Okay guys so my boyfriend is like, the sweetest, ever. Two weeks ago he left for a senior trip with his school all the way up the coast to New York and back. This trip lasted 10 days and he knew I’d miss him, and you know what he did? He told me he wanted to bring one of my stuffed animals with him, so it’d be like a little piece of me was on the trip with him. (This stuffed animal is one I’ve had since I was four, he’s missing an eye and his name is Brownie.) Anyway, every day, Boyfriend sent me a picture of brownie to show where he was in the world and all the things they were getting to see. And when he got home, he re-gifted brownie back to me and I’m probably going to frame all the pictures they took. Long story short, this is really friggin sweet and thoughtful and made me miss him a little less???? Y'all. Actual otp okay.
