An Open Letter to the Love of My Life
You came into my life so unexpectedly and I am so thankful that you did. Lucky would be an understatement in describing how I feel about meeting you. I was never one to believe in fate or soul mates, but you changed that, didn't you? You've changed a lot of things for me.
I was always the girl who didn't mind being alone. Curling up with a good book or laying in bed on a rainy day watching endless hours of Netflix used to be my idea of a Saturday well-spent. Dealing with relationships was the last thing on my mind because I had my friends and I was too picky to find a guy I genuinely liked anyways.
But you came along and changed everything. If you weren't with me one night, I spent the whole night wishing you were. I am at the happiest I've been this past year than I have been in my entire life. One year really doesn't seem like much time at all, but it's okay because I've found my forever.
Our relationship isn't perfect, but perfect would be boring. We never fight about serious things; it's always little things like leaving the toilet seat up or how loud I like to play music in your car. I love these little fights, because they always end with you letting me think I'm right and us laughing about it.
I love your laugh. I also love how goofy you dance with me when we go out and how you cook me breakfast the morning after when I sleep over at your place. I may act like I get annoyed, but your obnoxiously loud singing and dancing in the kitchen while you cook puts a smile on my face every single time. I love how when I fall asleep on the couch, instead of waking me you just carry me to my bed and tuck me in.
Many of our friends are out searching for the same type of love that we have. We watch their relationships fail due to infidelity, fighting, and more. They bounce from relationship to relationship with no avail, hoping to some day find someone who loves them for all that they are. I have finally found that with you.
You may not realize it, but you have succeeded in helping me open up and let people in again. You have convinced me that there are good people in this world and that I just need to give them a chance. I am so thankful to have given you a chance. I have finally opened up and became that girl who believes in fate and soulmates and even cheesy love stories like The Notebook.
I am now that girl who fantasizes about her future, marriage, and everything else that comes with loving such a wonderful person. You are my person. So thank you for loving all of me, because I know I don't make it the easiest at times.
I love you, oh so much,
