The morning of our wedding, he sent me a Starbucks coffee.
He had the concierge bring it up, so here was this guy with white gloves and gold buttons holding a cardboard cup. And looking pretty confused about it too. But Justin just has this way of talking anybody into anything, so instead of asking he just nodded his head and said Miss Bess…..your coffee.
It was a grande. Warm. And on the side of the cup he had written, I love you a latte.
And that in a nutshell is what it is to be married to Justin. It’s warm….and familiar. Comfortable. But at the same time, it’s always an adventure and you never know what’s coming next. And he just has this way of making even the smallest day to day gestures grand. And always, no matter what, making sure I have everything I need just when I need it. All while loving me a whole lot.
And yes, while working in a great pun here & there too.
Justin, every day I find a reason to love you even more. You are my best friend, my closest confidant. Sometimes when we’re sitting next to each other, I forget where I end and you begin. And nothing has ever made me happier.
These are the days, the time is now.
