a letter to my husband

I love when you ask me for help with your words. I love that you help me when I ask. I love your eyes. I love that you’re Latino. I love that Spanish is your first language. I love that you play the guitar. I love when you try to sing. I love that you’re athletic. I love that you’ll try anything once. I love that you’re handy with anything around the house. I love your love for God.

I love you even when you’re in a bad mood. I still love you when you don’t do the dishes. Even when we argue, I love you. I love that you’re able to see the big picture. I love your self confidence. I love that we sing together. I love spending time with you.

All I could ever ask for is a happy life with you. It doesn’t matter where, it doesn’t matter the circumstances. As long as we’re together I’ll be happy.

I needed to stop for a second to breathe and take in this moment. I never want to forget this part of our lives…gardening, traveling, barbequeing in the backyard, working, playing, being together. I can’t believe we’ve been together three years; it honestly feels like yesterday that we met. I remember seeing you for the very first time. I remember our first date to the movies ("I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry"). I remember our first vacation together in Miami. My first trip to visit you in Costa Rica. The day you proposed. Our wedding. The last three years have flown by so quickly.
I am so proud of how far we’ve come together and I am so excited about the rest of our lives. I want to make a conscious effort to live in the moment and not spend so much time thinking about the future.

We were from two different countries, two completely different worlds, and God found a way to bring us together. To say it was meant to be is a huge understatement.

I will love you forever.
