a mere two years ago, it was january 14, 2010, and my boyfriend and i were galivanting through the streets of charleston, south carolina, on a romantic getaway for just the two of us. little did i know that i was going to get asked the question every girl dreams of hearing from the time she is a little girl…
two years ago on this day, jeff asked me to be his wife, and i screamed with delight and answered a giddy little yes.
after crying tears of joy and screaming with excitement, my beau whisked me back to the b&b where we were staying so the fun calling of family and friends could commence…but, this southern gentleman had plans of his own when he had plotted for months to have my parents, his mom, and my best friend and her fiance join in on the fun festivities.
i can’t help but look back on that day with joy and a smile that just won’t fade away-that was the day of the start of so many exciting things in my life…it was the beginning of something more than i could ever imagine, just 22 days before we moved in together and 514 days until we said “i do”.
things haven’t always been easy, things haven’t always been perfect, but nothing in life comes free, and i wouldn’t change one single decision i made about marrying you, jeff. i love you more and more each and every day and i pray that god continues to bless our marriage, our future, and most of all the little angel coming into our world soon.
thank you for being the man i always dreamed of, my absolute best friend. thank you for being you.
i love you now, and i’ll love you always. OXOX
