Stumbling blissfully around the wedding blogosphere loading up on ombre cakes, embossed stationary and Navy-inspired chair ribbons, this amazing 1972 love letter written by Ronald Reagan to wife Nancy Reagan perhaps not at all accidentally appeared on our desktop. We just had to share with you all.

Text of the letter is as follows:

State of California GOVERNOR'S OFFICE SACRAMENTO 95814


My Darling Wife

This note is to warn you of a diabolical plot entered into by some of our so called friends - (ha!) calendar makers and even our own children. These and others would have you believe we've been married 20 years.

20 minutes maybe - but never 20 years. In the first place it is a known fact that a human cannot sustain the high level of happiness I feel for more than a few minutes - and my happiness keeps increasing.

I will confess to one puzzlement but I'm sure it is just some trick perpetrated by our friends - (Ha again!) I can't remember ever being without you and I know I was born more than 20 mins ago.

Oh well - that isn't important. The important thing is I don't want to be without you for the next 20 years, or 40, or however many there are. I've gotten very used to being happy and I love you very much indeed.

Your Husband of 20 something or other.

Touching, timeless and just plain charming. If only we could all be so lucky to know this kind of love.
