6 years.

September 30, 2016

On the 25th September it was mine and Jon’s 6th year together.

To some of you that might not sound impressive but it’s not really about how many years we’re together for, it’s about the journey we have taken together.

You see…when I met you Jon my whole life changed and yours did too. Definitely for the better.
We helped each other grow in so many ways. I see it, I see how we used to be to how we are now.

A lot more in tune with who we want to be and what we want in life.
Watching you grow in to this incredible human being. In fact, you’re SO different but you’re still the same person I fell in love with.

Jon, I am so extremely proud in everything you have done for yourself and for us.
You have risen through the flames and grown some amazing wings which have taken you further than you ever could have imagined.

Look at where we were and where we are now or even better to where we WILL be in a month from now is pretty insane.

This year has been particularly difficult, 2016 has tested our relationship pretty well and I can safely say it hasn’t even made a crack between us.
On the other hand you can flip it and it’s also been a pretty incredible year for us too.

This year has shown me how much things can change in the blink of an eye. We’ve had choices to make, which then lead us to a path we may not have thought we would ever be on. Then you have to walk it and see it through, you have to over come the obstacles or even pretend they aren’t there so you can conquer through it.

We’ve both realised that you have to sacrifice things sometimes to get to where you want to be but you should never have to sacrifice your happiness to the point where you can’t take it anymore and you’re constantly fighting with yourself to feel better.

We’ve nearly made it through this tough ride. Only a few more steps…

As long as I have you by my side I will always be ok. I will always be happy and alive. I know you feel the same.

I can’t wait for our next chapter together…
