A Letter to My Valentine

My love,

Do you remember the day we met?  I remember picking up the phone and hearing your voice for the first time.  I thought, "This guy has the sexiest voice.".  We talked for nearly two hours that first evening.  When I hung up I was already yours for life.  It sounds crazy, but I knew. 

We were meant for each other.

Our first trip, Universal Studios, 1998

Life is hard, but it is so much easier having someone to share it with.  You are not just my lover, you are my friend, my soul-mate, my hero.  You are the world to me, and the world is perfect in my eyes.
Our vows, December 2, 1999

Please, don't worry.  We do not need to be rich.  We do not need to have all the shiny new things. We do not need to be perfect.  All we need is to be a "we".

I cry for joy every time you finish my sentence.  You know me inside and out.
I smile every time you bring my favorite soda, movie, food, etc. You pay attention to the little things.
I melt in your arms because they hold me just the way I need to be held.  You love me so very much.

You never stop bad habits.  Like texting me and then immediately calling...right when I'm opening the text.  It drives me up the wall, but it is your habit, so I love it.

You sacrifice so much for me.  It breaks my heart that you do it.  But you do it out of love. You do not have to, but you sacrifice out of love for me.  And I am eternally grateful.

I could write a list of all the things you do to show me how much you care about me and love me.  But then I would be writing that list forever because you do so much.

Let me tell you how much I love you.

I love you so much I think my heart is on the verge of exploding.
I love you so much I cry at just the thought of how much I love you.
I love you so much I never think, "I...",  but always think, "we...".
I love you so much that I always feel like I can not adequately express how much I love you.

I look forward to being that old couple walking together and holding each other up.
I love you!

With all my love,
