Today marks Patrick and I’s 8 Year Anniversary. EIGHT YEARS!! I can’t even begin to grasp how long that truly is, but I honestly can’t remember what life was before Patrick walked into my life. Divine timing brought us together at the exact moment we needed each other most, and for the last 8 years I have fallen more and more in love with him every single day. It is true that when you know, you know. I’ve known for a great deal of time that Patrick is my person. It is clear in the way we treat each other, the way we stand beside each other and the way we root each other on in everything we do. Our relationship allows us to be fearlessly ambitious, while keeping things in perspective. As long as we have each other, we can get through and tackle just about anything that comes our way. How incredibly comforting is that? Patrick is my greatest blessing in life and I feel so fortunate to have been able to spend the last 8 years of my life with him and look forward to a million more.
Where do I even start? There are so many minutes, hours, days that have contributed to this story and it is one that has changed the course of my life forever. I can’t help but get emotional when thinking about how blessed I am that you chose me. You are better than me in a million different ways, in a million different lifetimes. I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I thank god every single day for bringing me you.
