6 years ago, it was difficult to think we would end up here since we absolutely hated working with each other. Since we got together, I’ve learned a lot. You’ve introduced me to new things, you inspired me to rediscover drawing and learn painting, you made me start reading, you made me want to stay awake throughout a movie and made me eat more. But more importantly, you gave me a different perspective on life and love. I’d like you to know that because of you, I have learned to love unconditionally.
I LOVE YOU FOREVER. Today, these words that we always say to each other will be even more meaningful because this day marks the start of our forever. I promise to laugh with you when times are good and to just be there and hold your hand when they are bad. I promise to take care of you even when we’re old and grey. And most of all, I promise to continue being your friend and to love you even more for the rest of our lives.
Wella, my love, my life, my story
Writing is always a lonely task
Which is why I am so happy, so blessed to now have you as my co-plotter, co-editor, and co-writer
I know that “happily ever afters” are not found in first drafts
I know that it will take numerous revisions before we reach ours
And so I vow:
that even during life’s brightest days and blackest nights
when we are surprised by plot twists and cliffhangers
I will --with all my might—
rewrite and redirect our story towards our happy ending.
And this is the story I will write for the rest of my life.
