Our Readers: Daniel Koplitz & Joseph Krohlow

by | May 1, 2021 | 0 comments

Together since: December 6, 2017 

Daniel: Breakfast is the time of day we can always count on seeing one another, and with that consistency, it can be easy to take for granted. Most days, Joey gets up about 20 minutes before me to start cooking, and by the time I’ve gotten out of bed, made it up, and got dressed, he’s plated a delicious meal that we enjoy together at my great-grandparents’ dining table. (If I’m up earlier, I’m notorious for giving him little shoulder nibbles and tight hugs from behind, playfully distracting him from his cooking.) This is our dedicated time to connect with one another before going our separate ways for work each day. It’s not always connection through words—sometimes it’s just our eyes, our body language, our energy saying, “I love you, and I’m so glad I got to wake up to you another day.” 

Joseph: I’m never bored with Danny. They’re constantly curating, disciplining, and sifting through themself (as well as the apartment’s décor). It’s a gift to be in love with someone who embodies passion, someone who takes hours to comb through every single item at the thrift store, someone who always takes the extra step past satisfactory towards extraordinary. Danny is someone who cares—and cares deeply. I marvel at the human I’ve fallen in love with every time they stop and greet the birds, or try to coax the houseplants out of their depression. It’s a blessing to start and end each day with this pair of puppy dog eyes that I have come to call “babe.” I can’t wait to discover more of you in our days to come.
