A Love Letter to My Boat This Valentine’s Day

Dear Betsy,

This Valentine’s Day, I wanted to take some time to let you know just how much you mean to me. We’ve shared some great moments together and there are still so many great moments to come. Sure, we’ve had our ups and downs (remember that time with the 10 foot swells?) but we’ve always persevered and we are stronger because of it.

Every day, you cross my mind and I think about you constantly. When I’m at work and times are stressful, knowing that you will be waiting for me is so comforting. I often find myself gazing out the window, daydreaming about being with you when we aren’t together.

I remember the day we met, it was love at first sight. To be honest, when I first laid eyes on you, you looked so rich and elegant that I questioned myself at first. I thought, “I don’t have enough money to be with her” and “she is too high maintenance.” Boy, was I wrong. Granted, every successful relationship takes some work, but that’s what makes it so satisfying. And, when I take you out and everyone is staring, I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.

My friends all love you too. Sometimes, I get a little defensive because I’m not sure who they like better, me or you, but that just goes to show how amazing you are. They talk about you constantly and tell me how lucky I am that I found you. I have to say that I agree. The fact that you can spend entire weekends with us really says something about you. You’re basically part of the crew.

What is most important to me, though, is how much my parents love you. They adore you. They always want to see you and spend time with you. It really warms my soul that we can all spend quality time together. It’s like you’re part of the family.

In closing, it’s really impossible to put into words how much joy, laughter and good times you’ve brought into my life. From the minute I laid eyes on you, I always knew we would sail off into the sunset. They say “there are many fish in the sea,” well, I consider myself lucky that I found a partner willing to help me catch them all.

I might have the key to your ignition, but you have the key to my heart.

Love always,

The Captain
