I fell in love with you the second before the moment we met, before our minds had time to catch up with our hearts. It was an elusive breath, a love that whispered down through the cracks and fell into my soul. It was a love that explained why your gaze felt so familiar, before I ever spoke your name. Why your presence made my heart smile and stretch, eager to begin what it already knew, before I felt how perfectly my hand fit inside yours.

Quiet and sleepy, like a blossoming rosebud. A love that murmured of memories yet to be made, of a fairy tale more precious than countless imaginings. A love that existed just beneath the surface of reality, just beyond my lingering thoughts. It floated beneath my knowledge for long months.
And you became my good friend.

Then, out of nowhere, in the midst of a prayer,
my mind fell in synch with the beating of my heart.

And I looked up from my daydreams to meet forever in your eyes.

Two years ago today, the day that I knew.
Ever so softly,
as if I never should have doubted,
an eternal voice told me

that I was (you were)
the one.

I had fallen in love with you from the start.
And you had fallen in love with me.

Two years ago today, the day you told me. In a fluttering whisper, as if we had always known,

that I was (you were)
in love.

June 8, 2008 - the day we started dating
(Happy Two Years of Us, Baby Love!
The 730 happiest days of my life.)


  1. Thus began the most beautiful love story. An overwhelming procession of perfect moments wrapped up in our hands touching! Every moment a miracle as we stepped into all the promises the Lord had given us. Truly even before we were born these moments had been seen...by the heart of our Father in heaven!
    Our thoughts began dancing swirling together in harmony. In our thoughts going places so magnificent that were left undone and only able to smile! Thoughts of wonder, beauty, excitement, romance...I never knew I could be this happy before!
    Baby, you are more than one could dream for. More than one could hope for. More than one could even think to pray for. Yet you are mine and I am yours, what perfect love is this!!
    Praise God for the best 2 years of our lives!!!
