St Patrick's Day is now one of my favorite holidays. For me (and us) its more than just wearing green (and pinching people who aren't wearing green).
The simple phrase "Happy St Patties Day" was in a way the reason our relationship started. I remember I was on vacation in Georgia visiting my family, and looking through my phone. I saw his name and randomly decided to text him that phrase. Before this text, I just knew him as a cute, funny, flirtatious guy in my singles ward. This message led him to invite me to sit by him at church that coming Sunday, and so I did. We hit it off from there.
I look back on our wonderful year together and realize it has been the best year of my life. From our flirty first dates, Jazz games, Sneaking into the Rice Eccles Stadium, texting eachother all day long while working, meeting eachother's familys, going on hikes, our "summer of celebration", going to the park, late nights and losing sleep just so we could see eachother after work, the engagement, planning a wedding with you, our wedding day, all up to this very moment right now. I wouldn't change a single thing and I know it is only going to get better.
I love you Mitch! Here's to a whole year of you being involved in my life. I couldn't ask for anymore and I am so blessed to have you as a husband. I somehow got lucky and caught the best fish in the sea. :-)
St Patricks day will always be special for us, and mean a little more than what the holiday actually entails. We have a deeper meaning to the St Pattys day that we celebrate. :-)
