Saying Our Vows: An Open Letter

This week I've been going over and over on what I wanted to post about in my Saying Our Vows post this week.  As I've said, I took a bit of a wedding planning hiatus over the holidays to really enjoy this time of being engaged.  After debating back and forth, I finally decided what I wanted to post today.  With it being the holidays this weekend and thinking about how thankful I am for all the blessings in my life, I wanted to be able to thank the person that has really allowed me to be who I am... my fiancé.

Dear Brandon,

It seems impossible to tell you how much you mean to me.  After all, you've been the person who has made me realize who I am, helped me bring that person out, and loved every bit of me.  The real me.  Since I've met you you've let me believe that I'm beautiful, intelligent, and funny, and I really did believe you.  I've been able to grow into who I wanted to be with you standing beside me every step of the way.  The way that you believe in me is the most wonderful feeling in the world.  I truly feel now that I can do anything I put my mind to and you will always be there to back me up.

You are the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful, and intelligent man I know.  Sitting at home with you laughing at a tv show is one of my favorite things to do.  Talking to you and listening to the way your mind works makes me love you more and more every day.  The thought that you chose ME to spend the rest of your life with makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.  Every time I look down at my ring and think about the work and love that you put into finding it just makes me smile and know that I have truly found the right person.  You are my best friend, my favorite person, and my true partner.  I am so excited to be taking this journey with you and I look forward to each and every day spent with you.

I love you with everything that I am and hope to be,

{Ps.  I know you're probably embarrassed now since you're not one for public displays of affection, and that's ok.  Forgive me?}

{New Years Day just so happens to be our 3 year anniversary so that's another reason I'm feeling extra loved up.}

To My Readers: If you're still with me and haven't gagged from the over-mushiness, thank you for sticking with me.  I'm excited to resume wedding planning after the New Year and to share it all with you.  I so much appreciate your support already and hope that you'll continue reading.

That is great that you're taking a break from the wedding planning. Although wonderful and exciting, it can be so stressful.

Very similar to my death letter to AC before my surgery. Very touching.

First, I'd like some photo credits for the 2nd photo.
Next, as someone that has been there for the entire ride, I can honestly say what you have is a beautiful thing. Secrets, "shwshwhw", fun, laughter, a call to both of you on whether a certain boy should come over, only to have Brandon call back and be my big brother, Big Boy (with the tranny), IHOP, fueling my love for a local musician, tears and some very sad moments that even a kitty dance couldn't fix. I love you both.
