My man. In a year.

Love is different for every person.  No two people feel the same, but there is a common thing that in life sometimes we get lucky enough to find that person who is our soul mate.

God allowed me to open a door and begin a beautiful journey with mine a year ago today. B is every thing I have dreamed of since I was a little girl, and so much more.  

B, baby, I want to take a minute and thank you for the best year of my life.  You took a girl with broken wings and made her into a woman that feels as though she can fly and conquer the world.  You restored a confidence in myself I have not seen in years.  You challenge me to think outside the box and look at situations in ways I might not normally would have.  You treat me like a princess and open doors just like a true Southern gentleman.  You can look at me and tell me you love me with your eyes.  You wrap you arms around me and make all the problems in the world disappear.  You are my best friend, the best boyfriend, and the best guy I have ever met.  You are my world, love, and I hope you know that I hope one day when we celebrate many years of marriage that I will still feel this exact way.  You have my heart forever.

You will never know how deep my love runs for you, B.  But in one year I've found myself fallen deep, head over heels in love with you.  I cannot imagine my life without you in it and I can't remember my life before you came along.  Thank you for every minute we've shared over the last year.

I have found the one my heart loves.
