Happy Anniversary Kimberly!

An anniversary. It’s a thing people have to celebrate the annual occurrence of something. More specifically, it is “the yearly recurrence of the date of a past event” or “the celebration or commemoration of such a date.” (from Dictionary.com) It’s commonly used within the context of a relationship, and that’s a sense in which I never thought I would be using the word. I never even figured I would be in a relationship. I certainly never figured I would be in one lasting a year. You must be the best person in the world at putting up with me.

Actually, I know you are. I don’t know anyone else who’s willing to talk to me on a daily basis, and it feels good to not be alone. Also, thank you for watching so many movies and playing Town of Salem with me. You make dealing with all the idiots in that game worth it, just so I have the chance to do something with you. And one of the favorite times of my life is when we actually got to go to the movies together (although it was kind of awkward that that kid was sitting next to us). I’m glad I got to see you again a few days later, but that alone was worth the ten-hour drive across some of the most boring parts of the country (no, seriously, can we just push Mississippi and Alabama into the ocean and build a bridge that replaces the missing roads?).

And one of the proudest moments of my life is that I got to see your graduation. I wouldn’t have missed that for the world. I’m glad to have been there for some of your best moments, and I’m glad that maybe I’ve helped you through a few of the bad ones too. I know you’ve helped me through a lot of bad moments. Thank you so much.

I’m so glad that out of all the people in the world, you let me spend the last year with you. And I look forward to many more. I love you.
