to my hubby

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and  in honour of it, I wrote a love letter to Lil J.  This morning it hit me that I had forgotten to write a post to my husband or at least included him in Lil J's post.  After all, he is my other Valentine!

We've been together for a solid 7 1/2 years and married for almost 3.  We met {dare I even say?} at a local club and at the time I wasn't looking for a relationship.  I was a young 21 year old just looking to have fun.  I mean, who goes to a club looking for a serious relationship?  All things said, it took my now hubby over 30 minutes past closing time to score my number {after much begging}.  After all I didn't give my number out to random guys.  And as the story goes, the rest is history......

Us in Vegas - 2007
Over the years we have taken many trips together - to LA, Vegas, Jamaica, Austria, Germany...just to name a few - and are now going on trips with our soon-to-be expanding family.  Next stop is Disneyland!  We were married on May 18, 2009 in a very private ceremony a month before Lil J was born.  It was my hubby's wish that we get married before the baby arrived.  I could have gone the non-traditional route but thought it was sweet that G was being more traditional.  So I just went with the flow.

On June 24, 2009 our lives changed forever.  We welcomed our first child together....our sweet Lil J.

And now we are expecting our second child in early June 2012!  Big sister Miss S is super excited and hopes it will be a girl.  G and I just hope the baby is healthy {so cliche but so true}.

Here is my love letter to my hubby:

To my hubby:

As I browsed Valentine's cards yesterday, I came across some mushy, lovey-dovey sayings and immediately thought, 'that is so NOT us!'.  I look back at the years we've spent together and although it sounds long, 7 1/2 years have flown by like I would have never imagined.  I have never laughed more or felt more comfortable and at ease with someone than I do with you.  I love that we don't plan the immediate future {even though sometimes we should} and that we are always spontaneous and go with the flow.  Life shouldn't be about planning every minute of every day.  Even despite our 13 year age difference {which I never see}, we have always been on the exact same wavelength from day one.  I could say our relationship is near-perfect but nothing in life is perfect.  Sometimes Every day I nag you for one thing or another - whether it's your procrastinating ways, the balls of used paper towels all over the kitchen {the garbage is not that far away!}, dishes in the sink, etc. etc. - and I know I can be annoying, but you always say 'yes hunny' {probably while tuning me out} and take everything in stride.  Even your imperfections are perfect.

The love you have for our children is what I cherish the most.  I witnessed this first-hand when we first started dating and you were fighting to get your daughter back after she was wrongfully brought to another country.  I saw how extremely hard it was on you emotionally and knew I would never be able to fill that void.  I accepted that I would always be second in your life and I understand this even more ever since Lil J was born.  I couldn't ask for a better father for my children and I have no doubt that you will always be there for them.  They are unbelievably lucky.

I thank you for everything that you've given me.  I love you more and more every day.  And as evident from your Valentine's card yesterday, you know me all too well :)
Valentine's 2012

Your Wife
