i love looking through memorabilia. it is like my favorite thing ever. looking through old pictures, reading old journals, yearbooks, etc. i even love watching home videos. i'm not sure why. i think it's because i love the life i have lived, i love the people in my life, i love the experiences i've had, and memories i've made. i have such good memories.
i was looking through my high school / college journal today (for writing inspiration) and i came across so many funny and meaningful things. one was a letter to me, that was folded and tucked between pages from kirsti. it contains the nicest things you can possibly say to another person. i love kirsti. i am so grateful that she has been such a big part of my life for so long, and i am so grateful that we are as much best friends as ever.
another letter i found tucked in was from tyler. it was a letter attatched to my christmas present at our first christmas gift exchange, when we had been dating for 3 months. i had to put it on here, cause it is the cutest ever, and so tyler. i love tyler. i'm so glad i married him.
and i quote...
Merry Christmas Nicole
I know when you read this I will probably be sitting by your side, so I won't write a big letter or any gay stuff. I just wanted to thank you for all you do, you are such an example for me. Your dedication to serve the Lord is awesome. You always strive so hard to be better and to help those around you be the best. I'm sorry I get in bad moods almost every second, but I'm glad my girlfriend is patient with me. I'm so glad I have had the chance to meet you and be your boyfriend, because it has changed my life. I have learned so much from you (sometimes too much). I'm excited to see what lays in store for the future. Hope you have a merry christmas with your family.
Love, Tyler (your favorite boyfriend ever)
