Today is our 15th year anniversary of when we first met. You walked into my life and I was forever changed. Even after all these years, if you look at a photo of us from when we first met and compared it to the last photo we will ever take together, nothing has changed except a few extra pounds (okay a lot of extra pounds!! 😂😂🤣🤣) We still look into each other like it was the first day we met. We were lucky to have found each other and continue holding on despite all the odds against us. Sometimes, it amazes me that we even got to where we did. Most days, when I woke up, I had to pinch myself because I couldn’t believe how lucky or happy I was to have you in my life; to be able to call you my partner in crime. We built something that was so impactful, it changed us both for the better. We loved each other on our good days and even more on our worst days. We loved each other with everything we had and always put the other person's happiness before our own. I don’t know what my life would have looked like or where I would be if I hadn’t met you or if we didn’t stay together all these years, but all I know, despite knowing how our story ends, I would never trade in our story, experiences, and memories for anything else.
Thank you for being my dance partner through life. Even though our song has ended, the music is still playing for me, and I will continue to dance in the rain until the rainbows appear again. I love you so much it hurts.
P.S. Thanks for the beautiful sunset today, Babe!! Even through the thick haze of ashes and debris from the camp fire in Chico, a beautiful and glorious sunset was able to shine through. I know you were trying to let me know that you were thinking of me also on this special day.
