His and Hers

Our house full of girls will be welcoming a tall friend to the family, and we could not be more thrilled or excited! We will officially become husband and wife very soon and I will fill in all of the details from the here and now. But really, we are so excited. So happy, and truly just giggling with excitement and joy. The girls are beyond delighted that they get to keep Kevin forever and no longer have to share. Stella has placed an airplane on my dresser so that a boy can stay there; because duh, airplanes are for boys. The Tolbert's have welcomed Kevin to the family with more sarcasm and scrutiny than ever before and have gained more and more respect for him because he didn't run far away from the chaos. He really actually enjoys them.

There are no words I could type that would give justice to how happy I feel; to how calm and peaceful he makes my life. There is reason and rhyme to the things that happen, and without a shadow of doubt he is my reason. He is my balance. He is the other half to my quirks and flaws, making them whole. He is the why to my because.
He is the granola to my chocolate cake.

I want to take care of him when he is happy, sad or even broken. I want to bake for him and surprise him with things because I know he appreciates that. I want to be a part of his family, but make our own family with the girls. I want to hear about his day and talk about nothing with him for hours. I genuinely want to be a better person, because he deserves that.
I love him and am so very grateful that my life led me, and the girls, to him. I wouldn't want it any other way.

love love
mrs. tall friend-to-be
