Trigger warning: This is one of my most personal posts ever.
This is one of Adele’s many heart-breakingly beautiful songs. I can’t listen to this without feeling its emotional pull, never mind that I never was in the song’s exact circumstance.
But I almost was. Though my guy and I have been together now for more than a decade now, there was a time before when I honestly thought everything was over between us. Had we not gotten back together, I would have been literally singing this song with matching tears and snot. It would have hurt that bad. Why? Allow me to tell you one of the most painful parts of our story…
Anyone in a long-distance relationship could probably relate to this photo. 😉 Valentines Day and you’re hundreds or thousands of miles away from each other, your tenuous link at the mercy of technology.

That was the date you went abroad. That makes it exactly 10 years now that you have been away. How time flies, right?
