To my number 1:
From very early on you became a huge part of my life, my dreams, my future and my family. I have dreamed of this day for so long, soooo very long 🙂 The day you asked me to be your wife couldn’t have been more perfect. It was in the most perfect spot that holds a special place in both of our hearts for a variety of reasons, the place we always felt the most connected. I could not be more proud than I am today, standing here in front of the people we love the most sharing the vows and promises I have for you and for our marriage.
I promise to love you through the good times and the bad. I promise to love you when we have no money AND when we become really rich! I promise to TRY MY BEST to shut the cupboards and the garage door. I promise to love you when life seems easy and to help and guide you when life is difficult. I promise to TRY not steal all the covers. I promise to support you in all your hobbies and passions, even when I have yet to understand them. I promise to listen to you and truly hear what you have to say.
To hug you just because, to support you and encourage you.
I vow to never make you guess what I’m thinking or feeling, I will always speak my mind but I will try to do so without insulting you or making you uncomfortable. I vow to put us first. I vow to keep my love as pure as it is today. I vow to not only grow old with you, but to grow with you each and every day. I vow to compromise, to work to make myself better, to always work to make us better. I vow to do my best to be a great parent and role model to our children someday.
You are my once in a lifetime love and with you I have found my best friend, my constant companion and my place in this world. This is the beginning of something amazing, something awesome. A new chapter, a new US and it’s going to be one crazy ride. I promise to love you unconditionally, wildly and fiercely through all of our adventures in life together. For today, tomorrow and the rest of forever we will be together, one team. Me and you. I love you, Taft!
It was not that long ago we were driving around in my red truck with no worries in the world. How time flies. From Willy Wonka in the van to sneaking over to visit you from my grandparents house. I knew at a very young age that you and I would some day be standing here in front of everyone. It takes a special woman to deal with me. You are that special person. Not only are you special, but you are my best friend. I couldn’t imagine not waking up every morning next to you. Through good and bad you have always been there for me. Your love for your nan and pop and your entire family show what kind of values you have. Life is so short and family is a huge part of it. I am thankful that in about 15 minutes you will officially be my family. I am not going to promise things that I cannot deliver. I am going to hunt and fish until I die while being the best husband known to mankind. You truly are my kind of crazy. I love you with my entire heart even when you tell me I have drank too much and I shouldn’t do something. Today is the first day of the rest of forever. I look forward to growing old with you through good and bad. I love you, Palmdogg.
