A portrait once a week, every week, in 2013

—Richard.

I was sick this week and despite my black eyes, pale skin and and greasy hair Richard made me feel beautiful. He sat beside me on the sofa and watched countless episodes of Grey’s Anatomy while I coughed and spluttered and blew my nose. Being sick is ugly and nasty and exhausting but being with Richard is the exact opposite. He makes me feel golden. The last (almost) four years have been quite an adventure and I know for sure that our fifth summer of love is going to be an expedition unlike any we have embarked upon before. I love the very bones of this boy and I will never stop. Thank you R for sticking to my side, I can’t imagine living this ridiculous life without you. xoxo
