ZOMG. Yesterday was the 6 month anniversary that Bats and I were officially partnered! I can remember all the experiences we shared together, from the freakish neighbors in Cherry Tree Rentals, our first land in Flounder, all the great areas we explored, our first Christmas together, and even finding our dream house in a wonderful Dreamland paradise.

Our first date was on June 23rd, he moved 2 doors away from my apartment a few days later, and we were partnered on July 5th. He "proposed" at our favorite location at the time, the Finnish Sauna in Kaunis. Even today - that place holds special meaning to me. While we didn't have a wedding, I had fun launching fireworks off the roof of our apartment building to celebrate having his name in the "Partner" box of my profile.

My goal when I came to SecondLife was to explore Buddhism and Shintoism as a philosophy and a religion, but when I met Bats, that all changed. He has become the center of my SecondLife. Without him around, my SL would fall to pieces.

So, Bats - Thank you for staying with me for 6 months, even if you feel like you can only edit your own pants. :P Thank you for not killing me when I accidentally retexture our hardwood floors with gold ribbon. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me, and giving me the will to create bigger and better things. Thank you for being Imperial Elegance's number one model. And most importantly, thank you for giving me a reason to stay in SecondLife.

I look forward to our next 6 months together, and before we realize it, we will be celebrating our 1 year on July 5th, 2008. ^^
