I love your openness to change and go-with-the-flow attitude. To you life isn’t a static timeline with boxes to be checked, but rather a winding journey where the adventure is often in the unknown, and the only constant is staying true to oneself and treating others kindly. There is a freedom in that perspective that I cherish.
I love your sense of humor and quirks. You make me laugh every single day, and you’re also quick to laugh at yourself, which is good because I can’t help but poke fun of your love of British television, extreme skinny jeans, and “authentic” California burritos.
I love your optimism most of all. Your relentlessly positive attitude is a buoy I’ve come to rely on and a big contributor to a less grumpy me and a less grumpy world.
I love all these aspects but more importantly love the whole, and promise to cherish you, so long as I live.
I love how honest you are with yourself, and your commitment to be honest with others, even in the toughest of moments. I believe this is called strength of character. You have any uncanny ability to stay focused and stay weird, because you know what kind of life you want to lead, and the people you want to surround yourself with. I’m so lucky to be a part of it.
I love your adventurous spirit. Your curiosity to learn and live life to its fullest energizes me – it makes me also want to know the difference between a llama and an alpaca, and more importantly – whether we can adopt one. I love the daily reminder when I come home every day and see your smiling face. This is a reminder to me of your open heart and the life we want to create together. I try every day to match your commitment to a truly equal partnership.
I love all of these aspects but more importantly love the whole, and promise to cherish you, so long as I live.
