today marks the end of the second chapter and the beginning of the third chapter of this book that we are writing together.
it’s hard to believe that it has been 730 days…17,520 hours…1,051,200 minutes…63,072,000 seconds and you have been by my side through it all.
we have traveled 55,000 miles together…explored 35 states…used 2,200 gallons of gasoline…and spent about $6,050 on fuel.
we have gone on photographic expeditions and have taken thousands of photos…we have collected rocks, leaves, coasters and postcards.
we have feasted on cheese curds at sheetz and peruvian food at chantilly bakery in new jersey. we gobbled down the best pizza ever in new york.
you have taken me on one trip to minnesota and two trips to pennsylvania…as well as so many trips to disneyland that i lost count.
you have held my hand through difficult situations. you have been the ever present calm voice of reason, encouragement and support for me.
you are the first person i think of when i wake up in the morning and the last person that my mind dwells on as i fall asleep.
i have given you my heart and mind…they belong to you now. you are the person that i waited my whole life for…that’s why i chose you.
