Are these good? Weird? Touching? What do you guys think?
When I was looking through our old pictures, I was struck by the changes I saw in myself since our first days together. It’s as if they were tangible evidence of what I already knew: I’m a more peaceful, more secure, and genuinely happier person than I was before I met you.
Of course, those pictures only tell part of the story. They don’t show the days when we’ve hit hurdles or stumbled upon an uncertain path. But those moments have been important, too. In them, you’ve shown me the power of partnership, the importance of humor, and most of all, the safety of going through life with a soul mate.
And so, today, I promise to remember all that you’ve helped me become, and to always do the same for you.
I promise to always kiss you goodnight;
To be your partner, even when there are no words or solutions;
To laugh with you every day;
To dream big, even when all we have is frozen egg rolls and a partially-drywalled kitchen;
And to love like we’re young, even when we’re eighty.
