Wow, our first year flew by like a breeze, the second was just as fast. I’m sorry everyone, no big plans to announce other than we are cherishing our times together and letting the future come naturally. Its hard to express the power of falling in love with your best friend other than to say it is definitely the right way to love.
I’m so full of gratitude, appreciation and a gentle love for how the last two years have gone. This year reality set in and a deeper level of respect and appreciation for what I have found, how have I found such a perfect soul.

I wasn’t looking for happiness in someone else, I wasn’t trying to find something that was missing or repairing a broken part of my life. I found happiness in myself and a best friend along the way. Falling in love just came natural to us, apparently others noticed our relationship too. Today there is a running joke that seems to pop up every time we take a trip, go on vacation or even a day trip to somewhere beautiful “will this be the time he asks the question“?
The only answer to that is, absolutely she is perfect, worthy of everything, her soul matches mine and she is a great balance to my life; I can’t plan the future, we can’t plan the future so for today we are choosing to love one another without a label, without reservation or expectations, taking things as they come and naturally let things flow together.

So the suspense for that moment continues, who knows maybe one day the announcement will be public. For today, I’m not looking for a storybook romance or a burning passion, I’m looking for something natural, for the right reasons and that speaks to my heart not what everyone else thinks should be.
I love you Jennifer, happy two year anniversary.
