“Hey I know this is probably really random but do you want to grab some coffee some time with me?”
That was the start of something I don’t think either of us were planning. I don’t even drink coffee but after I opened that message I thought “I’ll chug a venti dark roast just to sit across from you.” Cause, let’s be real, you are super cute. Timing wasn’t exactly on our side and it wasn’t until late September that we had out first date. Top Golf, Bahama Bucks and a movie at iPic then we found ourselves on a fourth date where you (finally) kissed me.
Things snowballed quickly from there. It is like the John Green quote “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” It started with reconnecting through facebook, then texting every day, then a few back to back dates and I found myself completely and utterly infatuated with you. Our love has taken us around the world and there is nobody I would rather spend my days with, no matter where we are.
I never imagined there was someone in this world that would love me so unconditionally through every good and bad moment in this life. I never imagined there was someone I would want to spend all day every day with and share every memory with. I never imagined it because I never knew there was someone in the world like you. You are kind, funny, compassionate, loving, smart, hard-working and my absolute best friend.
Thank you for the moments filled with laughter and joy. Thank you for being by my side through the tears and hard times. Thank you for the amazing adventures.Thank you for letting me into your heart and sharing your life with me. Thank you for being my boyfriend.
Payson, Arizona. Anaheim, California. Loreto, Mexico. New York City. Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima, Japan. Chicago, Illinois. And now back home to Phoenix.
You are the Anger to my Sadness, the over-easy eggs to my extra crispy hash-browns, the Mickey to my Minnie.
I love you more than all the stars and all the moons in all the sky.
Update : See another anniversary post here!
