Two years ago you came into my life and showed me what it was like to love someone for all they are. You took my hand and ran off with my heart without ever looking back. Sitting here reflecting on these two years together, I can say that it hasn’t been easy but it has been so worth it. There have been many ups and downs... we have been to the dark side and back over to the light, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. On a day where we celebrate love in all its beautiful forms, we can also celebrate a beautiful milestone in our relationship. I can’t wait to see where year three takes us, but one thing that will always remain is my unyielding love for you. I love you to the moon and back D. Happy Anniversary my Valentine. @32double_d
