I was able to spend my 4th of July with this amazing girl. Over the past 9 months, she has brought so much light into my life and has easily become the best thing that has ever happened to me. From late night talks in my car to driving down random back roads, every second I spend with her instantly becomes my new favorite memory. From the moment I saw her, I knew she would mean the world to me. The funny thing is, she quickly became my world. She’s the smartest and most beautiful human being I have ever had the privilege of meeting. In a short time, she’ll be gone, leaving 995 miles (15 hours) of loneliness in between us to become everything she’s ever wanted to be. Our future together is unknown, sometimes knowing that keeps me up at night because thinking of her one day not being mine makes even the best days seem so insignificant. All I know is that when she leaves, she’ll be taking my heart with her. Because out of every star in the sky and even on the sunniest of days, she’ll always be the brightest light in my life. I love you more than anything in this entire world. I never knew falling in love would be this easy, until I met you.
