Do you remember when we used to write each other love letters? It was normally during special occasions, like birthdays, Christmases or Valentine’s Day.
The last love letter we wrote to each other was 730 days ago. It was June 17, 2017, the day we were wed. I thought we were due for another.
Our life has been a crazy roller coaster since that day, with no signs of slowing down.
We got married, quickly moved to another state, and then another. We had a baby, changed jobs and formed new dreams.
But with the craziness, there has been happiness. A happiness I never thought I would have. I believed I was destined to the ill fate like my many close family members: that of divorce, hurt and pain.
Then there was you. A fun loving, good ole Catholic boy, with a heart of pure gold. I was a wild soul, or what we now call a “free spirit” who saw the world in a different view.
We came together and created something beautiful. Not only a precious baby girl, but a beautiful life. It’s the simple life I always craved growing up, and now I get to live it.
You have given me more than you will ever know. You gave me faith, friendship, love and a place to call home, in your arms. Plus so much more.
With this thanks I give you I also want to give my apologies. I am sorry for the times when it seems as though I am unappreciative or moody. For the times when I haven’t been there for you in the best way possible.
Thank you for loving me through these imperfections and always choosing to see the good.
Thank you for supporting me in every decision I make and for chasing my dreams with me.
Thank you for being my partner in this insane parenting journey, and for being the best father to our daughter.
Thank you for saying “I do” 730 days ago. You saved my life that day, and have continued to save my life everyday since then.
And lastly, thank you for making every day like a love letter. We might be too busy with life to write them, but I know we are living out the words we have always written.
With so much love,
