In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I thought it would be only wonderfully and perfectly fitting to write a little love note to the love of my life, my sweet and funny Neal. Buckle up friends, this is a mushy-love filled post.
To my Neal,
4 years ago today we celebrated our love story in front of family and friends. We laughed. We danced. We celebrated. The day was filled with beautiful emotions from start to finish, and even though many details are a bit of a blur… I clearly remember how I felt: loved, excited, complete and wonderfully overwhelmed.
Since then, life has given us twists and turns, up and downs, triumphs and frustrations. There have been moments that have been wonderful and simply marvellous. Moments that I wanted to freeze in time. Moments I will want to remember for years to come. Then there were moments have been exhausting and frustrating and damn right challenging.
Getting married, and then making a big ol’ international move hasn’t been easy. There have been learning curves between us both and I know that there is a lifetime of learning in front of us.
And that’s okay. In fact, it’s better than okay. That’s what I’ve signed up for: a lifetime. A lifetime of learning and loving. A lifetime of laughing and challenges. A lifetime of adventures and memories.
And as we’ve walked side by side over the past four years together, I love you more than I did when we got married or when we first met. I love you more as I understand the depth of your character, the strength of your vision and how you interpret the world. As I see the way you care for finding solutions or the daily thoughtfulness that I never want to take for granted. The love is there.
And I’ll be honest, every single day I feel like I am the lucky one. To have you by my side, to laugh with, to face challenges with, to grow stronger with…
And many times, I feel like I don’t say ‘thank you’ enough. ‘Thank you’ for your love and patience (even when I drive you crazy). Thank you for humoring me with my crazy ideas and thank you for giving me the support, even when I don’t ask for it. A million times over, thank you.
So here’s to our adventures on the horizon, and may we keep learning more about one another and further grow into love.
