thanks..and sea-ya!

dear sweet boyfriend of mine,
i'm leaving you for another country. i'm sorry. it's not you, it's me.
i need to be somewhere where the sun shines all year round. where there are beaches and palm trees and plenty of frozen yogurt topping options.
i need to have an adventure.

and thank you. for being so lovely, and for making me this seafood risotto and eating it on the couch with me because my kitchen table (and every other flat surface in my apartment) is covered with crap that needs packing.
thank you for painstakingly adding ladle-full after ladle-full of shrimp broth, butter, and white wine to the italian short grain rice in order to get it that creamy but al dente consistency. thank you for scrubbing the mussels so that we wouldn't get sick, and thanks for cooking them up with onions and garlic and more butter and sea salt. thanks for cooking the shrimp to perfection and then plating the whole thing so elegantly.
thank you.
you are the best.
