YES

Five years ago today, as I sat shivering under a blanket on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, my high school sweetheart asked me to be his wife. My answer then was "yes," and if he asked me again today it would still be "yes," and it will always be "yes." It was the easiest (and best) decision I've ever made, and I would answer the same way a million times more.

More than ever, recently I have been reminded how lucky I am to have Eric. He supports me, he makes me smile, he comforts me when I'm sad, he cares for me when I'm sick, he makes me laugh. We have so much fun together, whether it be doing some great exciting New York thing, or just holding hands on the couch while we watch TV. He is all I need, and he makes me so happy. We have made so many great memories in the past five years and have so many more left to make together in the years ahead of us.

I love you, Eric! I'm so proud to be your wife. Thank you for asking me that beautiful question, and thank you for making it so easy to say "yes."
