I am marrying the man who makes me question my sanity if I don’t commit to a life with him. I’m marrying the man who has the most beautiful eyes I have ever gazed in. I’m marrying the man who moves in the kindest, sexiest, goofiest way I have ever witnessed. I am marrying the man who’s one in a million, my kind of extraordinary.

The man who isn’t my soulmate. Or, the center of my world. The man who is my best friend instead. The one I can live without but choose not to.

I am marrying the man who I always believed existed but never thought I would be lucky enough to meet. I’m marrying the man who makes me run out of sleep because I want to spend my nights with him. But inspires me to wake-up early in the morning to experience the beauty of life, to give back, to engage in the conversation, to be a part of something big. I’m marrying the man who brings me back to the most magical moments of my life.

The man whose arms are the ones I belong to. The man whose smile instantly demolishes my fears. The man whose hips dance perfectly with mine. The man whose lips surprise me with how well they understand me.

I am marrying the man who makes me feel safe. I’m marrying the man who I don’t second guess the realness and the depth of my connection with or wonder for a moment if he’s the one for me. I’m marrying the man who sings lullabies to my fear of losing him to some deadly disease or an unfortunate accident.

I am marrying the man who loves me the way no other man was brave enough to love me. The man who takes care of me in the way my mother looks after me. The man who loves my curly hair, the shape of my body, all my tattoos, my obsession with the sky and my terrible jokes. The man who meets me half way especially when it comes to cooking. The man who resets my standards for a partnership and redefines my comprehension of intelligence. The man who travels. The man who reads. The man who connects. The man who cares.


I’m marrying the man who sees me close enough to how I see myself; not broken, not perfect, not lost. Just beautifully, tragically, unapologetically.. a unique human in the making.
