These gifs are of my boyfriend Mitch and I meeting at the airport for the second time. It was probably the happiest moment of my life because I knew we’d never be separated again. 

Mitch and I started talking late September of 2011. He found my blog on Tumblr because of a Michael Jackson giveaway I was doing and noticed I was obsessed with MJ and Christina Aguilera and he sent me an ask about a remix of two of their songs and that got us talking. I added him on Facebook and we communicated there via messages and here on tumblr via asks for a while. 

We finally exchanged phone numbers and Skype addresses and started talking non-stop. On November 29th, he ‘officially’ asked me out and we started dating long distance. We decided he was coming to visit me in January and I couldn’t be happier. 

His first visit was amazing! He stayed with me at my house for a week and we did everything together! The highlight of that week was going to the Albuquerque Comic Con together, and our first kiss (which has a funny story behind it haha). We said ‘I love you’ to each other for the first time the night before he left and him leaving at the airport was the most heart-wrenching thing ever. 

But never fear! In March, he came back and he was never leaving me again! He stayed for a few days and celebrated my birthday with me - and my birthday party was also a going away party. Three days after my birthday, we embarked on a three day journey across America from New Mexico to Illinois in a moving truck. 

Now I’m living in Illinois with the love of my life and I couldn’t be happier! 

The purpose of this page is to share our story and let you all know that it is possible! Long distance relationships suck sometimes, but they are worth it! I promise. I found my soulmate and I wasn’t going to let the distance keep me from him. 

Here is his tumblr:
