a love letter to my almost-husband.

jeffrey+roxanne

Dear Jeffrey,

I got so lucky when I found you, my match.
I am so thankful that you came at just the right time...that our love story started no sooner or no later than it did. Timing like that is certainly orchestrated from above.
After five and a half years, you still look at me like I'm the most beautiful girl in the room. I know you'll still do that 60 years from now.
Thanks for telling me everyday that you are proud of me...for actually stopping me in my tracks, holding my shoulders, and looking me straight in my eyes to send that little message of encouragement. It means so much to me.
Thank you for still dating me, pursuing me. I love going on dates with you.
I am so appreciative that you help me not to worry about everything. That you tell me to stop and take one deep breath because it will all be okay. Sometimes you just stop me in the middle of the house and hug me. Sometimes I am rushed or impatient about it. Thanks for hugging me anyway.
Thanks for helping me to be a better person, for always challenging me to be better.
And sometimes, when I need that little bit of tough love, I thank you for being strong enough to give that to me. For reminding me that I am better than that and for not accepting any less.
Sometimes I look at you or think about you and wonder how this could all even be possible. How is it that I got you, the one person made solely for me? It warms my heart to even contemplate it a little, little bit.
You are you and I am me and we are for each other. It is my favorite feeling in all the world. Marriage to you will be so sweet.

Yours, Always,
R.
