Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, little future wife.
I hope all is well.
I also hope that you get your gorgeous head out of your stunning butt and get here soon.
Just as an FYI, I may the the only dude you know who gets all excited and “awwwwwwwwwww” over online wedding proposal videos.
If you send me links for them, I’ll watch every one.
I love romance. I love cleverness. I love happily ever afters.
I’m just a sucker for them.
“Wait. What? My eyes? It’s allergies!”
I should also admit that when I watch the videos, I feel a little competitive.
I want my proposal to you to be EPIC.
I really, really do.
And not because I like showing off how impossibly clever and creative I am. Though I do. And I am.
It’s because it’s like a final exam. How well do I know you? Did I pay attention? Do I know what matters to you?
Can I come up with something meaningful, sweet, and absolutely perfect for one of our biggest days together? (Yes. Yes I can.)
I want you to just know.
Because I’ll know.
I’ll know that there is no one else, nowhere else on the planet who’ll be a better fit for me as a partner, best-friend or teammate.
I’ll know that I waited for my other half. I didn’t settle. I didn’t go for “good on paper.” I worked, fought for, and held out for you.
And I’ll know that you don’t remember the ones that made a big entrance. And you don’t really remember the ones who slam the door on their way out. You remember the ones who wear out a path around your heart with soft steps and almost involuntary dancing.
It’s probably not wise to tell you this, but I had one planned once. A proposal. Well 90% planned. I was still working on the details. And it would have been hard to pull off. But, man… it was something.
And I’m going to make yours so sooooooo much better.
Because it’s you.
You’re going to cry. You’re going to hug and squeeze me so hard. You’re going to wonder who to call first. You’re going to wipe your eyes and nose on the front of my (most likely plaid) shirt. You’re going to ask how I managed to do it. You’re going to know that I’ll never tell. You’re going to feel fully and completely loved and understood to your very core.
And I’m going to be at least a little bit in disbelief.
You said YES.
YOU said yes.
I get to spend the rest of my life proving that I deserve to have you by my side.
That excites and humbles me more than I can even explain.
I’m really looking forward to it.
