16: love how you live life so intensely and throw yourself into whatever you do. I love your sense of adventure and how you are always ready to pull me along for the ride. I love how considerate you are, how you put so much thought into every gesture. I love when we look at each other and smile because we both get it. I love how you never plan to do anything halfway, although sometimes it ends up half done when your spirit pulls you elsewhere. For all these reasons and more, I want to spend my life with you.With this ring, I promise not to stand in the way of your passions, but to help guide them to fruition. I promise to love what you love. I promise to walk beside you wherever you go, to celebrate your successes and console you in defeat. I promise you will never face anything alone. | I
17: Our journey to this day has been longer than most, but that only makes me more confident that you're the best partner I could ask for. I love how you try to see the best in everyone. I love all the adventures we've had because you're always game for anything. I love you for your unflinching patience, especially when I'm the one testing it. I am lucky because you make me feel comfortable enough to just be myself. I promise to encourage you, to help you achieve everything you deserve. I promise to listen when you're making sense, and to let you know when you're not. Like Squiggy and Fritz staring down a squirrel in our backyard, I promise we can take on anything if we do it as a team. I love that after nine years, you continue to surprise me.
20: During ancient times, agreements and promises were sealed by a salt covenant. Each person would take a pinch of salt from their pouch and place it in the pouch of the other. This agreement could not be broken unless an individual could retrieve their own grains of salt. But this, of course, is impossible. Salt has long been valued for its preservative qualities, and has been used to symbolize permanence. Entering into a salt covenant means binding oneself to another in an unbreakable promise of friendship, honesty, loyalty, and love. | The Salt Covenant
