On this wet Summer’s day in Pittsburgh, I can hear the birds still singing. Why? Because they are happy. Even in the rain. They remind me of you. Because you, like the birds, are my happy, ALWAYS singing guy, even in life’s rain. And I love you for that. At first, I thought you were a little silly. You’d sing about breakfast, about getting ready, about something you were excited about. And as silly as it might be, I have fallen in love with it. I love it when you sing. Why? Because it means you are happy, and I LOVE my happy guy!
On this day, one year ago, I made the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I married you! This year has been one for the books! We have ridden in a hot air balloon, moved to Australia, held koalas, fed kangaroos, pet wild sting rays, watched the Sydney Fireworks, traveled the Great Ocean road, saw dolphins, traveled to New Zealand, moved to Pittsburgh, and so much more. We’ve been living the dream! But, to be completely honest, my very favorite moments, the ones I have treasured the very most, have been the quiet ones. The late night “real talks.” The quiet park bench conversations. The morning snuggles. The laugh-until-we-cry moments and sometimes the cry-until-we-laugh ones. The little moments when your eyes light up because you are excited about something. The times when we dance in the kitchen or sing in the car. Those are my favorite memories from this year.
You, the cute husband that you are, got up so early this morning. You quietly snuck off to the store to buy the most beautiful red roses that I have ever seen. You bought a card. And you bought orange dark chocolate, one of my favorites. You came back and so softly, crawled back into bed to snuggle, because you know that’s my favorite way to wake up. When I finally got up and stumbled down the hall to make breakfast, you quickly pulled out our special journal, and wrote me yet another perfectly sweet love note. You are perfect. Perfect for me in every single way.
As we continue on this journey, I hope that you keep singing. Because it means you are happy. And when you are happy, I am happy. I love you Nic, and I love the life that we are creating together. You are my everything, and I can't wait to spend the rest of eternity with you. Happy Anniversary, my Love!
