Just wanted to tell you that I really care about your daughter in a way that’s new to me. She’s excited about being engaged and I know it’s really quick timing. I would just like to tell you that engaged or not, I really do love your daughter. I look forward every day to spending time with her. I know my past situation probably looks bad and I understand that. I really hope you’re okay with all this, and if not, I do understand. Maybe in due time when I can further prove how much she means to me. I realize that from the outside looking in, it seems way too soon. I have never been engaged before because I’ve never cared for someone so much. …. I look forward to getting to know you better in the future.

How many people can actually say that their fiances texted your mom after you proposed to him? How many people can say that their fiances actually went to your mom to ask for your hand in marriage?
And I will always remember both of those days! Because they have led to the happiest day of my life. And have changed my life forever! And started a brand new chapter which we have been living in for 6 months. :)) We have been together for going on 9 months. And I couldn’t be happier.
Like every couple, we have our ups and downs, but with Ryan, I am not scared to. I use to hide when I was having problems in relationships. I was engaged to Landon’s dad and was okay with it because I knew I could always divorce him, until his mom told me…
When you marry in this family, divorce is not an option, you work through it!
Those words scared me and shook me outta my fake happiness. With Ryan, I proposed! I don’t think about divorce, because with Ryan, it isn’t an option to me! I am sssooo happy with him, that I am determined to do whatever I need to, because we want to make this work. I am going to make sure to do my part!!
Ryan, I love you! I don’t know why God had you choose me, but I thank him every day you did! You are an amazing husband and father for Landon! And I can’t wait to watch as our family grows.
I hope one day, we will be able to welcome your son in. I would love to meet him, to let him and Landon get to know each other, and be able to be your son’s friend. I bet he is an amazing kid!! (after all, he is a mini you!) I love you, Ryan! I can’t wait to see us down the road in 10, 20, or 50 years celebrating and still so in love! I love you!!
