Place: Heathrow Airport
Jenn: This would mean that you are physically here with me, holding me safe in your arms. Months will have passed, since we were last able to touch each others skin and the thought of it happening again, keeps my heart full. Although there are now 5,437 miles between us, we continue to write our story; which started when we first kissed in Down Town Los Angeles on 14th August 2014.

Place: Forbidden Planet
Jenn: Because I like you and you like Graphic Novels and Anime and ComiCon and that whole world that I know nothing about. I took you here when you visited me, and your eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store. I have always said that you are “a big dog that thinks he is a lap dog” and this was a prime example. You are a big dork at heart, and it makes me happy seeing you in your big dorky world.

Place: Cross Fit North London
Jenn: Because Crossfit is the reason we were able to find each other in the world. I was traveling to LA for work (from London) and you had moved there from Michigan only a year before. It took almost 6 weeks of me training at your gym for you to ask me out, and we shared our first kiss in DTLA only days later. Crossfit is a large part of our lives, and we are lucky enough to be able to “Crossfit” pretty much anywhere we go. Where you live, your home town, where I live, my hometown and anywhere we wish to travel together. I blush when I think of all the Crossfit boxes we could potentially sharing kisses at, all over the world.

Place: Millennium Bridge
Jenn: This was on my list of things to do when you were last here, but we ran out of time. I know you are not the best with heights, so that ruled out climbing to the top of St Paul's Cathedral ;) London is such a romantic city and I love that fact that you can stand over the Thames, looking at such a beautiful old cathedral, surrounded by modern structures. It is the perfect blend of what is old and new, which is one of the many reasons why I am in LOVE with this city.

Place: Great Eastern Street
Jenn: “lets adore and endure each other” - to love and respect, to suffer patiently. This particular piece of street art, has really always been a favorite of mine. There is no need to make our story or message to each other complicated. The things we can’t control right now, make it tough enough already.
Location: (51.617871, -0.185400)
Place: Woodside Park Station
Jenn: Because we are both tired of seeing other couples kissing, holding hands, snuggling and falling asleep on each other, on public transport. Every time we go out with friends, in our different countries - we always text each other to say how jealous we are of those couples coming home late at night, together. We sit there, listening music through headphones on our own, longing for a day in the future where that could be OUR normal.
