FC: “For some, life lasts a short while, but the memories it holds lasts forever.” | Our First Year Together | I LOVE YOU | EU TE AMO | YO TE AMO | 5.13.09
1: One year ago today, we took a chance. We both came into a relationship not knowing what was going to happen. But, look at us now one year later....Take some time, sit back, and enjoy this book. Let it bring you back memories of our time together. | We have been through a lot, good and bad, and I believe it's true what they say, "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger." My gift to you, is the good times we have shared together. My gift is the laughter we've shared, my gift to you is all the times that made us stronger. This book will help you remember all those times. I hope you enjoy my gift to you baby. Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. - TE AMO KARINA
2: I remember laying my head on your lap at the school bench. I remember looking into your eyes and feeling safe, and extremely comfortable. It was somewhat of a hot day at summer school, and you were taking care of me because of my bike accident. You held me close and looked at me while I laid there. To be honest, that day was the first day I knew I was in love with you. Never had i felt so safe in someone's arms before. I remember us sitting close, I remember looking into your eyes and shedding a tear. You said it was cute and I thought it was ridiculous and really embarrassing. I wasn't crying because I was sad or anything. I remember being so happy that day. I just know that I loved it. I felt TRUE love for the first time. It was incredible. | SUMMER....
3: You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love.
4: One of the things that I love about us, is that we can act extremely childish around each other. We can truly act like ourselves. I can play around with you, and you can play around with me. We can laugh for hours! We can have so much fun together. Remember that time we went to eat at my dad's restaurant, and that lady served us desert that kinda looked like poop in a cup? LOL speaking of poop, I like the fact that we're comfortable enough to let each other know when a fart is coming. I've had a lot of fun with you the past year, I'm looking forward to more adventures with you baby.
5: “For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. I LOVE YOU
6: Yes, we've had our ups and downs. Yes, we've had our heart breaks. We've learned our lesson, and we're trying our best to move on.It's hard, I know. But like I said earlier, "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger." We fight and we yell, but at the end of the day, we can still say I LOVE YOU. We have fallen on our face too many times yet we still work things out. Our love is strong, and I don't think anything can take us down. I love you Karina. Never will I stop fighting for our relationship. Never again, will I give up. You're my everything baby. I LOVE YOU
7: “Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future
8: It was one of the best birthdays I've ever had. Even though you're really bad at surprises lol, it was amazing. I had a lot of fun that day and I have you to thank for that baby. I enjoyed this day so much, and I will always remember it. Thanks for giving me an incredible day.
10: School started. I thought I was barely going to see you but I was wrong. I made sure to spend every minute possible with you, I found you in the halls, and I sat in lunch with you. I stopped seeing my friends a little, to spend time with you. And trust me, it was worth it. I cherished every second I spent with you. We had a lot of rough times in school. but, we also had a lot of good ones. Rick always made us laugh. Gosh, I love that kid. We always find a way to have fun. I love that. | School....
11: “A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime.”
12: I wrote this message to you a while back on facebook. I want you to keep it. Refer back to it every time you feel down, or lonely. It'll make you feel better, and remind you that there isn't one second of my day that I'm not thinking about you. "As you sleep, I'm thinking about how much I want to hold you right now. I'm thinking about how I don't want to be anywhere else in the world but in the same bed with you, holding you tight while you sleep. I miss your smell, your voice, your smile, your touch.....I miss the way you look into my eyes, your cute laugh, I miss the way you sneak up on me to try and tickle my bum. I miss everything about you:( And also, I think about how I want to make you my wife. If I could, believe me, I would marry you tomorrow. But you and I both know we're not ready, financially or emotionally. But, I look forward to that day. The day I introduce you to my friends as my beautiful wife, the day I lay beside you to sleep, only to awake every morning to the beautiful face of the woman I love. I look forward to the day we sit down together to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.Yes, I look forward to play fighting, and yes, I look forward to cuddling on rainy days, eating dulce de leche and watching The Notebook. I look forward to a long happy life with you. A life with 2-3 brats running around the house, a life filled with happiness, a life filled with love. A life with you, my soulmate, my best friend, my WIFE. We're both 16 years old and we got sooooooo much living to do. And I can assure and promise you, I wanna do all that living WITH YOU. I love you Karina Martinez (beatiful last name btw:) I love you with all my heart. My heart has only one owner, and thats you, and thats how it will always be:) TE AMO BABY, TE AMO MUCHO.
13: What is there to live for, if you're gone? What is there to fight for if you were to leave? You have given me a future, and hope. You have given me something to look forward to. And what do I have to give you? Hold out your hands in front of you, and what do you see? I see my loving heart beating in the palm of your hands. I surrender my love to you, and all I ask for, is for you to take care of me. My love for you grows with each and everyday. I love you more and more with each second that passes by.I love everything about you. I love your smile, your hugs, your smell, your touch, your DELICIOUS kisses, your soft lips, your dark brown eyes that stare deep into me and show me you love me. I love your laugh. I think it's the cutest thing in the world. I love how I say something cute and you smile at me, you blush, and you tilt your head down and hold me close. I think that everything you do is the cutest thing in the world.I love you baby. I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU DO. You mean the world to me, and without you, I would be a complete wreck. You're the sanity for my troubled self. You're the reason I wake up everyday with a smile. You're the reason for my happiness. You're very special to me and I'm very grateful to have you as my girlfriend. I LOVE YOU
14: A poem for you.... | With all the hardships and pain, laughs and long talks sometimes we drive each other insane. But when it comes to loving you, I DO! I've held others before, But it was never like this. If not for you, I wouldn't know what true love really meant. If not for you, I'd never have The pleasures of romance. I'd miss the bliss, the craziness, Of love's sweet embrace. You're in each thought I have, and every breath I take. My feelings are growing stronger with every move you make. You Keep me happy when I'm mad and make me smile when I cry. There will never be another girl. you will forever be in my heart. Nothing can change my mind There's just no One else for me. NO ONE can compare to you You will always be my baby.
15: If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.
16: 12.9.09 | BIRTHDAY
17: I had fun on your birthday. I hate the fact that I wasn't able to dance though (it makes me sad). But hopefully you'll be able to teach me to dance next time without laughing at me lol. I liked the cake from my dad, but I didn't like how they messed up on your name. I wanted it to be PERFECT.I loved this day. I hope to make your future birthdays better then the last. I LOVE YOU BABY
18: Valentine's Day | Valentine's day was AMAZING. I loved every second of it. I loved how you fell asleep on my arms. I loved everything about it. I loved the candles, the music and our sweet time together. If I could, I would do something similar to Valentine's day once a month. I think that Valentine's day is one of my favorite memories I have with you baby.I would do anything to relive that day. Lol, Valentine's day was almost perfect, I wish your feet weren't bleeding. It seemed like it hurt a lot. But that didn't stop us from having a great day. I loved that day and I'll always remember it baby.
19: You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep, because reality is way better than any dream.
20: April 13th | We hung out at the park on our 11 month anniversary. We sat below a tree and we cuddled for a little while. I remember holding you and thinking about all we've been through, good and bad. We took pictures, I looked terrible in them. You looked cute ofcourse. You always do. This was the day where I got my idea for this book, I went home and started planning everything out. I'm hoping you've enjoyed it so far. I loved hanging out at the park and I hope you did too. This is something I would like to do more often.
21: Your presence in my life brings wonderful smiles and loving thoughts within my heart.
22: Giving you all of myself, To you and not anyone else. Everyday, not just now and then, To be able to call you more than a friend. Sunny days spent together, Memories that will hopefully last forever. Winters spent keeping each other warm. Holding each other through the storm. Emotions so strong they must be shared, So someone else does not stand bare. Giving without taking back. Never giving into the slack. Life will give plenty of times, When the corridor splits in two. We'll go together in the dark, But if we stay together, We'll make it through. Making it through, day by day, This is what I had to say. Learn and also be the teacher, Of what was, is, and could be, The Past, Present, Future. | Adrian & Karina
23: I'm looking forward to each morning,to every afternoon, every night, and every second spent with you. I'm looking forward to making more memories together. Never have I been so sure that I want to spend the rest of my life with someone. That someone is you babe. You make me happy, you make me laugh, and you give me feelings no one has ever given me. You're the love of my life baby, and I'm more than thankful to have you in my life. I need you in my life babe, and I hope you realize that. I don't know what I'd do without you. I couldn't last a day without you. I finally found someone I want to spend the rest of my life with. I finally found someone who I can surrender my heart to. I finally found my true love, my soul mate. I love you Karina. Let there be many more birthdays, christmas', valentine's days, and other memories that we live through together. I love you Karina, now, always and forever.
