Lea Michele returned to Twitter Monday for the first time since her boyfriend Cory Monteith's tragic death on July 13.

The Glee starlet thanked her fans today and shared a smiling photo of her and Cory cuddled up together.

"Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support," Lea wrote. "Cory will forever be in my heart."

Cory, 31, died of an overdose from heroin and alcohol in a hotel room in Canada. The actor had been open about his struggle with addiction in the past and went to rehab earlier this year.

Lea first met Cory on the set of their hit Fox series and the costars quickly turned into a couple, going public with their romance in August 2012. They had reportedly planned to move in together to Lea's LA home and had been telling friends they both found "the one." Cory was even supposedly planning a sweet surprise for Lea's 27th birthday next month.

We're glad Lea is staying strong, and Cory will be in our hearts here, too.
