And now's the time I get REAL sappy on you...

^^^Valentine's Day, 2013 in Malaysia @ the classy Hard Rock Cafe^^^

Dear Sweet Honey Boo Boo (just kidding, we both know I don't call you that),

It's 10:52pm, the night before Valentine's Day, and you're fast asleep next to me. I thought now would be a good time to write you my annual love note for this day of love we've got coming around. I'm not even sure where to begin, but I keep looking at this picture and it's making me smile a lot slash want to cry tears of emotional happiness. Maybe it's just because it's Crazy Connie PMS week, or I'm being super nostalgic, but for some reason, I'm feeling really emotional right now. But you know me, when am I not emotional?

I just want you to know how much I love you and how I wish there were better words to explain it other than those simple three we throw out throughout the day - 'I love you' just doesn't seem to cut it anymore, you know? We should make up a new word that means the most, most, MOST love we can have for someone. Like... "I MAGOO you." And then when I say it, you'll just know. Like, wow...she really DOES love me.

So yeah, I magoo you, Boo. I magoo the shit out of you.

Almost every day I meet someone (while driving) who asks me how I came to live in San Francisco. I usually have this spiel down pat, it's been asked so many times: Well, my boyfriend and I were living in San Diego and we decided to sell everything we owned to go travel for 6 months. So then after the 6 months, we decided to live in San Francisco and try it out! I can guarantee I've said it over one hundred times, so to me, it's lost a little of the surprise factor, but to the person hearing it, they always say something along the lines of, "Wait, what? Where did you go? That's incredible!"

And you know what? Yeah. It is incredible. I remember so many times in my life, before I even knew you, I wanted to travel the world. To leave the "norm" and find that something more. I longed for it, I wished for it, I dreamed about it. But I never knew what to do to make it happen.

Then you came into my life.

And somehow, just like that, we made it happen. We figured it out. You made my dreams come true, Boo, and I can't thank you enough for that. I don't know what I did in life, I don't know how this Universe works, but something happened to bring us together and create all of these amazing things and sometimes it really just blows my effing mind. (Yes, I said 'effing' in a love note.)

I remember this one night, several years ago. I had just broken up with yet another boyfriend and I was with my mom at a Panda Express, crying that I'd never find the perfect guy for me. So she got out a piece of paper and a pen and told me to come up with all of the qualities I wanted in someone. She said to not hold back and to be as specific as I wanted. It seemed a little silly at the time, but I went along with it anyway. For some reason, I kept that paper all of these years, thrown in with old diaries and such. But I remember coming across it several months ago and sitting down with the memory. And would you believe you fit every. single thing I had written down that one night in a Panda Express? Every one! And trust me, I got specific. Again, I don't know how this Universe works or if there's a God. I don't know if "The Power of the Mind" truly works, but I will say this: I thank my lucky stars you were born and better yet, that I get to be a part of your life. You are one of a kind, Verner Dixon The Third, and you make me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

I magoo you, Boo. I magoo you a lot.

Happy Valentine's Day, my love!

Love,
Me

xoxo
