“We found love right where we are.” ~ Thinking Out Loud, Ed Sheeran.
Dear Davilynn and DJ – first of all, you kids impress the heck out of me. Dae, your strength and beauty inside and out. Your obvious love for your friends and family. Your thoughtfulness and openness to laughter and tears and kindness. I’ve told you this before – and your mom – but if my girls grow up to be like you, I’d be the proudest mama there ever was.
DJ, your quiet, unassuming confidence like nothing fazes you. Your deep, deep love for Dae that’s at the same time not showy or over the top. When you opened Dae’s note before you walked down the aisle, for just a split-second, your eyes glistened. It almost made me drop my gear to give you a hug (but I didn’t).
It’s always a privilege to witness as two people start their lives together, but none more so than you guys for all the work you’ve put into making it all come together, the dedication you have to each other and the commitment to the journey.
Love you both to the moon and back.
