I'm currently revisiting love letters and mementos from past relationships for another writing project I'm working on. I've finally made it past most of the gut-wrenching feelings that they used to cause and I find them pretty interesting now.
When I come across interesting ones I'm going to either type or scan them to share as part of a Love Letters series. This first note is from a birthday card Dave gave me. We had met just 8 weeks before and began our relationship 2 weeks after that. We were madly in love by my birthday and I remember feeling like I had known him for years.
When I'm near a scanner I'll add a few pictures of the card, but for now enjoy the message. The man (and his card) I had thought was so romantic and original was actually one giant cliche in hindsight.
Oh well! It's still cute. Enjoy!
Happy 20th B-Day! You really deserve the world today, bit I couldn't fit it inside the envelope. I hope you get everything that you wish for, & that all your birthday dreams come true...
Also, I want to thank you for making the past two months of my life so special. Before this trip began, I didn't even have you in my life, & now I truly can't imagine life without you. We have already made so many amazing memories together, whether at world-famous locations, or just staying in together.
I know it's your birthday, but if you could give me a lifetime even half as sweet as what you've given me already, I'd be the happiest man alive.
I love you!
