Dear future husband,
I’ve spent a good portion of my life watching romantic movies and reading novels based on romance. When I was in the seventh grade, I would stay up really late on school nights, reading the “Twilight’ saga. I would constantly daydream about my own personal ‘Edward Cullen.’ I loved the way he loved Bella, unconditionally and irrevocably. You know, I think about you quite often. I imagine us spending every Christmas together for the rest of our lives. Sitting by the fireplace, drinking hot cocoa, watching the snow fall. I dream about traveling and seeing the world with you. Wine tasting at vineyards in the South of France, Standing on a balcony underneath the stars in Morocco with you. I long for rainy nights of jazz music and wine. Or talking for hours about everything and nothing at all. Laughing till tears stream down our cheeks, Thanksgiving dinners with our family, putting up our Christmas tree every year with our most valuable ornaments. Keeping old traditions alive and well, and making new ones along the way. Slow dancing, plenty of slow dancing to Sinatra. I look forward to watching the sunrise at the beach with you. Committing to making a decision to love you regardless of any circumstance, in sickness and in health. To never stop getting to know you, every single day. I won’t promise you that I’ll never fail you because I’d be lying. However, I’ll admit my wrongs and I won’t give up on you. See, that’s the thing about me that you’ll soon realize. I don’t give up rather easily, especially when it comes to the people I love. I hope you’re ready for romantic, cheesy movies. Me, quoting Shakespeare out of the blue, writing you letters wherever you are in the world. Even when you’re sleeping right next to me. I’m a hopeless romantic indeed, and that’ll never change. I’m not naive. I know it won’t always be good. However, I will always stay. The darkest moments in my life set me up to trust in our God. When it feels like we’re drowning, we have a lifeline in heaven. For as long as we promise to maintain our Savior in the center of our marriage, he will never fail us or lead us astray. I want you to know that I pray for you often. I ask our Heavenly Father to protect you, to guide your every step, and to continue to set you apart. I trust him blindly, that I know in his perfect timing, we will be together. Until then, life doesn’t stop. I hope you’re healthy, happy, and well.
Until next time with all my love,
