The Nice List

A tribute to warm Yooper culture

To my boyfriend,

You’re the perfect kind of goofball, and you care so much about me. You always want what’s best for me, and you push me to be the best version of myself that I can be.

While I can’t make any promises that I’m going to go skiing this year, or that I’m going to someday travel to Germany to study abroad, I can assure you that I will try my best to pepper our every day lives with the kind of love and true intention that you give to me already.

I am so grateful that I met you on that fateful day way back in high school, but I’m even more grateful that a person like you decided to become friends with me.

Thank you for always supporting me in my wild and crazy endeavors. Thank you for loving on our rambunctious puppy.

Thank you for choosing to be mine every morning.
