8 years ago we could not have imagined where we would be today. celebrating my graduation with a master’s in social work. i could never have made it this far without your unwavering support, love, confidence, and kindness. you believed in me when i did not believe in myself. you loved me when i was bitchy and mean. you have supported me since day one of our 8 years together. i could not have planned a better anniversary celebration. you cheered me on as i walked across the stage to be hooded today just like you cheered me on all those late, late nights when i was trying to finish papers upon papers. simply put, i would not have accomplished what i have without you.
i love you today and always.
