I posted this on Instagram, but wanted to repost here for posterity.
While Valentine’s Day may not be something we care about, February 14th means so much to me.
17 years ago we started dating on a Friday afternoon just like this one. The stuffed bear I gave you that day is still with us, upstairs in our youngest’s crib.
Today, we’ve been together half our lives.
What I’m most excited for is that starting tomorrow, we will have been together more than half our lives. And every day after, I’ll know I’ve spent the better part of my life with the perfect partner for me.
I ❤️ You, Caroline.
(And even though this is a big milestone, let’s just stay home and eat popcorn tonight. 😉)
