So in November of 2013 I wrote a piece called "10 Reasons to Love the Man Behind the Queen" in it I listed the top 10 reasons everyone should love a drag queen. As much as those reasons were based on Jeff I generalized them so they would apply to the majority of Drag Queens. As much as Vivian inspires the Diary Jeff inspires me more. He is some one who I look to for strength and encouragement.
There is not a day that he does not amaze me. Now granted some times I'm amazed by how mad he makes me but let's be honest that is any relationship and if we didn't love each other so much we wouldn't aggravate each other as much as we can. It's one side effect of love and it's one I'm perfectly okay with it if it means I have Jeff in my life.
When Jeff and I first met things were very complicated. Part of that complication was caused by our first kiss. Now before Jeff I had my fair share of kisses but I have NEVER experienced one like that kiss before. As cheesy as this may sound it sent shocks through my body. It was at that moment I knew this was more than just a kiss. Some people believe in love at first sight well with Jeff it was love at first kiss. Even to this day his kisses, his touch still sends shocks through my body.
Jeff came into my life at a time when I needed him. To me Jeff was an angel sent to me by my maternal grandmother. I was in a mentally abusive relationship that limped on for 9 years longer than it should have. Jeff helped bring me out of the dark. He showed me I had something to offer not only some one else but the world. He showed me what it was to love and be loved. With Jeff's love and support I went back to school and received not only my Bachelors but my MBA as well. He also encouraged me to rebuild my relationship with my parents. Words can not express what this means to me.
Jeff not only sees me for the man I am but the man he knows I will become. That kind of inspiration is something I am still not accustomed to but something I am very grateful for. Even through all my flaws and mistakes Jeff is there to help pick me up and put me back on track.
We support each other in everything we do. We are each other's biggest fans and as cliché as it is best friends. Yes there are times we probably loose sight of this however in the end we always recognize that we are an unstoppable team. We know together we are so much more than separate. I have been told before even when we are bickering there is always love in our eyes when we look at each other. I was surprised when I heard that but I take care pride in knowing that.
I know that in this crazy journey of life I will always have a travel companion who loves me, supports me, and is always there for me. There is nothing we wouldn't do for one another. We have been there through some incredibly low lows and some amazing high highs. There is not another person on this earth I can see myself with. Jeff is my soul mate, the one who completes me, the one who I want to spend the rest of my life with. If that isn't love than please some one tell me what is.
Our rings are still being designed but the stars are finally aligning for us to marry in Ohio and I couldn't wait any longer to ask you to marry me. So with that being said I only have one more thing to say:
Jeff will you marry me and continue this journey we started as my husband?
