I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you
I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you
I'll miss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Even let ya hold the remote control
So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you - The Wedding Singer
I remember the first day I ever met Michelle... I was a Sr. at Liberty University, and here comes in a spunky hockey loving freshman, straight from the north. She was in my quad, and many were the nights I sat with her room-mates as they belted show tunes at the top of their lungs. Fast forward a few months, and this friend group asked me to take "friend pictures." So we found an abandoned building in the middle of downtown lynchburg and climbed up burned out spiraling steps until we found a really cool vintage couch at the top of the stairs. It was meant to be.
I hadn't seen MIchelle in almost 6 years when she wrote me with the good news that she was going to be marrying the love of her life, and wanted to know if I could come up to Massachusetts to do it. It was the prefect time of year and the leaves were magical as we made the journey up from NC to lovely Massachusetts. When we got there and finally got to see Michelle and Ryan together, it filled our hearts with joy.. these two were definitely in love, in sync, best friends, and really what else can you ask for in life?
