if you don’t know me, i’m a very private person. and i don’t like to share but, here it is. it’s definitely difficult to say any of this, let alone write it down. i’ve read this everyday for months now. this is for my boyfriend:
caleb. this is for all the times you think i don’t like you. i’m apologizing now and forever because i know i don’t show it well. let me begin with, i’m sorry my walls are well over ten feet tall. but there is no one else that can manage to climb them, as well as you have and continue to. understand you do this both figuratively and literally, with grace. and that’s what sets you apart from any other guy i’ve dated. and maybe it’s why it sets me apart from any other girl you’ve dated. because we exercise our minds, over our tongues. because anything I throw at you, or rather anything that gets thrown at US, we work out together. because you showed me the value of a team, team cj.
