To my Dearest Elaina,
Words cannot express the many joyful years that you’ve given me, and to you, I am greatly thankful! I can still remember the first time I saw you across the room, and how your smile brightened the whole room. (yea, everyone else probably saw me gawking at you with my mouth wide open) You were, and still are, the most BEAUTIFUL girl I have ever seen - the girl of my dreams. I could hardly contain my excitement around you, and you often left me speechless or uttering few intelligent words… Oh l’amour!
I’ll admit it, when we first started dating, I didn’t have the slightest clue of how to treat you, how to behave around you, and where I wanted to go with the relationship; at that time, I was still a boy. You stuck it through, invested, tended, cared, loved, and nurtured our relationship, and for that I thank you!
I love you, and I treasure every moment we have together; I value your efforts, ideas, thoughts, plans, and dreams. I value our friendship - you are my best friend.
Happy Valentine’s Day Elaina Ho!
(I hope you’re looking forward to the waffles!)
