Kristen, I remember the first moment I saw you. You were eating an apple and taking the daintiest little bites. I thought to myself that you would never finish it and I didn’t care because I could have watched you nibble away for hours. You still eat apples like that and I still love watching because it reminds me of the moment that changed my life. I didn’t know anything about you, but something about you lit me up inside and I haven’t been the same since. Since then, I have discovered so many more little habits you have that may seem trivial, but to me, they’re all the intricacies that make you who you are. I love the way you twirl your hair absentmindedly when you read a book, I love that you not only have to stop to pet every single dog we pass, but you have to learn the dog’s name, age, and breed. I love that you can’t spell the word refrigerator and that you carry a lucky marble in your purse. I love the way your ears stick out of your hair and that you always write handwritten thank you notes. Most of all, I love that you make me want to be a better person, to get out of bed every single day and make you happy. I, Nathan, promise you, Kristen, that I will continue to try to make you happy every day for the rest of my life no matter what obstacles we may face. I promise to cherish each day we share together, even days that are challenging. I vow to be your rock when you need one, your shoulder to cry on, your partner to laugh with, and your greatest admirer. I promise to be the best husband I can be as we journey through life together.You are my soul mate and the one who makes my world come to life. I can’t wait to continue to discover everything about you as we grow old together. I love you, and everything about you, with all my heart.
