One year ago,
I saw that this very handsome and mysterious man started following my blog. I then decided to read every single on of his posts and eventually found him on Instagram. For some reason I was determined to meet this man. We started making small conversation on tumblr and also on IG and one night I was at a friends show at the Beat Kitchen and I didn’t really know anyone there. Ryan happened to comment on the photo I had taken at the venue and I asked him if he wanted to come hang out with me. He did. I talked his ear off, a little because I was nervous and a little because I talk too much haha He stood there listening. Probably thinking what in the world he had gotten himself into.
At the end of the night we exchanged numbers and went our separate ways. For some reason I decided it was okay to immediately start texting him haha There was just something about this man!
We met up again two days later. It was another hot and beautiful summer day in Chicago. We went for a walk and I talked his ear off and he patiently listened. I didn’t really know what I was doing. He was so different from the previous men I had dated but I just wanted to be around him. We eventually went back to his apartment and he immediately sat down and started playing his guitar. For some reason, that was it for me. It was like a huge light bulb went off in my head and my heart was just aching for him. I felt like he knew everything about me, and I fell in love with him right then and there.
That was one year ago.
I’m so lucky to call Ryan not only my lover, but also my best friend. Happy Anniversary my love. I can’t wait for out future together and thank you for being so wonderful.
I love you always,
