Love-Simple & Complex

{via Le Love, via tumblr}

We got a special card in the mail to wish us congratulations on our engagement and I loved the words so much I had to share them with you.

LOVE /’luv/

(noun, verb, and everything in between)

1: holding hands, walking in the rain, and not even knowing it’s raining 2: being there for each other (no matter what) 3: that certain look 4: trust 5: passion 6: the best kind of friendship 7: gets better with time 8: a fairy tale that does come true

I’ve never felt so connected to the words and message on a card. They’re so simple, but Corey and I relate to every single one of these. My heart filled with emotion when I read it, and it made me think about how happy I am to have found the person I am going to spend the rest of my life with. Honestly, for a time in my life I really wasn’t sure if I’d be lucky enough to experience this kind of true, amazing love. To sit back and think about how I’m experiencing it every day and will get to every day for the rest of my life, for better or worse, makes me happier than I could every explain in words (and I’m a writer, so that’s saying a lot!).

Alright, enough of the sappy stuff! Hopefully that didn’t bore you. Up next, photos from our weekend in Antwerp—finally!

  1. I can totally relate – there was a time for me too when I thought True love just wasn't for me….And when I think about how much I am loved, it overwhelms me….We are lucky people….it IS a rare thing to find someone who will continue to adore you despite everything.

  2. So sweet – I remember years ago feeling so frustrated and downtrodden and I'd made a wish list of everything I dreamed of in a partner someday. I found the list a few weeks after we just got married (this August!) – I started tearing up right away because it described my new husband almost exactly!

    All the very best to you – hope you take the time to enjoy and really savor this happy moment
