I wouldn’t trade it for anything, because these four years with you have been the best time of my life. Everything we’ve been through, every memory, good and bad has been worth it to get to this moment right here. Through the fun times and the rough times, being able to say I love you to the person you truly do love is a feeling that is indescribable. You’ve helped me through so many tough times and taught me so much about how I can better myself.”

Thank you for making me better, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow with you! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us because I couldn’t imagine my life without you T. Your dad told me something that day that’s always stuck with me. He told me that if I wanted to be with you I’d have to be sure to take care of you and to always respect you. Taylor, there has been no job more fun, and no responsibility I’ve had more pride in than being your man, and also being your best friend! I pray we have so many more adventures to go on and even more stories to tell. I love you with everything I’ve got baby girl❤️ – Austin.”
