a love letter to my best friend.

I had something all planned out to write here, but changed my mind.

Once upon a time, there were these 2.

We were so young.
So unaware of what the future held.

Not even really thinking past high school.

Then, in 2006, our paths crossed.
I mean, REALLY crossed.
I knew of you in high school but you were my polar opposite.
I remember you from high school but never dreamed I would see you again.

Then, in 2006, we saw each other.

And this is where it all began.
You made me smile, you made me laugh, we had so much fun.

We made up words.
We spilled our food.
We watched a lot of movies.

We took so many pictures,
made so many memories

We had ups.
We had downs.
We had arguments,
we grew closer.
We made mistakes,
BIG ones.
We were changing and essentially, growing up.
And BIG mistakes have BIG consequences.
We found that out the hard way.

We were surprised by our Hailee.
She was not planned.
I cried.
You vowed to get serious and make the right choices.
but it wasn't enough.
You went through U-Turn.
We got married.
and lived happily ever after.

Yes, we're happy.
BUT - marriage is work.
And it's never without its challenges.

7 years married - 11 years together.

You're my best friend.

You know me like you know the back of your own hand.
with your eyes closed.
in the dark.
in the silence.

And I treasure that.

I choose you.

and I will continue to choose you.

because we were made for each other
and I cannot imagine doing life with anyone else.

And things are going to get hard.
And frustrating.
We are not perfect
but you were a gift to me.

You are my rock and leader through this journey.
You are my sounding board and ear for all of my doubts.
I love that you work hard.
I love your easy going personality.
I love that your thoughts are deep and your emotions are deeper.
I love your honesty and your openness.
I love sleeping next to you even when you snore.
I love that you accept me as your wife - flaws and all.
I love the way you are able to fix things.
(you're the best fixer)
I love the smiles we share.
I love your humbleness and your willingness to work on us.

Because every day, you make a choice to love me.

Happy anniversary babe.
