Thank you for loving me through all the ugly, for ~literally cooking for me every day, for playing with my hair while we watch baking shows, for waking me up from nightmares to kiss me til I’m back asleep, for making me laugh every second, and for endless cuddles. You are really the best person I have ever known. Your heart is bigger and better than this world will ever deserve. Thank you for giving me someone to miss horribly while I’m away. I love you.”
