Anna, you're making me cry. I miss you too, always. You are my sunshine.@harborinthestorm
Awww babycakes. I love you to the James River foot bridge to High Cock Knob to Spy Rock to the moon and back. I’m so thankful we got to spend New Years together. Thanks for being a consistent source of love and light in my life.
Likewise, my love. Our adventures together are some of the happiest memories I have. I love you huge, obscene, ridiculous amounts. Let’s be together forever.
I was explaining to someone about what happened between us in that bush to the side of train tracks the first day of rafting on pallets down the James. It made me remember all of the other ridiculous things that we’ve been through together and how important you are to me (though of course I never really forgot that). Let’s try and meet up this summer. I need some sunshine and your face back in my life.
Yes. All of this, yes. I was just thinking about the moment we knew for sure we were friends, when you told me that dirty joke under your breath and I spat bagel all over you and laughed until I cried. All of our moments, hilarious and not. We have been with each other through so much, and I miss you like crazy. Yes, this summer. We will see each other, we will make it happen, and it will be so so beautiful.
That was such a beautiful moment. We’ve also spent such good quality time sitting under trees crying and throwing chunks of earth because life is hard and has absolutely not given us the easiest time these past few years. I don’t know how I would have gotten through (and continue to get through) all of it without your loving, caring presence by my side. I’m also not exactly sure where Anner Benaner came from but I never want it to stop. I’m glad you were one of the many ridiculous New Years kisses, it’s made this year all the sweeter.
Fuck, I need to return to you and summer and mountains and grass and sweat and dirt and stars and love love love. Life has been rough, life is rough, but I am so lucky to have you and your bright, beautiful, ever-loving self in my life. I am feeling super corny and nostalgic. Seeing you at New Years was the best surprise in the world, the best way this year could have started. Let’s run away to the woods and sit on top of each other on logs and eat trail food with too much cheese.
