How Did I Get So Lucky?

To This:

Sometimes, I just stop and think... "How on earth, did I get SO lucky?"

Apparently I'm not the only one in the relationship.
However, I tend to keep those sentimental thoughts to myself.
Hunter on the other hand, never lets me forget that he feels so lucky.
I could really learn a thing or two from him...

As I was getting ready in the bathroom the other day, I put the music on my phone on shuffle just as any other day, and proceeded to get ready.
A song came on that I used to listen to in high school, like on repeat.
At first I just started to sing along, but then a flood of memories came back to me as i realized I would sing that song while day dreaming about married life with Hunter back in the day.
Then things got even more sentimental when a song I would listen to while he was on his mission came on. 
And to make matters even more emotional, the song we danced to at our wedding came on.
I got teary eyed but quickly tried to brush it away.
Hunter was lying on our bed but popped up and laughed when I started to dance along. 
He looked at me, shaking his head, with that smile I fell in love with and said,
"How did I get so lucky?"
And, I always remind him that he just so happened to dive into that pool the summer of 2008 right as I walked in. Which totally made me fall in love with him right then and there. But really, my heart melted just as it did back when we had our first kiss that summer night in 2009. And, when he first told me he loved me. And, when he asked me to marry him. And, it still melts over the simple little things. Because after 6 years of dreaming of these moments we're experiencing now, I can't help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world. 

All my love,
