“You make me laugh every single day, you support me in so many ways and I adore everything about you…”

“As soon as I met you I knew this could be something special and it is (after a slow start)...,” he continued.

“We’ve had some amazing times, and I’m bursting with happiness to know we will have so many more. I love you with all my heart.”
