::Another time and place::
Thank you so much, Austin, for enmeshing your life with mine. I could not ask for a better boyfriend. Seriously. Even Jon Stewart would have crumbled by now.
The past six weeks have been slung at me like tetherballs -- yep, see, here comes another one again, ready to bonk me in the head -- but you've been there every day, when I come home, to assure me that it's okay. Even when I've been boring, or whiny, or unthinkably annoying.
I love you. I will never stop. And I hope I am for you what you are for me: a full-spectrum light source, illuminating the sad, scared nights and sparklifying the long, stressful days. With every color and shape of love imaginable.
