Today is a Big Day

Today is a big day. Today is the day that I get to marry my best friend.

The last few years have been quite the whirlwind. A new home, a new career, basically a new life. There have been some rough days, but they’ve been completely outweighed by the great days. When I look back at that time one thing clearly stands out. I wasn’t alone through any of it. I had my best friend by my side every single day. Life all of a sudden became full. It became complete. Having that unconditional love and support has been the difference in my life.

She is the most beautiful person I’ve ever known. I’ve never met anyone as kind and generous and caring. She makes me a better person. She’s perfect. It’s a strange and amazing feeling to have found someone you can connect with on that completely different level. I’ve realized that I feel “normal” when I’m with her. That may sound a little lame, but it’s the highest compliment I can give. Looking back I realize I was never really whole until I met her. There was always something missing that I couldn’t quite pin down. To put it simply, when we’re not together, I’m not me.

But today all of that changes. Today I get to marry my best friend. The love of my life. The woman that makes me whole. The woman that makes me who I am.

Leslie, I love you more than you can imagine. I am so incredibly happy. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.
