Today, I have loved you for 1825 days. We have shared so many adventures together, and even though they weren't all good and happy ones, they still shaped our relationship and helped us grow.. I always thought it would be difficult to find someone who would love me when it feels like I'm always scattered in a thousand pieces. It's like trying to complete a puzzle without knowing if all the right pieces are there.. but then you showed me that every piece doesn't have to be in place to create something beautiful.. that love can exist in the most imperfect person.. From the moment our paths crossed, you've surprised me, distracted me, captivated me and challenged me in a way that no human being ever has. I've fallen in love with you again and again, countless times, without reservation. And I will keep falling in love with you as the years go by.
Lifelong commitment is not what everyone thinks it is. It's not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It's not a clean home and a homemade meal every day.
It's someone who steals all the covers or snores like a chainsaw. It's sometimes slammed doors, and a few harsh words, disagreeing, and the silent treatment until your hearts heal. Then...forgiveness!
It's coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you, in spite of and because of who you are. It's laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. It's about dirty laundry and unmade beds without finger pointing. It's about helping each other with the hard work of life! It's about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud.
It's about eating the cheapest and easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10 p.m. to eat because you both had a crazy day. It's when you have an emotional breakdown, and your love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It's when "Netflix and Chill" literally means you watch Netflix and hang out. It's about still loving someone even though sometimes they make you absolutely insane, angry, and hurt your feelings. Who loves you for fat or thin, happy or grumpy, young or old.
Living with the person you love is not perfect, and sometimes it's hard, but it's amazing, comforting, and one of the best things you'll ever experience. #mcm#appreciationpost#lovehim#fiance#soontobemrandmrs#hunnersandbunners#truths
