Four years. We started talking four years ago, we said "I love you" four years ago. From Chicago to Champaign-Urbana to Manchester, NH to Cambridge, MA, with more late nights and late flights than I care to remember, more love and devotion than I can describe, and more acceptance of my tendencies to show utter obsession with anything I’m doing than I could possibly have expected, my relationship with Jess has flourished, and I couldn’t be happier to be tying the knot tomorrow.
To all my friends who helped me get there, thank you. Thank you for your support, in thick and thin, for richer/poorer, etc. Okay, so I don't need to write vows to all of you, but it's true that without the support of the people who have shown us such care, we would never have gotten this far. Thank you.
To new beginnings! To life, to happiness, to friendship, to love.
