Man I just love you.
I think about it all the time, that has to be a good sign right? Like I’ll just be sitting here at work and my mind will wander to you and all the great things about you and all the reasons why you’re a good dad and a good person and why I just LOVE YOU. It happens all the time.
Especially in the springtime.
Portland in the spring will always remind me of you. That’s a pretty big compliment because DAMN Portland in the spring is just magical.
It has been five years since we got together and I still remember every little flutter in my belly, every look we shared, every word you said- its like the anticipation of a new relationship about to begin is forever linked in my mind to the anticipation of the new spring season. At this point I don’t think I’ll ever forget.
I remember all the things that first attracted me to you. Your confidence, your pretty eyes, your endless knowledge on pretty much everything, your ability to give 0 fucks. Except when it came to me. Then you were vulnerable, sweet and gave a lot of fucks. So then I loved you more and it has kind of progressed like that for years now. I think every year that goes by I find new things to love about you. I just love that. That after all the changes our lives go through our relationship adapts and stays just as great but in different ways.
Now I love the way you are such an involved and caring parent, how our priorities and goals always line up, how you constantly support me even when sometimes I’ve already given up, how you work so hard for our family and us.
I’m just so happy with us. Like how you could give me any situation in the world and the person I would want to have with me is always going to be you.
I always knew we would work,
Happy five years darling.
We got a rock salt lamp for our dresser that naturally purifies air and looks cute but lil boys just wanna lick it 😝
