The eternal ray of sunshine that is Bindi Irwin is at it again – the other day, the young star took to social media to post a sweet love note to her boyfriend and it's made our hearts melt. The 18-year-old recently had to say goodbye to Chandler Powell when he returned to Florida after visiting her in her native Australia.
The professional wakeboarder, who is currently a college student in the US state, received the following note from the loved-up lady and it's the most adorable thing ever. It reads:
"You are flying back to the USA today. Dropping you off at the airport & waving goodbye, it never gets easier. Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months. We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range!"
She then wrote:
“I’ve known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you’ve been my sunshine. I will see you again soon! Thank you for everything, you always make me smile, no matter how far apart we may be. Have fun while you’re away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me.”

Although Bindi and her beau have been doing long-distance for quite some time now after first meeting in November 2013 when he was on a visit to the Australia Zoo, it seems that their love continues to burn brighter than ever. Having said that though, the late Croc Hunter's daughter isn't quite ready to settle down and marriage is definitely not on the cards quite yet. Speaking last July, she admitted:
"I don’t think I’m at a point in my life where marriage and getting engaged is really a huge priority right now for me. Maybe in five years, but right now I’m really happy with where I’m at. I'm really happy with our relationship and I think we'll just continue to have fun. It's just nice to have someone there no matter what."
Do you think that long-distance relationships can work?
