“As with any journey, who you travel with is often more important than the destination.”
I’m so grateful that I am who you’ve chosen to do life with. You are without a doubt, my best friend, with whom I can share anything and everything with. The good, the bad, and even the ugly… we take it all head-on… and somehow seem to come out on the other side even stronger. I know we always will.
Our First Date!
We met at a time in our lives when neither of us was looking for love. Hours of conversation and laughter later… we found something even better than that. We found a connection, a spark… we found that while looking at one another the rest of the world just seemed to fade out of sight. We were friends, first and foremost. A foundation that was worth building upon.
“I wasn’t a burden in his eyes, I was a bonus.”
This was my favorite page to make of the entire scrapbook. Watching yours and Bryson’s relationship grow is one of the most precious memories I have.
Blue Ridge for your Birthday
I remember us getting to the parkway and turning off… you said “This is it?” I thought oh no, it’s not enough, he hates it. But I hadn’t realized just yet what you’d meant by that. You were so excited. The entire trip went smoothly, even when I’d get lost and expect you to go nuts, you were so patient. I fell in love with you a zillon times this weekend.
…and then there was this…
We had so much fun! To think you’d never been to a zoo.
“Any day at the beach is beautiful… but ours are my favorite.”
And then there was some of this…
And then our FAVORITE time of the year…
“Life with you makes perfect sense, you’re my best friend.”
From surgery, to job losses, and moving… we’ve faced quite a bit this year and it’s flown by. Here’s to hoping this next one does too, because our journey has only just begun…
We’re going to Ireland!!
Happy 38th Birthday, baby! With love beyond measure!
