Together can never be close enough for me ...

... to feel like I am close enough to you.

2005 — Freshman year track practice
2006 — High school junior formal
2007 — High school senior formal
2008 — High school senior prom
2009 — His sister's wedding
2010 — New Year's vacation in Kauai
2011 — My college graduation
2012 — A friend's wedding

Happy anniversary to my high school sweetheart! When you asked me to be your girlfriend eight years ago, I had no idea you would speak at Baccalaureate with me, attend my sorority formals and college graduation, or put your creeping skills to use to send me flowers at the university I'm currently visiting halfway across the country. :) I never dreamed I would watch you catch a pass in a college football game, spend New Year's Eve in Hawaii with you or celebrate an eight-year anniversary. I can't wait for our long-distance days to end! I love you!

Note: Post title from this song. But no, this is not a proposal!
