A letter to the love of my life

Sean,
 
9 years ago today I was having a sleepover with one of my good friends. We were only 14 years old, had no worries in the world, and were giggling the night away. We decided it would be a great idea to prank phone call some people from school....that's when your name came up. I didn't know who you were, so I was game to give you a call....little did I know I was about to talk to my future husband.
 
I remember instantly thinking you were so fun to talk to, not to mention you sounded SUPER cute :) We talked all night, and you even ended up asking me to be your girlfriend. I had never even met you, but I knew that I wanted to get to know you more so I said YES! Best decision of my life right there...
 
I remember being SO excited to meet you at school on Monday. We had talked all weekend getting to know eachother more, I felt like you had been in my life for years. Finally I was there, waiting for you by the lockers...I remember you had the most amazing smile and dimples, and you had this long curly hair that was to die for...boy did I have the butterflys! Passing time was so short so we gave eachother a quick hug and were on our way...I am pretty sure I smiled all day long!
 



 
I remember always getting so excited for your phone calls, our date nights to the movies (where our parents dropped us off haha) and when you would ride my bus home to hang out. I didn't know what love was or how it felt, but I did know you were something special....and every time I was with you nothing else mattered in the world. You were taking my heart....I was scared, but I wouldn't have had it any other way.
 



 
High school was full of it's ups and downs. You got a LOT of crap from the guys for not dating around, and I delt with jealousy and felt very vulnerable. We also hit so many milestones during these 4 years...getting our license (YOU could actually pick me up), having the freedom to go where we wanted, getting our first jobs, our first cabin trip and overnight together and of course prom and graduation. I remember always wanting to be with you...all the time just you and I.

 



 
We were falling in love more and more every day. I had never had someone I felt so close to or so comfortable with. You were my BEST friend, my protector, my rock, my everything. I remember you always putting me and my feelings first, and you were always so sweet and caring through tough patches in our lives.
 






Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for blessing me with you when I was 14. You have helped make me the woman I am today, and I will be forever grateful for that. Not many people can say they they have grown up with their husbands, literally, graduated from both high school and college together, and have been together for 9 years when we are only 23. I'm pretty proud of that :)






 
Not only am I not scared of what the future may hold...but I am excited for it. I know there will be hard times we encounter, I know everything is not and will not be all sunshine and rainbows...but as long as I am with you everything will be good....more than good actually, it will be perfect. I know you will continue to make me laugh, love, and be a better person.
 




My love for you grows more and more every day. I am so proud of the man you have become, and the things you continue to amaze me with. I don't know what I did to deserve you and to be blessed with such an incredible bond and relationship. You are one in a million babe, and I will NEVER not for one second take you for granted.
 
Thank you for your unconditional love and support even through my mistakes and low times.
Thank you for always cooking for me (because I suck at it) and never letting me fall asleep without you by my side (even when your not tired). Thank you for putting up with my mood swings and making me laugh at myself when I am being crazy/emotional/unreasonable. Thank you for asking me to be your wife...this is the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I love you Sean Patrick with all of my heart and soul. I cannot wait to see the incredible things our future holds for us.
 




Love,
 
Your wife :)

What a terribly sweet love story! You realize that one day you're going to be able to tell your grandchildren how you met and it's going to be a story that's passed down. I'm a little jealous!
