Dear Fionn

Two years ago, I jumped off the cliff of reason and into the unknown. I'd fallen in love, hard, and even though you had been a total stranger on the street in Berlin just five months before, there I was, vowing to love and cherish you til death did us part. Then, just to convince everyone I really was a little crazy, I hopped on a plane to Germany with you a few days later.

The past two years have been so action packed. We have had incredible adventures, seen the world, grappled with life in a foreign land, made each other crazy and made each other laugh til our sides hurt.

Some days I still can't believe you're mine and that this is my life. That THIS is my love story. It seems so romantic and awesome and beyond what I even thought possible.  I love your adventurous spirit and your kind heart and the way you remember exactly how I like my tea or when I need a piece of chocolate or a hug. Sometimes you know me better than I know myself. I love all the adventures we've had and all the ways you challenge me. I love how steadfast and honest you are. I just love you.

Two years went by in a flash, and standing before you saying those vows feels like yesterday. I can't wait for the next year and all the new things it'll bring. I'm glad you'll be by my side.

Happy anniversary!
