To My New Boyfriend

To My New Boyfriend

Thank you.

John Smith

Dear boyfriend,

I know it doesn't seem like we've been dating long enough for me to say this, but I am so happy that I found you.

Before you, I had given up on finding a boyfriend. I was so over dating. Then you came along and changed everything.

I had lost my faith in guys and relationships. I was convinced that I would never find a guy who wanted more than a physical relationship. I had begun to think I would never be more than a "booty call."

Over the past months, you have made me realize my worth, and that I am indeed worthy of a real relationship and I thank you for that.

You always seem to know how to put a smile on my face and I love that. I love being able to make you smile too, especially since you don't like your smile, (even though it's totally adorable.)

Thank you for all the adventures and memories.

Thank you for putting up with me, when I feel like I'm acting crazy. There are times I feel like I'm being overly emotional and wonder why you choose to stay and deal with me and my mood swings. Not only do you stay, but you reassure me that I'm not being as bad as I think I am and that means more than you could ever know.

Thank you for letting me call you super late on my way home from work so I don't fall asleep driving, even though you are exhausted yourself.

Thank you for always letting me vent to you no matter the time of day.

Thank you for driving an hour to see me when I'm upset, even though we'll only get to spend like four hours together.

Thank you for always being optimistic about the future when I start to have my doubts and for reminding me to enjoy the here and now and to worry about the future when we get there.

There are so many other things I could thank you for, but I won't get into all that.

Most importantly thank you for being you.

I adore you and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

I was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
