They say the best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more. That plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what you’ve given me. And that’s what I hope to give to you forever. Within the first few weeks of officially calling myself your girlfriend, I knew that you were the man I’d one day marry. I fell in love not only with your patience, gentleness and sincerity but your genuine heart and giving soul. Somehow you’ve made me feel like the luckiest girl alive. Now, as your wife, I promise to always be in love with you like I am today. I promise that when we’re eighty years old, we’ll have just as much fun as we do now even if we both like to be in bed by 11 o’clock at night. I promise to never forget the importance of back scratches, a simple love letter, or a batch of your favourite chocolate chip cookies. With every I do we share I promise to care for, respect and love you not only as my husband but my best friend and partner for life.

I love you, Bear.
