I very clearly remember locking myself in a high school bathroom stall and muffling my tears as I chanting “no one will ever love me” over and over again in my head. Boy, was I wrong. Terribly wrong. Fast forward some 15 years later (that was scary to type), and I can’t possibly fathom why this particularly amazing man loves me. Not only loves me, but thinks I am one of the most amazing people he has ever met. Just looking at me makes him smile. I have no idea what sorcery I unknowingly pointed his way, but I am thankful every day that it worked.
Happy birthday, Agustin Sanchez. You are not only my best friend, my husband and my partner in crime, but you are also my hero and inspiration. You are the reason I laugh and smile with such ease. You are my sanity. You are my happy place. You never stop surprising me, and I know you never will.
