A Love Letter Series


Someday we'll tell them...

The "story." The one that sets my heart of fire. The one that we'll tell over and over again until the words become one with our breath and the details become hazy. We'll exaggerate and correct and roll our eyes, but never stop loving. Never will we stop loving. 

We'll tell them how we first met.
And how you learned that song for me before I ever knew your last name. 

We'll tell them how we were strictly friends, but slowly it blossomed into so much more. How we couldn't stop thinking about each other. How we couldn't stop making each other laugh. And how we just couldn't ignore the feelings. The time(s) we almost gave up. We'll share with them how obstacle after obstacle was thrown our way, but we ended up triumphant. Because the truest of loves is always triumphant, and so are we. We'll teach them the importance of perseverance and to never give up. 

We'll probably let them know how God works in quiet but confident ways. What a beautiful miracle it was to stumble upon someone who instantly clicked with me and was able to tell me everything and anything, and vice versa. Everyone always teaches that you don't find "the" one, but rather, "a" one. Well kids, I strongly beg to differ. There is absolutely no one else who could lift me higher, or be a better companion, or make me love life quite as much as he does. I'll tell them how he is my perfect fit and they will find theirs with time. Don't get discouraged (like I did) and don't go searching or clinging to things that have no future (like I did). 

I'll tell them all most of the reasons I love him. For his kindness. His patience. His hotness/handsomeness. His goodness. His love for his mama. His love for me. And his love for them.

And he'll sing for them. 
Because when he sings, you can't help but fall deep in love with him and those beautiful green eyes.

I'll tell them that marrying him was one of the best decisions I've ever made because without him there would be no them. 

05.10.2013. I can't think of a happier day.

Sending my Jacob endless love from California.
