Valentine's Special

It’s Valentine’s Day! The one day a year you get a green light to be gooey and romantic, kiss in public, and go crazy with heart-shaped things (cards, pancakes, and hairdo’s). Well, I couldn’t let this opportunity go to waste. I am a newly-wed and very much in love. So here it goes. My Valentine’s special: wedding pictures and a true love story.

The first song Will and I danced as a married couple was: At Last, by Etta James. It goes like this:

At last my love has come along

My lonely days are over and life is like a song

At last the skies above are blue

My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you

Some of you might know that Will and I have moved to the US, but most people don’t know that before that, we had to live in separate countries for six months. The longest six months of my life. We daydreamed of the moment when we would see each other again. And for sure, when I saw him in that airport, when I kissed him… I couldn’t help but think of this song. At last... 

We moved to a new country, we got married, we started a new life. Although there are a million things I love about our relationship, I want to take advantage of the occasion to thank Will for being an awesome husband. Here are 5 things I love about you and us.

1.     You are my friend

From funny nicknames to pranks and crazy dances. You are there for all the silliness and all the seriousness. I love that you are my friend.

2.     Plans together

We plan pictures, and blog posts, meals and trips. It doesn’t matter if today’s plans are a How I Met your Mamma episode or a road trip, I will always love spending time with you either way.

3. An artist

I love to see your view of the world. You tell so many stories through your pictures and writings. I will always admire your talent, your methods and intelligence. 

4. Voice of reason

Whenever we face struggles in life, you have an ability to remain calm and remind me of the real important things. 

5. All the HUGE and little things

That morning breakfast and coffee make my day. Your support, your love, and your trust make my life. 

You smiled, you smiled oh and then the spell was cast

And here we are in Heaven

For you are mine at last
