"These are my awards, Mother. From Army. The seal is for marksmanship, and the gorilla is for sand racing. Now if you'll excuse me, they're putting me in something called Hero Squad." - Buster Bluth, Arrested Development

There is a moment when you meet someone and you know you are destined to be in each others lives. When I meant Dan, who I lovingly call "Danny Pants", it was one of those moments. We bonded over a shared love of music (including Sufjan Stevens and Radiohead) to Arrested Development. His smile is one of the best ever, and his jokes and laughter instantly cheer me up no matter what is going on in life. I'm so thankful for the friendship that has grown over the past year!

Dan is headed off to fulfill his dream after being accepted into the pilot program for the Navy. Before he flies out to start training I decided to take my camera out on one of our coffee dates on Capitol Hill. He makes me heart sing, and I love him with the passion of a thousand burning suns. Be safe Danny Pants, and expect lots of fan mail from us here in Seattle!
