so sweet it makes your teeth hurt
on this valentine's day, i realize that i have known my jake for almost 15 years. it blows me away. i remember meeting him so clearly, and while he was only 18 back then, (way too young for my 21!) he exuded kindness and generosity, and he was so cute. we were friends for a long time, and oddly, i think other people had idea that it would end up being more. we didn't see each other for a couple of years and then started hanging out again. he was all growed up! he just won my heart over. no matter how much crazy nonsense i attempted, he was just unshaken. he didn't get mad. he didn't get annoyed. he sees something in me that no one else sees. not even me. for all of the flaws i have, and there are many, he really loves me. i never feel insecure. i never feel unloved...or even unliked. in my life, i have never felt that kind of love. and i love him just as much. i am never sick of him. he is never boring. he is adorable. even my granny, who doesn't even like most of her grandkids loves jake. she couldn't stop staring at him and told me that i was really lucky to have such a handsome and kind husband. you don't know her, but that is a BIIIIG compliment. and i agree with her. he is pretty great. nay, not pretty great...he is the most amazing person i have ever had the luck to know. he rocks.
and he is gorgeous (like a moviestar my mom says, who also doesn't throw compliments arount, believe me. i don't either.) and has great taste in music, and for me, an utter music nazi, that is important. i have not the stomach for bad music. and he adores our cats. every newborn kitten i have brought home (2 so far) jake has not even made a peep about finding a home for. as soon as he holds them, they are home. they are his babies. he loves them to cuddle up to him when he sleeps, as you see in a zillion different photos. he is a snuggly, huggy, kissy, sweet boy.
happy valentine's day jakie! everyone loves you, but not as much as i do.
and happy valentine's to all of you! mwah mwah mwah!
oh, and i wanted to just send this valentine to pavel from his little girlfriend, izzy...
