an open love letter

Happy birthday, Emily (strangexgirl)!!!!!!!!

I've met a lot of people on the internet. Despite the horror stories you hear in the media, I don't believe I've ever met anyone here who was a really bad person. On the contrary, I've met so many people of different cultures, races, religions, from all around the world, and they've all been people -- good people, and more like each other than not.

But Emily is special, and she's the one who captured my heart. In October I went down to visit her, and this coming Saturday I'm getting the best Christmas present of all: I'm traveling down to Missouri again, but this time I'm bringing her back with me for the winter. I'm getting strangexgirl for Christmas! Giftwrapping not required. :-) Emily, we've known each other for a year and a half. Despite our age difference and living two states away, I'm constantly amazed at how much we're alike, how many interests we share, and how a somewhat cynical middle aged guy like me can find love again, and be loved in return. Here's to having many more holidays together.

Love to Emily for her birthday from me!

Thanks! I'll pass it on, but I'd imagine she'll be here herself when time permits.

Awwww! Love is so wonderful. *sniffle*

I wish you and Emily all the best! <3

Thanks! Isn't it, though? Maybe now would be a good time for me to start working on a romance novel! :-)

Romance is in the air, hiding among all those snowflakes. This is the best Christmas experience I've heard about yet. I hope this is just the first Christmas of many for both of you!!!

Thank you for the Christmas card. It was lovely.

Thank you for being such a good friend! I hope there are many more Christmas' to come, too. Who knows -- at this rate I might come to like winter! But probably not. :-)

Happy birthday to Emily and congrats to you for finding a soul mate.

Your story just confirms what I've thought all along- that one
find someone to love on the internet. What a wonderful story. I hope you both have a wonderful winter together.

Well, I'm not sure there's such a thing as a wonderful winter, but it's looking a lot better than most of my winters! :-) I absolutely agree you can find someone to love on the internet; and on a related note, I love your icon.
Dec. 26th, 2007 02:29 pm (UTC)
and on a related note, I love your icon.

I defer credit as I have no earthly idea how to go about making
an icon, nor the originality. :-)

This one is from frail_delusions I think it says everything.

I've learned how to make a basic icon; but I'm not much on the originality of it, either!
