Love isn’t perfection

Processed with VSCO with b6 preset

Matty dearest,

Love is a myriad of moments and emotions and stolen smiles. It is text messages and the kisses he leaves on your forehead, it is fears enveloped in laughter and kisses mixed with alcohol. It is holding a new pair of hands and walking in the rain. It is sharing a box of nuggets in the park and studying together by candlelight. It makes you live and helps you forgive. What it isn’t is perfection. In fact, it is anything but. Often, it can be flawed but most other times it is beautiful, just like this moment—covered in light, content, committed, warm, delicious and cuddly.

Love is flawed, a little like me. Love is beautiful, a lot like you.

Love is finding that one person that makes you want to try, I’ve found mine. I found you.

Yours always and in all ways,
