As I write this, you’re sitting at our dining room table in our tiny Brooklyn apartment, scrunching your nose up and sucking on a lollipop—the kind with gum in the middle—while you prepare the sketches for your fall collection. Fabric swatches surround you like you’re in a very tweedy nest curated by someone from the 1940s. You’re squinting from the sunlight pouring in because you can’t stand closing the shades. Your hair sits on top of your head in a messy bun. You’re not wearing any makeup. You’d hate for me to write this down for posterity, but you’re wearing black leggings and my old Columbia sweatshirt.
And you’ve never looked more beautiful.
I want to tell you in writing how I feel, but words are seriously inadequate. All I can say is I’m so glad you’ve agreed to spend your life with me. I know it’s corny to say I’m the luckiest man on the planet. But I am. I don’t know how we made it through high school without touching each other. We made up for that in college. Now, though, all I want to do is feel your soft skin and kiss your strawberry lips.
I feel like someone long ago knew that we were meant to be together. That we were two halves of a whole. And that we needed to meet and connect so that we could each be the best person we could.
I know I’m certainly a better person for knowing you.
You push me. We go to more places—Venice, Italy, and Venice, California. Every Disneyland that exists. And we’ve tried so many weird foods, it’s amazing we’ve survived.
I guess I just want to say I’m glad I know you. I’m grateful you’ve chosen to spend your life with me. And I want to keep loving you—and that little person in your belly—for the rest of our lives.
I love you. Happy Valentine’s Day.
P.S. It’s not too early to start dressing our child, right? That’s who one of these presents is for. The other one is for you … but perhaps it’s for me. I can’t wait to see you in it.
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.
Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
