The Love Letter I Never Sent

Letting go of someone doesn't mean you stop loving them.

The Love Letter I Never Sent

To my love,

I should have expressed this while you were still mine. Maybe things would have worked out differently. Even though this may come too late, I still believe you deserve to hear this.

You mean more to me than you will ever know and understand. You are the only person I have ever been able to completely open myself up to and I am forever grateful for your kindness, love, and support.

Even during your dark times, you were a better man than most are at their best. You are the kind of man any person would be lucky to know and any woman would be lucky to love. I know that is not something you see about yourself, but the great ones never do.

I hope you know how happy you made me and although we are hurting right now, I know in the end we will both be better for it. All I want is for you to be happy and to feel the warmth that your smile brings the world.

If I were to give you one thing in this life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes. That way you could see how truly special you are to me and to this world.

I know you may feel as though mistakes you've made will make you ultimately unlovable, but that is far from the truth. Your past mistakes led you to me and your future mistakes will make you into the amazing man, husband, and father you were created to be.

The part of my life where I had you will forever be my favorite chapter. I was willing to love you even though I knew there was a possibility that things might not work out. The thought of possibly being with you forever was worth the thought of having my heart broken by you. What I had with you is something I have never envisioned with anyone else.

I loved you more than anything or anyone else. I stood by you when you cried and in your darkest times. I stood by your side until you decided it was no longer best for me. And even after that, I still loved you.

I still love you.

I am constantly thinking about you no matter what I am doing. And I think that is how I know that I still love you. I have yet to be able to experience any part of this life without wishing you were there to experience it with me. I wasn't kidding when I said this was my worst fear. Losing you is and always will be my worst fear.

Finally, I want you to know how sorry I am for pushing you away when all I wanted was for you to be closer. You were home to me, and I hope being with me felt like home too.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.
