three years

I never post on Saturdays, so you know this is a big deal.
Today is our three year anniversary. Craig and me. The two of us. Three years, two apartments and one dog later, we're still here.

Craig, thank you for being my best friend. For being there for me. For supporting me no matter what. For being my ultimate vote of confidence when mine is lacking. Thank you for loving the shit out of me and for making me laugh every day. Thank you for giving me the kind of family I never had and for letting me know it's ok to cry. Thank you for being my professional outfit photographer and loving every little aspect of my blog.

Thank you for being goofy with me and for indulging my weird quirks. Thank you for reminding me not to be so serious all of the time. And for really helping me out when I need it.

Two years ago, when I graduated from Hartford I wrote this in my final column to you:
And to you, one of the most wonderful additions to my life, I can only say thank you. Thank you for faithfully reading my writing every week and for letting me know what you thought of my section or my column or anything that was put in the paper. Thank you for loving me through the late nights and the breakdowns. And thank you for giving me the confidence I needed when I couldn’t seem to find it.
It all still rings true. And I love you more and more every day.
You (and Toby) are the greatest thing to ever happen to me.

I love you.
