Project 31: Celebrate Beauty

Day 5.  Write a blog thanking someone who has made your heart come alive.
My husband and I on our wedding day.

Dear Casey,

How appropriate is the timing of this question and today's date?  Happy Valentine's day love!  There are so many things that I want to say and that are flying around in my head as I think about this question and the many ways you really have made my heart come alive. 

First off, I love being your wife.  I love that you really love me unconditionally.  I love that you are a loving father to Madison.  I love that you deal with the drama in my life and that we sit back and laugh at it.  I love that you make me want to be a better person for you.  I love that you make me laugh.  I love you for just being you.  I love that you are an unselfish person.  I love you for the sacrifices that you make for me.  These are just a few of the many, many reasons why I love you and that you have made my heart come alive.

But I think the most obvious and most important reason why you've made my heart come alive, our little bundle of joy that will be here before we even know it.  This baby, in more ways than I realized, has made our relationship even stronger.  We are making huge decisions together for this baby that we haven't even met and it's all because we both are so in love with this little girl. This experience has made you evolve into a parent in more ways than I can count and it really makes me overjoyed.  You are going to be an amazing father and I can't wait to live in those moments with you and watch you interact with your girls.

I want to thank you for coming into my life.  Without you I wouldn't be the person I am today.  I love you with all my heart and I'm so looking forward to the next six months of our lives.

Much love,
Your wife
