Dear darling,

Throughout my high school life, I was always the third wheel or the single pringle that was never ready to mingle. I always felt too awkward to have a boyfriend. I wasn't ready, and I knew I wasn't. Sure, I had my crushes, but they all ended in heartbreak. I was that girl to roll my eyes at other's relationships, and I would always scoff and turn my head the other direction. I regret being that girl, because now I completely understand.

Not only are you my loving boyfriend, but you're also my amazing best friend. You’re the first person to know what is going on in my life, whether it’s good news, or bad news. You're my shoulder to cry on, and I know you will always be there to reassure my life will be okay. You're always the one to root for me and encourage me in everything I do. I know I can count on you to pick me up. I can be myself around you and I know you wouldn't think of me any differently. You always make me feel beautiful everyday, no matter if I'm rocking sweats or wearing no makeup.


Your laugh is contagious. There’s not a day with you when I don't laugh. We’re always joking and having a great time. Your silly puns will always brighten up my day, no matter how ridiculous or corny they are. Your cheesy sense of humor is one of my favorite things about you, and when I'm down with the blues, you know exactly how to lighten up my mood!

One of my favorite qualities about you is how driven you are. You're such a hard worker, and you're determined to achieve your goals. You motivate me to work harder at my job and to worker harder in my studies. You always push me to my full potential. You've taught me so much about dedication, and how to be the very best version of myself.

I know the future holds so many wonderful plans for us. Everyday, we experience new things together. We will always have new adventures to share. We will always have many opportunities to make great memories together. I can't imagine my life without you. Everyday, I fall in love with you more, and everyday, I realize how thankful I am for you. You're the light of my life, and I love you to pieces!

Love always,

Meridith
