The screeching tonight at dinner had us all kinds of overloaded.
So many words from so many beautiful faces.
Attempting to follow the rollercoaster of feelings each one was emoting,
in that moment you looked at me and said “four years ago tonight if we had known…”
No truer words spoken.
If we had known of all the growing to take place, would we have stood in front of the alter arms outstretched?
If it had been foretold, the broken nights, the feeling of the free fall, would we have danced until our feet swelled?
I didn’t want to wander any longer. I had found my home in your arms.
And so here we are.
The tears, the laughter, the noise, four years in and still making sense of how to navigate these roads.
Your love has brought me closer to who I am meant to be.
I am bolder. I am humbler.
I have emerged from a deep, dark valley and with your help found a way back to my soul.
I wouldn’t trade a second of these last 35,040 hours.
The next year will mark more transitions but this I know- with your love, your guiding light, home will feel brighter and my life lighter.
Thank you for your yes.
It was always you.
All my love,
PS- What more could be said then this?
