Ive always been so proud of the man you were 8 years ago and now im even more proud of the man you are today.
Over the past 8 years we have grown together in ways we never imagined. Weve experienced ups and downs, the highs and the lows, but most importanly the lows, as this is where we have always grown the most. And its been hard at times! But the thing is, the hard times is where our connection grew stronger. We have supported and helped each other in times of serious struggle. Youve shown me that love is patient when youre struggling, encouraging when youre uncertain and accepting of the fact that you cannot always be at one hundred percent. I know your love for me is real because you show up in my life, you tell me how you feel and you love me in a way that doesnt leave room for uncertainties or questions. You call me out when i need to be called out. Every day i fall more in love with you because youre real. You show me your imperfect nature, and it reminds me that youre human too and you trust me enough to open up. Anybody can fall in love with a soulmate-the articulate, flawless, mysterious beings who never spend a single minute looking or feeling or seeming uncertain. But falling in love with your person - somebody who still makes you smile despite all the hard times that surround us on a daily basis? Thats rare. Thats special. Thats how i know that you really love me, because no matter what life throws at us, you have always stood by my side.
Even though our love story is far from perfect, its raw, its real and its our kind of perfect.
Today and every day, I promise to always put our family first, to never give up even when times get hard, and to love you for the rest of my life. No matter where we go or how much we grow or even where we end up five, ten, twenty years from now, i promise that we will always be laughing. And most importantly although a little reluctantly, I promise to share my food, as long as I’m not hungry. I love you Tj #myvow #ido #adiosbarron
