Here's to a life forever changed.

Nine years ago, a sudden loss of breath gave significance to my life. The world I knew unexpectedly receded as she walked into the room. Sound escaped my ears. Breath escaped my lungs. A coffer inside me shattered and poured unknown emotion throughout my frame. I tried to revert, but I was frozen in her sight. Taken. Nearly paralyzed. Somehow words formed, spoken to bachelors seated beside me. "I'm going to marry that girl."

Two years later, I did.

And I've yet to recover. I doubt I ever will.

Hailey, here's to giving my life meaning, indescribable rapture and optimism of eternities.

Happy Seventh Year Anniversary. I forever love you.

Steve? Is that you? That was so sweet! You two are the best. And I was there for it all - hairy legs and wrinkly wedding dress on the wedding day and all!
