If this isn't love, we don't know what is.

On Monday, Girls star and creator Lena Dunham shared an email she wrote to her boyfriend of one year, Jack Antonoff, as part of artist Miranda July's "We Think Alone" project.

The email is addressed to "Dearest Baby" and was written in October 2012, while the writer/director/producer/actress, 27, was on a trip to India.

In it, Dunham tells her boyfriend, who plays guitar in the band Fun, about walking through "a beautiful Indian garden" and spying a young couple sitting on a bench talking animatedly.

"We spent 40 minutes walking around the garden and when we circled back they were still there, chatting like fiends," she writes.

"And I thought of you, like always, and I felt I could spend four days on a bench with you and it wouldn't be enough time to hear all the stories you have to tell," she continues. "I literally want to know everything you have ever seen and what you felt like while you were seeing it. And I will be so much better my whole life for knowing those things."
