because...

because you like to wash dishes...
because your laugh makes me laugh...
because your hands are weathered and worn...
because your hugs make everything right...
because you don't let me win...
because you believe i can win...
because you make the best top ramen...
because you like when i speak spanish...
because you let me laugh loudly...
because you like to dance with me...
because you give helpless people hope...
because you like pink, cotton candy jelly beans...
because you took me back--twice...
because your laundry smells amazing...
because you think i'm beautiful without makeup...
because you'll hug me when i'm really, really mad at you...
because you've been hurt by love yet still believe in the institution of marriage...
because words are all i have...
i.love.you

if all of this were to end tomorrow, i am a better person today because of you. thank you for not trying to make me happy, but to make me holy. you're a small reflection of the love christ has for me. thank you for loving me just the way i am.

SO. Somehow I've been under a rock. Just the last few posts I've been wondering if you've started dating somebody in the past year or so... and you did. YES. Pumped. That's exciting! :)

Laurel said...

Soooo ....

did you intend to say ...

"because you think I'm beautiful without makeout ..."

or

"because you think I'm beautiful without makeup" ?


it's good to know that he thinks you're beautiful even when you're not "making out" ???
