FC: birds of a feather ella jane + nick
1: Darling Nick, This is the photo that sums everything up for me. When I came down the aisle and saw your sweet face, so full of pride and happiness, I knew I was making the best decision of my life. You are without a doubt the kindest, gentlest, most generous man I've ever known and I am beyond lucky to be your wife. When we met I was terribly lost and desperately unhappy, but your smile in that bar was like a lighthouse cutting through the gloom; suddenly, I knew my way again. I knew you were something special, and I knew I could be good to you. My life has improved thousand-fold since that Monday we decided to take the plunge and make the move. I hated my job, didn't trust my friends, | and had managed to almost completely alienate my family. But with you by my side, I've found my way; wonderful friends, a new career, and best of all, I am closer to my family than I have ever been. Without your love and support, I'm sure I wouldn't have had the strength to make a change. Of all the things you've given me, courage is what I value the most. I've learned so much from you about standing up for what is right, what you believe in, and always for the little guy. Our wedding was the most wonderful day of my life. I may joke, but I have so many beautiful memories from that day. The way you looked at me when I came down the aisle; the love I felt all around from our families; how you smiled and laughed while we rang the bell; the sound of our friends and family talking and laughing at dinner; best of all, the feeling that everything was right in the world and always would be, as long as you were by my side. The best part is everything we have to look forward to. An infinite number of Sundays spent on the couch or bellied up, watching football games; approximately ten thousand hours of morning snuggle time; a bananagrams and dominoes partner for life; more new recipes than I could ever try; and countless walks, strolls, and rambles. I love you more every moment, and I can't wait for what will come in the next few years. I want us to never stop talking to each other like we do now, full of candor and humor and goodwill. I hope I never stop making you laugh. I want to build a home with you and fill it with love, warmth, and beautiful things. Never before could I imagine starting a family, but with you, I want to have a whole crop to love and teach and be sweet to so we can send them all down the aisle on their wedding days, knowing exactly what a beautiful thing they have found. | I love him to hell and back and heaven and back and have and do and will. | yours forever, Ella Jane

3: you've got to learn to get to know the one you love; to anticipate her every move, you got to know exactly what she's thinking of. she may be hungry, but she won't say - you better get a burger or something in her right away. if you don't, you're gonna pay at the hand of the one you love.
5: let everyone in the world halt, unless the entire world acknowledges that nowhere on earth is there a damsel more beautiful than she who has no equal, Dulcinea
6: way down, way down along the stream how very, very sweet it will seem once more just to dream in the silvery moonlight my honey, I know with the dawn that you will be gone but tonight you belong to me
8: man is a knot into which relationships are tied
10: are we not like two volumes of one book?

19: A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
