Our Love Is Magic (a love letter)

It didn't take long to fall hard and deep. Not the scrapped, red and bloody knee-type of falling but the falling into heaven's clouds. At that moment we met, we understood each other, we were unblemished in each other's sight, and quickly became inseparable. I don't remember the exact moment when I knew and it doesn't even matter, but you were the one. We traded every part of our souls, even the broken pieces, because we knew that the other held the healing salve for our lives.

They say opposites attract — this is true. Though we've come from very different backgrounds it gives us a strength like no other. As the years continue to gather, we weave more together as one, unsure of where one starts and the other ends. Soulmates. It is not our goal to become one another, but to recognize each other. Playing as witness to each other's life.


"...in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things...all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness'." Shall We Dance (2004)


They say having a baby changes things. It does. It has propelled me unfathomably further in love with you. As I look at our son, I plunge deeper in love with every part of you, the man who made me a mama. You are a faithful, honest, kind and good man. You are the answer to every question my heart could ask.

I am so thankful for everything. Every graduation. Every fight. Every mortgage bill. Every dirty dish. Every illness. Every birthday celebration. Every vacation. Every ordinary day together. Because it all has woven us tighter together.

Nick, thank you for taking a chance on me. I know every day is not easy, but by the art of committment you continue to be my soulmate. I could never live without you. I love you in untold ways, you've cast a spell over my heart and our love is magic. What a gift of a lifetime. You and I have journeyed the path of rocky roads and have swam in the sparkling blue, but the constant always has been you. Our love may be old but renews forever. Beauty arises and my soul is satisfied.

Life is a journey, and I have chosen well with whom I travel alongside. Together let's leave a beautiful history for our family, a legacy of deep and true love, a marriage to inspire and encourage. Thank you for helping me discover the greatest joy of life.
