To My Future Husband,
I love you & Happy Birthday! I can never tell you enough how thankful I am for you. You have changed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. You are patient, understanding, thoughtful, and did I say, patient?
Last year was rough but we made it and I am glad that we did. Honestly, who would have known that when we met 8 years ago, that 6 years later we’d start dating and you’d be asking me to marry you?
I don’t know if I’ve ever told you this but…
when I gave you my number I checked my phone ALL DAY, waiting for your text. When you finally text me, I was going to wait to text back but I was too excited, that all of that went out the window.
I remember the first time that you told me you loved me & how you didn’t care that I didn’t say it back. I’m pretty sure that’s when you realized I was a tough cookie (LOL). You never rush me into anything, no matter how you feel. Fast forward to when I told you I loved you for the first time, I was so scared to admit it. Even though I already knew you felt the same, I am stubborn and guarded. I knew that once I said it, I was opening up and allowing myself to be vulnerable, something I struggle with.
Something else I don’t think I ever shared with you…
When I found out you were going to propose, I wanted to tell you that I knew so that you could hurry up and do it already! Thinking back now, it’s so funny because we argued the most during that time. We got into so many arguments because you are such a horrible liar, and I’m too good of a detective!
I am saying all of this to say. Your birthday will always hold a special place in my heart for many reasons. First, because it’s the day you were born! Secondly, because that’s how we reconnected. So in a way, it’s like another anniversary (LOL).
I look forward to spending so many more birthdays with you & continuing to create great memories. Thank you for being you & loving me the way that you do.
