It took just a minute for me to decide…
that you were safe and wouldn’t hurt me
that you were as beautiful on the inside as you were on the outside; those dimples and milk chocolate eyes didn’t lie
that you were the funniest man I’d ever met
that I wanted to hold your hand
that I wanted to kiss your sweet, soft lips
that you loved me because I was….me
that you were true
that I wanted to be your wife
that you would be the best father a child could have
It just took a minute. An offer of a sweatshirt when I was cold. A friendship that turned into love. A kiss that made me feel like the world stopped spinning.
Every day I’m thankful for you. I mean it. Every single day I take a moment to think about how lucky we are to be together and have this beautiful life. There’s no one else in this universe that I want to walk through this life with.
I hope we’re one of the lucky ones that gets to spend a good, long life together. Because I love imagining us old and grey and still head-over-heels in love.
Happy 13th. I think it’s going to be the best one yet.
