Happy Wedding Day!

Dear Patrick (aka My Beau),

I can't believe that after 4 years of dating, tomorrow I become your wife.  I can't help but reflect on what an amazing 4 years it has been and how all of that will culminate into something forever very soon.

I feel so lucky to have met the perfect person for me.  You are kind, sweet, intelligent, handsome, fun, and there is never a dull moment with you around.  The fact that you and I are together is proof to me that not only does God exist, but that He is very active in my life.  You are EXACTLY who I always envisioned I would spend my life with.  You respect me; you always want me to succeed in life; you are my biggest cheerleader; you are always there to support me (even if it means toting an unruly doggy all around Nashville to make sure I have enough water during a half marathon); you "rescue" me from snow storms; you travel with me; you expose me to so many new things; you keep me from getting too stressed out over silly stuff; and you LOVE me!  What more could I ask for?!?!

Several years ago, when it seemed that so many of my friends were getting married and meeting the right person, I remember complaining to my mom, "WHEN would I meet the right guy?"  She always told me to just be patient...that God would only give me someone very special and very unique.  I always thought she was just trying to make me feel better, but then I met you, and I knew EXACTLY what she was talking about!  You are the unique and special person I have been waiting for!

I can't wait to see what the future holds for us, and I'm sure that no matter what ups and downs come our way that we come through it even stronger than we started.

I love you very much!
Melissa (aka Melrose)
