"something about you I just had to have"


The first thing that caught my eye was your smile at the lake, then I sat back and watched as your beautiful personality spilt out. From that day I knew there was something about you and I just had to have. From that day we grew closer and closer. Until we became almost inseparable. It was then I knew that you were the one. From that day I fell in love with you over and over again, but a little harder than the last time. It was then that I knew I couldn’t live without you.



I’ve gone to school with you for years and have passed you in the halls who knows how many times. Never would I have thought that going to a lake with mutual friends would have lead to the amazing relationship that we have. I love to talk about it so you probably already know, but I knew I had a thing for you the second you reached for my hand to help me out of the truck. To me, that is where it all started. Here we are almost two years later and I can’t help but become overjoyed with the thoughts of someday marrying you, sharing a home with you, and raising kids with you. I can say with so much confidence that I will be with you for the rest of my life, and I promise you that. I am so thankful for you and your kind heart and I am not sure how I got so lucky, but thank you for being who you are and for always continuing to love me. I love you Donald Thomas McClean.
