support you, and us.”
“Never think I could forget you. When I look to our future I see wonderful things…if you get lonely I’d like you to pull out this letter and slowly digest everything in this list until you remember that it will only be so many months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds until I am at your side again…I can’t wait to start our whole, long, incredibly random and awkward life together.”
“I am so ready to be your husband and to have you as my wife is awe inspiring. I am marrying the love of my life, the woman of my dreams in every way, and someone who makes me genuinely happy. I want to share everything about life with you. I belong with you, everything is so much better when I am with you. You are my best friend.”
“We can do anything.”
And suddenly I realized: this is our story. This is what makesus.
P.s. I do read these when I”m lonely and your’e gone. Always. Hundreds of times.
Changed my life forever. Always. It is what my heart feels when I think of the man I am going to spend the rest of my life with. Words are not enough.
