Nathan and I spent our first Valentine’s Day in a blanket fort binge watching Scrubs, drawing together, and eating take out.
Little did I know that before we took it down, Nathan took a panorama of the entire fort.
Today, before we left to drop him off at the bus station to go back home after visiting me for a week, he surprised me with this drawing he did.
I wish you all were there so you’d know how accurate this entire scene was.
I spent the rest of the morning looking at the photo, crying, and feeling overwhelmed with a melancholy bittersweetness because I had to say goodbye to the one person who makes me feel the happiest, but also a sense of extreme gratitude and love because despite the terrible year I’ve been having, I am so lucky to be able to have someone like him beside me.
