Everyday I think about how happy I am to be your love. For this, your 25th birthday, I want to take a look back and revisit the time we've spent together.


I love you so much,
Happy Birthday,

TRAVELING THROUGH LIFE TOGETHER

 

At the time I would never have guessed how much I would one day love you.
This was our first day together, after having just met the night before.

 

After knowing each other less than a week, you accepted my invitation to travel along with me to Phuket.

 

It must have been around this time that you nicknamed me Yong because of my curly hair.

 

Back then we only knew each other for about a week.
All day and night we'd be together, just like we are now :)

 

Our journey continued as we traveled to Ko Lanta.
You showed your love for art drawing this picture, but who would have known that we'd one day have a tattoo shop together?

 

Our magical day snorkeling in Koh Mak;

 

I wish I knew how to read Thai back then.
Then I'd know that you were telling me that you love me.

 

Our first stop in Bangkok
It may not have meant much to you, but I was so excited to show you a fancy hotel.

 

Wat Phra Kaew

 

Remember where this is?
I took you to my old home, Nong Khai. It was your first time going there. You got to meet some of my friends and we got to visit the kids at the orphanage together.

 

I taught you how to swim this day.

You invited me to visit Chiang Mai for a week. Who would have known I'd move in with you and marry you one day?

 


From there our journeys kept on going.

Eating noodles in Pai, Thailand.

Riding a scooter through the mountains.

Snuggling at the Taj Mahal.

Unexpectedly sleeping on a houseboat in Kashmir, India.

Drinking cocoa and taking selfies like we always do in Chiang Mai.

Taking a ride on the River Ganges.

Hugging each other way too much.

Feeling comfortable together even on a really bumpy bus ride.

Traveling to Malaysia together.

And even doing some exploring of caves.


I love you so much Ahm and I'm so happy to be with you.


Always and forever,
Ryan
