It's been half a decade of love between us and I'm blown away by how much I continue to fall deeper and more madly for you as each year rolls by.
Do you remember the first time we hung out? The time you drove over and picked me up the night before my birthday? I was sad and had been crying and I was telling you all about it over msn when you told me to stay put, that you were coming by. We went for ice-cream that night and we drove around our local streets talking for hours before pulling up in front of my house where we waited until midnight so you could wish me happy birthday.
We were just friends then. We didn't have any feelings for each other. We barely even knew each other but something that night sparked a light in my heart and I couldn't let you go from then on.
I still can't let you go.
Thank you for loving me with all that you have. Thank you for loving God more deeply than anyone I know. I'm so unbelievably lucky and it scares me to think how much of my heart lies with you.
We have so much more life to live together. SO much more. It excites me and makes me smile and laugh like a little girl when I think about it. You literally make me feel like a high schooler, the butterflies still haven't gone away and I hope they never do.
I love you Stephen. Happy 5 year anniversary xx
