A woman was shocked when she found a love letter she wrote as a teenager to her high school boyfriend while shopping in Goodwill.
Sharing her story on TikTok, content creator Kaylee Powell revealed that she immediately recognized the collage she made of her ex-boyfriend 10 years ago. Although her high school sweetheart painted the love note on the back, she wanted to see if she could get it back.
“We were at our local Goodwill and were walking past the shelf when we came across this, which is a piece I made 10 years ago for my high school boyfriend. You can see he painted on my love letter, but that’s where my signature was. I want to buy it, I want to see if I can fix it and if I can reveal the love letter I wrote,” said she explained in the viral TikTok.
Kaylee bought the item, took it home, and scratched off the paint. Sure enough, her teenage love letter was revealed.
I honestly can’t believe it’s only been a few weeks. The memories we made, the mornings we shared, and the love I gained are priceless. I really don’t know what you see in me, I don’t know why you care, but I’m so glad you found something that you find valuable in me, and I’m so happy and grateful to be able to call you mine. I hope we will have another thousand birthdays after that. I hope this is the end of my old life and the beginning of my new one.
I love you more than words could ever say and hope that never changes – you are my beacon of salvation, the stars in my night sky and my best friend.
i love you kaylee
PS Sorry, I had to share my feelings.
Kaylee added that she found the letter “very cringeworthy” but also “very funny”, which is why she decided to share it.
