.. THIS IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE REALLY CHEESY - READ AT YOUR OWN RISK ..
in april of 2012 i wrote a facebook status titled "to the kid i'm crushing on". it went like this:
you are so perfect. everything about you. i recognize your little habits, your gestures, the way you speak, and i still can't manage to find a single flaw. you're incredible. your very presence makes me so happy. sometime i wonder if you smile because of me as much as i smile because of you.
now thinking back, that seems absolutely insane. that made us what.. freshmen in high school? i mean, dude! i admitted to facebook (indirectly) that i had a crush on you freshman year! fast forward around four years and boom - you and i are finally together, experiencing our hectic young adult lives together. we've been together for 587 days as of this very second which breaks down into over nineteen months.. it hasn't been perfect nor easy, but i can honestly say i wouldn't trade it for anything in the entire world. you are my nerd, my stud, and my best friend. you are my comfort, my sanity, and my heart. you are my favorite. there are endless things that i wish i could remember to thank you for, but here's a start: i want to thank you for loving me endlessly.. even when i'm being a huge brat, for being so patient with me.. even when i'm being stubborn, for always making time for me.. even when you would rather be gaming with your friends or sleeping because you are too tired from work, for sitting through my rants and talking things out with me.. even if my thoughts are petty, for each and every time you call me beautiful.. even if my makeup is smeared/gone or my hair looks like a bird's nest, for always lifting me up and never knocking me down. i want to thank you for being the man i can fall in love with over and over again, day after day - and most importantly i want to thank you for letting me love someone as amazing as you, and loving me just the same. it's so special how easy it is to share our deepest selves with each other. every memory we share together has a piece of my heart. from cuddling all night watching starwars or supernatural to adventuring all day through the pnw. it's so easy for me to call you my boyfriend, but you're so much more than that. you're my partner in crime, my dinner date, my pillow, my cheerleader, and the love of my life.
wherever this road takes us, i'm so grateful that i am walking it with you. i love you to tatooine and back - always.
