A long time ago (about a year now), I wrote an article about my humongous crush on Niykee Heaton. Miraculously, she read the article and reached out to me and we started chatting and hit it off. I’d love to say that we’re dating now but, alas, I’m still working on it.

The reason I bring this up, is because my good friend Rob saw what happened and immediately sent me a frantic text; “If you ever write about Hilary Duff, you need to mention my undying love for her!! She needs to see it!!!”

So, here we are. Hilary, I’d love for you to meet my friend Rob. He’s a great guy and he’s had a crush on you for an absurd amount of time. You’re single and looking fantastic, so I don’t see why not. I think I see some sparks flying already!

Oh, those might just be some fourth of July fireworks…

Happy fourth 🇺🇸
