To My Valentine

The Top 10 things
about YOU!!!

#1 Your Hair: of course this has to be at the top of the list, it’s the very first compliment I gave you on our very first date and it’s still true!!!

#2 You’re my Bestest* Friend in the whole wide world: your love, loyalty, honesty, perspective, sense of humor, listening ear, and willingness to do anything to help me progress and be happy says it all.

#3 You’re a Rock Star at heart: your plethora of concert and Beatles t-shirts, 60 bazillion gigs of music, and the fact that you know every word to just about every song you’ve ever listened to makes you a Rock Star. Without you, I would have never attended any other concert besides Debbie Gibson!

#4 You’re a walking Spanish/English Dictionary and Editor: Captain Spanish, a nickname you received in the mission, still holds true today. I can ask you anything about either language and chances are, you have the answer. On my humble days, I admit that my own language skills are what they are today because of YOU.

#5 You’re an Awesome Dad: the way Sofia lights up every time she sees her Papi is priceless. I love the way you teach and read to her. I’m so grateful and lucky you’re the father of my children.

#6 You’re Tall, Dark, and Handsome: your good looks still make me melt! As I always tell you, your GQ style wardrobe always looks hot!

#7 Your ability to learn and perfect anything: one of the greatest life lessons you’ve taught me is that we can learn anything we put our heart and mind to. You’re an amazing example of the dedication and diligence greatness requires.

#8 You’re Apple Computers’ #1 Fan: between the weekly tutorials you like to give me on the latest apple product, or some sweet function on our iMac, Abby, you’re the biggest Apple fan I know. As a self-proclaimed Apple Missionary, you have converted many to Apple computers and have touched many lives through Apple’s innovative technologies.

#9 You love to hold my hand: I still remember the first time you held my hand on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. I was in heaven in that moment and still am each time we walk hand in hand.

#10 You’re MY VALENTINE!!!!!! I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world. You were so worth waiting for and I couldn’t ask for more. I love you, Ryan, thanks for "being mine."

* I know, “Bestest” is not a real word. wink wink.

Oh, Valentine, I'm speechless. No one has ever said such wonderful and thoughtful things about me. I love the part about your "humble days" — trust me: in mine too, Storm, mine too.

If anyone ever wanted to know me, you just described me in ten ways a la perfección . This is the best "Valentine" I've ever received from anyone. Thank you so much. I'm flattered, to be honest.

I love you too, Valentine!
