True Love

On the day we took our engagement photos, our photographers asked us to play a game called "I fell in love with you because...". It was a ploy to get us to be lovey with each other, and I'm sure they hear all kinds of mushy stuff during that time, like about their smile and their beautiful eyes, etc.

But Fiance and I had a whole different viewpoint on it.

"I fell in love with you because you sprint around the house when you get excited about something."

"I fell in love with you because you growl at me when you are playful."

"I fell in love with you because you love our dog so much."

"I fell in love with you because you like to surprise me."

"I fell in love with you because of how silly we can be together."

"I fell in love with you because you let me steal bites of your food."

"I fell in love with you because you always buy chocolate ice cream, even though you don't like it as much as I do."

"I fell in love with you because you share your heat with me every night."

"I fell in love with you because you love puns so much."

"I fell in love with you because you put your hands in my hair to kiss me."

Our reasons for love were so true and honest that even we couldn't help but laugh with delight and happiness. I had no idea he even noticed when I sprinted around the house, and he didn't realize how much I like it when he growls at me to wrestle or play with him, like a puppy. Our photographers wanted us to be lovey and mushy, but even though I love his eyes and his smile, the things I love about him are the small details that make him HIM. The little quirks and habits that are so uniquely FIANCE that I love them because they are part of him.

And to me, that is true love.

  1. This made me tear up. I am so incredibly happy for you. Not that I wasn't before (I've always thought that Josh was your "one"), but things like this just confirm it (:
