dear hallie, today is finally the day. the big one year anniversary and although we’ve only known each other for a year it feels like i’ve known you for a lifetime. we weren’t really close in the beginning but as the months went on we got closer and closer every second. for the longest time you’ve been so many things to me. my girlfriend, my sgf, my lesbian lover, but most importantly you’ve been things to me like a shoulder to cry on at 3am, a silly little phone call where we talk about how your house is haunted, a home, a safe place to land, my rock, my soul, literally anything you name it. you’re everything to me. you complete me. we’re rachel and monica. without you i wouldn’t be me and i most definitely wouldn’t be complete. you’re the blair to my serena, my person. that’s right, MY person. there’s not a human on this earth that could ever replace you in my heart. you mean the world to me and there’s not enough words in the dictionary that will ever be enough to express how much i love you and how much you mean to me. the past year we’ve both had quite a few ups and downs (not with each other but personally) and i honestly don’t think there’s a person i would rather have been able to solely rely on. you always know what to say. you understand me and you never fail to put a smile on my face even when i feel like the world is crashing down. even hearing your little giggle on the other end of the phone makes my heart melt and that’s when i know that i’m safe and at home. you are home to me.
