> See, the people who have known me forever know me as calculated, analytical, practical, sensible, but when I moved to California that all changed a bit. I learned to become more spontaneous, to take what is thrown at me, and to continually seek out new extremes. Then I met you, and while we still go on fabulous adventures together, I love you most because you brought me back to a part of myself id been missing for a very long time. Over the last three years I’ve excelled because you’ve taught me to think things through, to be patient, to calm down, to consider. Consider not only myself and my own goals but those of others. NAME, I know you like to fool everyone with antics, but you truly are the most kind-hearted, thoughtful person I know putting people you don’t even know before yourself. In ways that I cannot explain, you’ve taught me to truly be a better person and that is a skill that will set the foundation for our life together.
A few months ago this entire area was engulfed in the flames of a forest fire. I was a wreck. You were calm and calculated. I know it won’t be the only fire our relationship faces. But w,ith you by my side, seeing the bright skies through the smoke will be much easier.
> I promise to use that power and to help you do the same. I promise to love you, not only with words but with actions. To support you and cherish you To protect you from late night peanut butter cravings and to encourage all your storytelling. I promise to watch movie marathons of whatever genre you happen to be studying and to take long walks with you so you can work out your ideas. I promise to be your teammate, your best friend and, as your adventure buddy, and… I promise to push you to extremes (as long as you keep pulling me back to earth.) Rain, sun, forest fire…I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring but I can tell you this much it’s going to be awesome. A spontaneous, yet thoughtful adventure. From the mountains to the ocean and back, forever and ever, I love you.
