so maybe it's just my normal state of being that i feel all mushy and lovey, or maybe it's because it's valentine's month, but i came across this little note when i was going through some old emails and i just about melted.
back story -- alan had to go to china for ten days back in september for work. since we started dating in july of 2003, we had never spent more than 48 hours apart. ever. and i think that 48 hours happened like once. so it was rough knowing that we weren't going to get to see each other for over a week. and we didn't know if we were even going to be able to talk to each other. he wrote me this note during his flight:
I just want to apologize to you for it taking me going to China to
truly appreciate you. I have never missed anyone more than I do
you right now. 5 hours into this plane ride and my heart hurts so bad.
I've started coming up with ways to turn the plane around....
all of which end with me in jail. I can't wait to come home to you.
i know. kinda makes you want to throw up, right? but if you can get past the nausea, you'll see why i happen to think i am the luckiest girl in the whole world.
