4: To the girl of my dreams,
5: Dear Michele, The first thing I want to say is how lucky I am to have found such a special woman to spend the rest of my life with. Your the reason I can't wait to get home every day to find out how your day was and what kind of adventure you have got us into next. You always brighten up my day weather it's a trip to Vegas, when we're both sick or a great trip to the river. I look forward to everyday with you. Even if it's a day trading in your fifth car of the year. We love each other despite the fact that you might laugh so hard you pee your pants in the street while trying to add things to the neighbors trash, and I had too much to drink and puked on a cops feet. I remember our first date like it was yesterday. I was so nervous and I had the flu but I wasn't going to miss a chance to take you out. We went to EJ Phairs for dinner and you took a little white pill with just about every bite which seemed a little bit strange to me but you kept telling me it was okay (hoping it was not prozac that you were taking) you were lactose intolerant. It was a great time and it has only gotten better with every passing day. I look forward to growing old together, building our family together, and we both know you are going to be the best mom ever. So I just want to say thanks for being you. Your the girl of my dreams, my best friends and I love you. Aaron
6: Mr. Aaron Youse, It's not exactly like I spent my whole childhood dreaming about my wedding, what dress would I wear, what colors will I choose, where will it be held at, how many people will be there, what shape will my cake be, what kind of flowers will I have; etc...but instead, I did spend years all the way back to my high school days wondering who will I marry? I didn't know who he would be or what he would look like. I only knew that I wanted him to be my best friend. I wanted him to be my solid rock in this unsteady world. I wanted him to be someone I love, trust, and cherish. Someone that I would give myself to completely with no walls around my heart. Someone that I could love until the end of time. Aaron, from the moment I saw you out back of the Clayton Club by the staircase I said to myself...Wow-when did he get so cute? and so tall? It's too bad he's taken. I was drawn towards you and after talking to you and finding out you were still single a little tingle of butterflies formed in my stomach. After that I kept running into you everywhere. I would get all excited and embarassed when I would see you. I would go home and think about you and wonder what it would be like to get to know you. Would we get along? Do we have anything in common? Will he like my dogs? Is he even interested in me? As time passed I learned that you were interested in me. I was so excited! I was nervous when I knew you were coming over for the first time. It didn't take us long from the moment of our first date to the day you moved in. I was as if my childhood wish had been granted. All of a sudden out of nowhere you came into my life and you are everything I ever wanted. You are my best friend. I love you entirely and completely. We get along so well, we balance each other, we have things in common, we have similar wants and dreams. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to grow old and gray and crusty with you and I could never have asked for a more perfect person to be the father of my children. I give myself to you 100%. No walls, no secrets, no boundaries. I promise to have and to hold and to cherish you in sickness and in health. I have never been more ready in my life to say the words...
