S: To My One and Only
BC: "Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose" -Joseph Addison
1: As I'm sure you've guessed, this is why I wanted more pictures of us. I always make things with the same pictures from two years ago, and I just wanted a new way to show you why I love you!
2: Once upon a time, we began dating just a little over three years ago...
3: And with each new day, our love only grew stronger and brought us closer together. | We went to those silly school dances, and did all the projects that we could do together (even though Herr made that easy for us).
4: Since January 10, 2009, we've been able to share the same experiences and become even more of a part of each other.
5: Together, we've built everlasting
6: We've made trips up to good ole Hamburg, pre-gamed in the meeting room at Comfort, and made an adventure of walking the vendors.
8: We've made that long haul to the Outer Banks, and for a week we get to simply live our lives and be in each other's company. | LIVING YOUNG & WILD & FREE
9: "A heart that loves is always young"
10: "Real love stories never have endings"
11: But most of our time is spent at home in Erie, where we really have to try to find things to do. | During football season, you put up with me looking like shit and cheering on our teams. | Either out at Bullfrog or Boston's, or just staying at home, we always find new reasons to love each other.
12: Since you've been up in Batavia, things between us have changed slightly. We hardly see each other, we don't get to talk as much, and we both have our separate schedules to attend to that keep us busy.
13: But with all these changes, I get more time to stop and really think about us. I think about how I really need to be better for you and how I miss the feeling of being in your arms. All this thinking makes me figure out some of the main reasons why you mean so much to me.
14: First off, you always go out of your way to make me smile.
15: You know just how to make me laugh no matter how bad of a mood I'm in. You never care how weird or creepy you are. You just do it, and you do it because you love seeing me smile.
16: You always make our days together interesting.
17: But you always know how to fix our problems too.
18: You work hard and take it seriously, even when Richard and Michael make it very difficult to want to work some days. You take your mustache pretty seriously too.
19: even with all the work that you do, you still manage to have fun while doing it.
21: Above all, you've always given me your all, and that is something that I can't begin to explain how much I appreciate. I'm so happy that we have been able to share the last three years of our lives together, and I hope we can continue to share the rest of each others lives together too. Here's to now, and the rest of forever. With all of my love, Olivia Noelle
