Me oh my—Love doesn’t walk but it flys, 3 roller coaster years since I won a lifelong prize, a queen to fit my friend who’s a king, I can hardly believe it with my own blue eyes, so I tried to capture it in those Missouri skies.
The first time I met her you said “I’m positive this is the one.” And I had never imagined a glance so fast, it was like her diamond smile pierced straight through your best beating heart like a gun.
I will never quite understand just how a structured, well organized man can be so close, mischievous and adventurous with a Rolling Stone like me—a man without a plan,
but you two continued to grow like a rose garden and your romance simmered like heat from a breakfast pancake pan.
You see, before that trip to KC I was a hot mess, tossed about in a whitewater sea with feelings of regress...and now it’s impossible to imagine the weather without you in a floral bow tie and her in flower crown and princess dress.
To say you have brought joy to my life is an understatement at best, so being a groomsman in your special wedding day seemingly, instantaneously put my sorrow and dark days to rest.
I’ve given up on some things but found a way to believe in others, you wouldn’t believe the beauty I see in you both—amongst your gorgeous, sparkling sisters and your dapper, GQ brothers.
The day you asked me to do an art project for you, something to transcend friendship and time—I was never so humbled when I saw the gleam in your eyes, especially wanting something of mine.
To have something for you both, something that could compliment each other like a vodka soda with a twist of lime, I tried to draw up my own experiences like a recipe card, something to add to your culinary cocktail of a lifetime.
You never doubted my ability and always motivate me to be my very best and that’s why I believe in you two so much more than the negativity and all the rest.
Lulu’s was a must have and Stuart Hall was the X that marked the spot—the rest of the drawing you left up to me, just me swimming about my KC thoughts.
You save my life every day even when it’s no fun—rainy days, starry nights but now the fun has just begun.
I knew you were lightning.
