Dear Tyler,




You have been by my side since I was 16 years old. We've been through more than anyone can even begin to imagine, and I'm so grateful that I was the one to help you through all your hardships, and that you were there to help me through mine. I love you so much.

When I was in high school I have to admit that I never wanted to be with someone so young. I didn't think I would be in a relationship of almost 5 years at the age of 21, and I still am shocked that someone could put up with me everyday, and love me for all of my flaws. You've seen me at my worst (Literally) and I've had days where my heart has been in a bad place, and you always forgive me. and you've been nothing but kind towards my dreams and not a day goes by when you don't make me feel beautiful.

Even when i don't show it as much as I should, I appreciate everything you do for me.

I really do.

Out of everything we do together, It's the little things that I think I like the most. Even something as small as holding my hand. I care about you more than a boyfriend- You are my best friend, and I couldn't imagine laughing beside anyone else.

I know even the short distance between us can be hard, but there is just one thing I always want you to remember: You are so important to me. no matter what happens in our lives, you will always be in my heart.

Lastly, The thing I want to thank you for:

supporting me.

In every way.

I started my business at the age of 19 and you have done nothing, but push me to keep going when I'm feeling down. Between school and work all day, I forget to text you way too often and you still text me "goodnight, I love you" every night.  I Moved an hour away and you just worried sick, but always pushed me to follow my dreams in Richmond.

So after all of this, I just want to say thank you for being my support system and my best friend, no matter what.
