Hi my loves, it’s Saint Valentine’s Day!!! I love this day because I am a hopeless romantic. I love love and I live for it, literally. Funny story is, after being alone for so long I didn’t think I’d get to experience the romantic kind of love in my lifetime; I’d started doubting if it existed except in movies. Enter Mr. Grey and all that changed. This man walked into my life and brightened my days in a way I didn’t think was possible. So I thought that with this being the first Valentine since I’m blogging again, I’d love to share my Valentine with all you guys, and with my main squeeze Mr. Grey who happens to be across the pond over in the US where duty called, while other obligations required that I be here in Belgium for now. This is an open letter to my love; the man of my dreams, the one that makes my imagination run wild.
My darling, my hunny, hubby, my lover and my best friend… Where do I begin in expressing what you mean to me? How can I explain a phenomenal beyond human understanding? I feel ill equipped to decipher this illusive emotion called love. Nonetheless, here is my feeble attempt. When I first became aware of your existence in this world, my life brightened up considerably. Just the thought that you walked the same earth I did gave me joy and I felt this inexplicable peace that all was well with the world afterall. I knew I’d say yes and that I’d marry you if you’d ask me. You asked, I said yes, and thus began our life together as man and wife, our adventure of love.
You’ve made it fresh everyday like you promised you would, and for that I’m always grateful because everyday with you is an adventure. See the way that you love me babe? I’d only seen that in movies. But you came into my life and made that real. I feel like I’m the luckiest girl in the world. Just the thought of you in my life brightens each new day.
As daddy’s little girl, I learnt what unconditional sacrificial love is from my father. I am glad because in that sense, I understand Christ’s love for His church, unconditional and sacrificial. And I am so lucky to have a husband that loves me deeply and unconditionally as well. Your dedication to our family and marriage warms my heart. Six years in, I love you more than I did that first day. I am grateful to God for each day we share together, for each disagreement that teaches us compromise, each shared meal that brings us closer, each conversation that makes us open and vulnerable, and every tender snuggle or back-rub that lays bare our connection.
This Valentine’s Day, I thank God for you my love. And this Valentine’s Day, I thank you for choosing to spend your life loving me everyday. I love you to the moon and back. I always will. Have a Happy Valentine!!! Wifey xoxo
Thank you all for sharing your Valentine’s Day with us lovelies. From us to you, near or far, we wish you a Happy Saint Valentine’s Day. Love and kisses, The Greys
