My Dearest Love,
It was barely over two years ago when I received that sweet email - the one where you described yourself as "devilishly charming" and having a "contagious smile". At once I knew that we would hit it off. When we talked on the phone, and you laughed....I was sure that I wanted to meet you. When you pulled up in my driveway and smiled your amazing smile, I knew that you were someone extremely special. And when we were talking over dinner, hitting golf balls into the lake and starting little forest fires, I knew that we were meant to take a long journey together.
You astounded me with your confidence and intelligence (aside from how incredibly handsome you were - and still are!!). I loved hearing your opinions on politics, religion, food, everything! I loved hearing you talk about your family. I was so impressed by the close relationship you have with your parents and that your long-term goals included a family. I was incredibly impressed by your artistic talents! I was smitten from the beginning!!
When you danced with me on the bridge and we told each other that we loved each other - my heart almost exploded! I didn't think I could be happier!!!
Then it happened - you asked me to be your wife! I was so excited! I felt so humbled that you would want me to be your eternal companion - you who are so wonderful!
Our wedding day was a blur of magic and happiness! I remember feeling like I was floating because I knew that we officially belonged to each other forever!
It has been exactly two years since that day, and while we have had our share of ups and downs, I can honestly say that these past two years have been the happiest of my life.
You are my best friend. I love talking your ear off about everything that I am thinking and then turning around and listening to you tell me everything that you are thinking! It's amazing how after 2 whole years, we haven't run out of stuff to say!
I feel like every day brings us closer. Just when I don't think I could love you any more, that love increases and I am not sure that my body can contain it!!!
Jon, you mean the entire world to me. I am so grateful for the man that you are and the wonderful husband you are to me. I am so grateful and proud of the hard work you are putting in to school and work. I know it gets stressful, but you are smart, that you breeze right through it and do a wonderful job on everything you do!!!
I love you, I love you, I love you forever!
Thank you for the most amazing two years of my life - I look forward to a million more with you!
