Seven Years Ago Today...

Dear Matt,

Seven years ago today we had our very first date.  Do you remember?  We went to Maggiano's and had delicious pasta.  I cleaned my plate and you hardly made a dent in your spaghetti.  Not much has changed.

You knew so soon that you wanted us to be together.  I have no idea why you felt that way, but I'm so glad you realized your feelings so quickly.  At the time, I admit, it freaked me out.  I remember the first time you referred to me at your girlfriend and I thought, "Wait a minute, when did we decide this?"  But in reality, it didn't take me long to figure out you were my one and only.  The person I was meant to share my forever with.

And everyday since then has been magical.  Sure, we've had our moments, but they are so few.  We've found a love that is so special, so real, and unlike anything I could've imagined. 

I have met no one in my whole life who loves like you love.  You like to hide how sweet you are and how warm and open you can be when you first meet someone.  But you have never been like that with me.  You tell me it's because I'm special.  Well, thank goodness you think so. 

So on our seven year first date-o-versary, I want you to know that you are the most important person in the world to me.  You are my very best friend, my constant companion, and my rock.  Our baby is the luckiest little one on the planet to have you has a father.  You already love him or her so much and have taken such great care of us.  I cannot wait to see your hold our child in your arms for the first time.  It's a moment I will treasure forever.

I love you.  I love you more than I ever thought I could love someone.  And do you know what's so wonderful?  I know you feel the exact same way.  I don't think you could love me more if you tried.  I see it everyday in your eyes and I hear it in your voice when you talk to me.  I just hope you can see and hear the same love I feel for you in me.

Yours now and forever,

Jenny
