The only future we knew was that he was leaving in a few short weeks after we met, off to Korea for a year, and we had to take full advantage of what little time we had with each other. We knew we wanted to give us a chance, we just never knew that us would lead where it has.
And it has. That first year apart really prepared me for what life would be like after we got married. I think it helped make me the independent woman I am now, that in turn, has helped with all of our separations since our first one.
No one else in this world will ever have my heart and my love as much as he.
To 8 years together, and 80 more years in our future.
