A year ago today @Matt and I celebrated our engagement with our friends. That night I was filled with elation about the idea of becoming his wife. I was ecstatic about the future we were planning.

That future has changed - but my love for him hasn’t. I’m getting to a place where I can look at our pictures, think about the memories, hear his deep voice in my mind... and not completely crumble.

He was home to me. Even through our struggles, he made happy everyday. We always said, “I love you,” to each other everyday.

We never got to say “I do,” but he’ll forever be connected to my heart, my soul, my world. I wish he were here to make new memories. But that won’t keep me from bringing him with me as I continue my journey.

He’ll forever be the love of my life - the best friend I’ve ever had. And the reason for me to keep helping others. #MyHeart #MyMotivation

I love you, Matt. ♥️
