Like most young girls, I went through periods of romantic doubt when I was younger. I used to jokingly refer to “Somebody To Love” by Queen as my theme-song, dramatically stating that never would I, a self-proclaimed oddball, find my match.
Oh how I was wrong.
Today I’m celebrating my fifth Valentine’s day with the man I’ll soon call my husband. Our first and last V-day as an engaged couple.
On this day of universal love, I’m taking a moment to be grateful for the amazing person I’m choosing to spend the rest of my life with. Not a day goes by that I don’t appreciate how truly lucky I am, knowing that I, the oddball, have found someone I can talk about hand embroidery projects with, who I can count on to watch every, single “Harry Potter” Freeform marathon with me, and who not only tolerates but encourages my very loud, very repetitive vocal +piano renditions of broadway musicals.
Yes, I am truly lucky.
Here’s to our last Valentine’s day as an engaged couple and to the many future holidays we’ll celebrate together as husband and wife.
Wishing everyone a beautiful day filled with love, peace and lots of chocolate.
