You’re my favorite

Four years ago today, my life changed. I walked down a very long aisle, in my favorite dress, to meet you, my favorite man. We danced under the cafe lights that day, with huge smiles plastered across our faces not knowing where life would take us. All we knew was that we’d be together on this journey. Since then, you have become my husband. The one who teaches me about life and love. The one who is a pillar of hard work and strength and patience. You comfort me before my tears fall and encourage me when I have doubts. You hold my hand as we explore the world together and reel me back in when you know I’ve jumped too far ahead.

Over the last few weeks, you have been my rock, moreso than ever. You are the constant source of those deep embraces and positive talks of reassurance I crave. And let’s not forget your quick wit that keeps me on my toes and smiling. I can say, without hesitation – you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you for making me your wife and for choosing to love me every single day.  It’s my honor to do the same for you, for all of my days. Ti amo, B. Bene, bene, bene…
