Short post today, because I'm tired and there isn't a whole lot I can add to this that hasn't already been said. 15 years ago today Melissa and I 'officially' started dating. It's an incredibly bittersweet day, I am so happy for these past 15 years but I am so sad that she isn't here with me telling stories and enjoying our favorite mexican food.
My calendar is going to be full of little time bombs like this. As I've said before, the first ones are always the hardest. I will get through, but I think I might go to bed early tonight first.
