Stacey (my wife) and I have been together for years. We started dating during the Summer between our Freshman and Sophomore years. We went to different schools, ones that were about 4 hours apart. I couldn’t afford to talk on the phone, so we wrote letters to each other almost every day. So grateful we did. It’s like having a journal of our early years together. Used to put little cartoon drawings on the envelopes and in the margins of my letters to her. Sometimes, I sent drawings. This self portrait is one I sent to her.
