She still humbles me
Posted on 10 November 2011
10 years ago tonight, I stuttered and fumbled my way through a first date with a beautiful, smart, and witty woman who had me floored, and I was the luckiest man in the world. I quickly fell in love with her, and found safety in the beautiful fragile soul behind the boldness. Things couldn’t last, I was a boy then, though we were friends when it didn’t hurt too much. We didn’t talk for years. Nine and a half months ago, our paths crossed again, and we found that as incomplete as we both still felt, we were ready to grow with each other. And we have.
It won’t be long before I ask her to become my wife, to make us officially a family of our own choosing.
I love you, Leslie. Ten years ago, my life changed, and the heartaches only make me more sure that you’re the one I want with me whatever the future may bring.
