Year number one. October 14, 2008

Dear Jeff,

I was thinking today about our story. Our story of patience, distance, friendship, phone conversations, e-mails, and years and years of waiting. You know, we’ve always called it a “chick flick” story. And it’s true. The best part is, it’s real life.

I can still feel the nervous excitement I got every time I knew I’d (finally) get to see you, those one or two times a year for HOBY. I remember how my college friends called you “the guy Erica’s going to marry” — even before I let myself believe it. I can still feel how my heart filled up and exploded when you (finally) told me after 5 (or was it more?) years of friendship that you had a “really huge crush on me.” I remember how I couldn’t wait to call all of my friends who had heard me talk about you for years to share the news. I can still feel the anticipation of (finally) getting to see you during our long-distance dating time. I remember the huge phone bills that my parents got for months and months until you (finally) switched to my cell phone service (thanks, Mom. we owe you!). I can still feel the joy of our wedding day, and the realization that it was (finally) here. I remember walking down that aisle towards you and knowing without one ounce of a doubt that you were meant for me.

It’s hard to believe that was a year ago today. I am so blessed to call you my husband. I can’t imagine a more loving, thoughtful, funny, generous, silly, optimistic and encouraging person to spend my years on this earth with.

Thank you for loving me like you do.

Love,

Erica

One year already? Small, I know, in the grand scheme of things. But so, so great.

Jeffrey…I love you. And I just can’t say it enough.

    I am so blessed I am to be your husband. You are the most talented, capable, intelligent and beautiful girl I have ever known and I can’t believe that you picked me!

    I love you so, so much, Erica. Thank you.

    hehe whoops. I typed “I am so blessed I am to be your husband”, but I didn’t mean to type the “to be”… since I’m already your husband ;) Anyway. Silly typo.

    I love you!
