Happy very merry Christmas.

My favorite time.
Probably the best Christmas ever.

Great partner.
Great job I enjoy and earn good money in same time.
Lovely big family always happy and smile.
New boat.
Beautiful weather.
Great waves.
My cute pink surfboard.
Booked flight to Italy.
Business trip to Tokyo.
Hawaii short trip.
... And the beat Christmas present ever!

Life couldn't be better.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of happy family all wrapped up in each other.

The day my life begins.

Emi, today's the day my life begins.

Today I become accountable to someone other than myself.

Together, we can accomplish anything.

Together, we will be stronger than we could ever be alone

I promise to do my best to make our lives better and better from this day forward.

I ask the people here today to witness that I Gavin Dawson, take you Emi Sakai to be my

lawful wedded wife.
