“Nathan, it’s been said that there’s one word that will free us from the weight and pain of life. And that word is love. And I believe that. That doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been hard, or that it won’t be. It just means that I’ve found a stillness and a bravery in myself with you. You make me brave. And I will love you until the end of time.”
Over the past year I’ve learned so much about life and love. And even if I could, I wouldn’t take back all the bad stuff that’s happened between us, ‘cause it brought us here, to this moment, this river. Marry me, Haley. Marry me again in front of all our friends and our family.
I’m not the most eloquent speaker, so I thought I would borrow a few words from Shakespeare. ‘Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.’ When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same. I look at Nathan and Haley and some how I feel safer. I don’t know if I can explain that, but they give me hope. And, I’m afraid say it out loud because maybe if life finds out it’ll try to beat it out of them and that will be a shame. Because, we all can use a little hope sometimes, you know. That feeling that everything’s going to be okay and that there’s going to be someone there to help make sure of that. So, here’s to Nathan and Haley, and here’s to hope, and here’s to a love that will not alter. -Brooke Davis
You’re lucky. You’ve fallen in love with your best friend. The person who accepts you at your worst, the person who laughs at your stupid jokes, the person who knows you better than you know yourself. I would kill to spend the rest of my life with that person.
