Two years ago today, my best friend turned into something more.  Since the summer of 2006 we have been even more inseparable than we had been before (if that’s possible) and I’ve found a new meaning to life and love.

I have no doubt that I would not have lasted as long as I did without Kati by my side – her relentless enthusiasm, her childlike playfulness and her positive spin on the most difficult things carried me forward in a way I wouldn’t have managed alone.

People say that love is the most important thing in life and that finding someone to love is the best.  Personally, I believe that friendship is more important – finding someone you trust completely and want to share experiences with, someone you can talk to, laugh with and be yourself all the time with.  I’m just lucky to have found all of that in one person.

To all those still looking, never give up hope and to all those who’ve found their “one” – don’t ever forget how lucky you are and don’t ever take them for granted.

I love you Kati, thank you.
