Lindsay Mills and Edward Snowden even spend holidays together, here's a Christmas post that Lindsay captioned:
c. #selfportrait Holidays are about traditions, laughter, and memories. This year we adopted the Japanese tradition of KFC Christmas chicken. And it brought out our silly side. The little connections that bring us all together are what make this time of year so magical. Whether you are celebrating old traditions or making new memories, we hope you all have a wonderful end to a wild year!

Mills is also an active blogger, on n 30 July 2012, she had written:
For those that have forgotten, I moved to Hawaii to continue my relationship with E. It has been quite an up-and-down emotional rollercoaster since the moment I stepped off the plane. I looked over at E and smiled.This was the most adult, boring moment I've had ever. I felt grown-up, suburban, and oddly content.
Mills, however, remained silent and never spoke on the very subject of her boyfriend or his actions after the whistleblowing event in 2013. Mills was last spotted attending the 2015 Oscars and also appeared onstage for the promotion of the documentary 'Citizenfour'.
