My Flawlessly - Imperfect Love Affair

"Five years ago, our journey began, chasing down this cure, no plan in hand. Just your pulse, my racing guide in the dark, just knowing with conviction from the start. The moment your eyes made an introduction, I felt my second violent breath of life. Flawless to the point of being godly, yet I fell hard for your imperfections. And now we're slightly weathered, we're slightly worn. Our hands grip together, eye to eye through the storm, yet I still believe in ever after with you. Cause life is a pleasure with you by my side, and there ain't no current in this river we can't ride. I still believe in ever after with you. Nothing compares to the good times. Feels like we're floating, when the rest have to climb. You made me believe in love, and not the perfect kind, a real messy beautiful twisted sunshine. Emotions, volcanic eruptions, we both still care, so we're still alive. Tunnel vision, determination. I want you, I want to make it right."
If you’re familiar with the song Ever After by Bonnie Bailey, then you got it right, the above is its lyrics (excerpt and with alteration). I like it so much that I used this song to kick-off the open-dance during our wedding reception. I think it perfectly describes our relationship. We may not have the perfect one, we may have flaws as individuals, but love and care are enough to make everything amendable and help us live happily ever after.

And yes, fairy tales are real. As of the moment, we’re here in this fairyland called Misibis Bay enjoying the luxury of what life has to offer, all in celebration of such milestone in our life – in our family life, our 5th anniversary.

Cheers to forever!
