Today isn’t our anniversary, nothing signifigant is going on today but I am overwhelmed with love for you. When you kissed me goodbye this morning, I wanted to stay frozen in that moment. You will never know how grateful I am to have met you June 22, 1996. I remember our first date, and subsequently, our first kiss like it was yesterday. That first kiss made my knees turn to jelly. It was so sweet and innocent and I love you for that gentleness. 14 years later l still get butterflies when I kiss you. You are such an incredible person, and I adore you for more than your amazing gift for art, your clever wit but for your quirkyness, kindness and compassion. I like to think about the moment when you took my hand on our wedding day. I can’t believe how calm I felt on the outside but inside I was jumping up and down like I won the lottery. I can’t believe how much we have been through during our relationship. We have a beautiful daughter. You are an amazing husband and father. Olivia is such a happy baby and that’s because when I was pregnant you would tell her how much you loved her all the time. Ever since the birth of our daughter I feel like I no longer have to sweat the small stuff. I feel like we are a strong team but we are incomplete without each other. My wish for Olivia is to become a sweet and generous person like her Dad. I have the family I have always dreamed of. Thank you for giving me love. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for constantly forgiving me and allowing me the opportunity to be a better person. I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you. You are an extraordinary person and I want you to know I love you in a seriously gay way!!
