I’ve been writing this letter for two and a half years now, but this is a first. This time, this letter is a love letter
As some of you may know by now, I will be tying the knot with Miss Sarah Lankford.
I’m not nervous at all. I’m really excited honestly. I’m happy, and relieved that I have some closure on what the next phase of my life is going to be like.
We don’t have official plans yet, but it’s going down soon. Stay tuned, friends, for more solid plans and invitations.
I thought she was pretty cute when I first met her. When I found she also enjoyed rock ’n’ roll, throwing frisbee, walks on the beach, having dinner and a movie?and newspapers?we were pretty much inseparable.
We actually met at a newspaper, and after we both left that company, it was she who encouraged me to begin The Pulse and realize I’d be crazier to not publish it than to take the plunge and open the business.
The Pulse would not be around if it were not for her?it’s all her fault, ha!
But now I have something more important than an entertainment magazine to worry about?a marriage.
After four years I realized not marrying her would be crazier than marrying her. Getting married is easy, parting would be too hard to handle. How lonely would I be without her? I love her.
Will we be perfectly happy and carefree and in a magical state of blissful love forever? No, but I’ve learned that nothing is perfect and things rarely work out exactly how they’re planned.
So, will we irritate each other sometimes and say things we don’t really mean and make each other’s blood boil? Probably. I think we can limit those times, though.
But that’s OK. Because a team is greater than the sum of its parts. We’re going to help each other’s dreams come true and make our lives so much better together than they could ever be apart.
Here’s to us Sarah. It’s going to be an adventure.
