The Valentine’s Day Present that Stole My Heart

On Valentine’s Day, Future Husband decided to create a Twitter account through which he used the vast power of social media to publicly share the ballad of Jim and Katie from the perspective of our dog Vin. As is the case with Twitter feeds, the story is meant to be read from bottom to top. So without further ado, please sit back, relax and enjoy the most thoughtful gift I’ve ever received.

Happy Valentine’s Day, @KAS27.

    Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! This is our story, which Future Husband tweeted for me as an epic poem last year. In just three short months, we’ll push our journey forward still further with our “I do’s” and I’ll be married to my best friend and the guy of my dreams.
