It’s BEEN two years but it most certainly doesn’t FEEL as though it’s been two years.
“How do you feel about moving to Michigan?”
And then we did.
I would do absolutely anything for my beautiful wife. This past year found us moving halfway across the country to a state that neither of us had ever been to with no preconceived notion of what it would be like. But, we held each other’s hand and took that leap into the unknown. I knew how serious my wife was about following her dreams since she’d be leaving behind her family and I was absolutely willing to do anything I could to help her achieve that dream. So we packed up the U-Haul, the dog, and ourselves and we settled down in the Mitten.
There is no one else in this world with whom I would have rather had this experience.
I have an indescribable amount of pride in my wife for the challenges she’s faced and conquered so far. She inspires me to be a better person in everything I do (and sometimes that inspiration comes in the form of lists of things to do for the day). We rely on one another to keep our sanity in this crazy world and we confide in one another about everything that happens to us throughout every day.
I love how you laugh at all of my jokes (good and crappy ones alike).
I love how you don’t care how many tattoos I have/get.
I love that you are so driven in everything you do.
I love that you need to make a list for everything (yes, even the lists you make for me).
I love watching terrible TV with you and pretending I don’t like it but I’m just as caught up in the story lines as you.
I love being able to kiss you goodnight every night.
I love that you wake me up (before you go, go?) when you go to work to say goodbye to me.
I love that I don’t have to be self-conscious around you (this is mainly about being gassy…true love ladies and gents).
I love how you look at me sometimes and don’t say anything but just start smiling (I know what you’re thinking).
I love that I DO know what you’re thinking most times.
I love that you’re my family.
And Ashly, I love that you are truly my best friend because I am better for that fact.
I will always be here for you.
I love you.
