happy valentine’s day, love!

“the very first  moment i beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.” – jane austen

we met when i was just 18, and you were 21 (cradle robber ;)).

it was my first time at college group, and you know how i am at first times.  and groups.  but as soon as we met you swooped in and scooped me up and made me feel welcomed and, well…  loved, immediately.

its who you are, its what you do.  you are that magical person that people gravitate towards. you are welcoming and loving and uplifting and encouraging.  you are that guy that everyone wants to be like someday.

you are a good friend.  you are my best friend, the person i want to tell every little detail of every little thing to – and thanks for letting me.  but you are also a good friend to others.  you care and connect and are purposeful.  such a good example to me.

i love how we can speak in movie lines to each other.  and its still funny.

you get me.  you know me.  you challenge me. you love me.

i love that you are gentle with your words, but strong with the meaning behind them, holding firm to what you know is right.

ok, that’s enough, i know!

just know that you are the most precious gift i have ever been given and i will always consider you as that.  i look forward to growing old(er) with you and watching our lives and our kid’s lives change, and watching the effect you have on them and how you mold and make them into loving and amazing kids… just like you!

    SO Sweet!
    Glad you have such a wonderful hubby.
    I also like the part where you talk in movie lines to each other. I wish me and my hubby could be that cute but I can’t remember movie lines to save my life. ;)

    What a heartwarming message. As a Mom I prayed that Sean would find a Godly and perfect mate for him. What an answer to prayer. We are blessed to have you in our family and the amazing couple and parents that you are. Love you all. Happy Valentines Day. (Hope you got the package in time).
