A love like Johnny and June

So yesterday I came across an article on the internet about love letters from famous people to their loves. One of them just really stuck with me because I am huge huge fan of Johnny Cash. He wrote the sweetest hand written letter to his 2nd wife June Carter Cash. This is a birthday letter to her written in 1994 which wasn't that long ago really.  It was voted by the BBC the most romantic love letter of all time.  Johnny died in 2003 soon after June passed.
With Valentines day this weekend- the love between the two of them are inspiring.

We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.
But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.
Happy Birthday Princess.

How sweet are they?!  Now I know that he was married when he met June (hence Ring of Fire) but he was so in love with June and his first wife also remarried and lived happily ever after.


Do you have any plans for Valentines Day? I am taking Friday off to get some stuff done and I will pick up something for Todd then.  I love being married and having a Valentine!
