my first boyfriend. yes, i AM 24.

for 24 years i waited to meet him. you could say i’m picky.

as irony would have it, he was right under my nose. FOR A DECADE.

for almost a year now, i have been dating this amazing guy. he is irresistable in so many ways and on so many levels. the boy defies all definitions of “best boyfriend ever.” he’s his own category.

you could say he’s perfect. but perhaps he is simply perfect for me.

i love him.




i mention all of this simply because these past few months have been and will continue to be an incredible period of “firsts” – first boyfriend (and, proudly, first kiss), first time to get in & attend law school, first experience living in washington, d.c. AND san francisco, first bianchi bike (did i tell you how great the boyfriend is?), first time to denmark AND germany, first time having my VERY OWN apartment (to decorate on my own, clean when i feel like it, walk around in my underwear any time of day and to scream-sing the words out loud to my favorite songs) …

i can feel a million new “firsts” coming in the next few weeks as law school starts (first time spending an entire day and night in a law library?? first time being verbally humiliated in class by a law professor??) and as i get settled in my adorable studio in pacific heights.

with this beautiful – and somewhat scary – year of firsts, i can’t imagine a better time to thank sweet robert austin for supporting me through ALL of it. through the painful LSAT studying, through the four months we spent on separate shores of the country, through sifting through craigslist posts for the “perfect” apartment … through the happy, silly & the sad.

you are my hero. i can’t wait to experience a gazillion more “firsts” with you.
