Dear Jake ...

I like you because I don't know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then
I like you because because because
I forget why I like you but I do

So many reasons
On the 4th of July I like you because it's the 4th of July
On the fifth of July, I like you too
If you and I had some drums and some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE

See what I mean?
Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again.

{full poem}

I never knew where this was from, but right after your wedding, I added the lines from your vows to my favorite quotes section on facebook. I just quoted you because you are where I heard it. :)

So thanks for the missing link! :)

hope you're doing wonderful, darling. sorry we didn't make it over to enjoy st. germain's with you! but the summer is still young. :)
