It's been 3 years of hugs, kisses, and I love you's. It's been 36 months of iced coffee dates and picnics at the park. It's been 156 weeks of silly selfies and lazy snuggles. It's been 1,096 days of pinky promises, exciting adventures, and meaningful milestones. Thank you for everything you do and everything you are, my darling. I know how much you love my articles when they contain numbered lists so this one's for you, Hieu <3

6. Thank you for making me laugh.

Your laugh alone makes me laugh because it's so contagious. I love laughing with you. Also, you're next to me right now laughing at an episode of The Office and I'm smiling and you don't even know why. <3

This was our first "omg we're dating now so let's take a selfie" picture. One of my favorites. Also, thank you, thank you, thank you. <3

P.S. Here's a selfie from this weekend.
