Dear MC,

Thank you for these magical 7 years together.
Thank you for introducing yourself, for being so open and friendly and then deciding to reply to my first message. Thank you for investing the time in getting to know me and allowing us to form a special bond. Thank you for being a true gentlemen and inviting me for that first drink and then for getting up off the couch to meet me out and sharing our first kiss in the rain. Thank you for thinking I was worth all of that.

Thank you for learning all about me and for accepting me for who I am, my good traits and my bad, my baggage and my family and friends. Thank you for teaching me so much: patience, understanding, trust and respect. Thank you for sticking by me through rough times with friends, family, studies, jobs, finance and so much more. Thank you for believing in me and being my constant support, knowing that I could and can achieve anything I set my heart on.

Thank you for showing me the world, literally. Thank you for opening my eyes to different people, situations and cultures. For spoiling me with all things material: holidays, cars, gadgets, clothing and jewelry. But also giving me all that you can’t physically see: love, respect, care, trust and joy.

Thank you for being my best friend, my boyfriend, my fiance, my husband, my lover, the father of our child and my biggest fan.
Thank you for choosing me to spend the rest of your life with and for making and keeping your promise and commitment. Thank you for the many laughs and tears, endless photographs and treasure memories, and for being the best you can be.

Thank you for sweeping me off my feet and changing my life in so many ways. Thank you for 7 of the best years of my life. I look forward to so many more… A lifetime, an eternity.

I love you MC, to the moon and back
