Just an update (:
Well, tomorrow is 9 months with my baby. <3 we are currently happier than ever. Lately I’ve just been realizing so much that my happiness really is with him. As long as I have him and am with him, whether it be physically in the same place or not, I am a happy girl. I really do not want to imagine a life without him. I’ve just been really thankful for him lately. I realize more and more each day what an incredible person I have in my life.
Friday, I received the care package that he kept talking to me about…. It was INCREDIBLE. I’ve never really had someone put thought into me like that. He literally places so much attention to all the little details about me. He sent me his Pillow Pet that was covered with his heavenly aroma which almost made me cry. He sent me his soccer jersey with his last name on it. He sent me TWO more pairs of these anchor earrings… He had sent me a pair in the last box and I accidentally stepped on one of them and I cried because they meant so much to me. So in this box, he sent me two pairs and said he knew how much they meant to me, so he sent me two pairs just in case. He sent me bracelets, earrings, and owl earring holder thing because I love owls, a beautiful love letter, workout shirt and yoga pants, an iPod case, and a a few other things. He sent my little sister a lot of Halloween things as well. He is just the most thoughtful person.
Things have been good with us because we have learned that in long distance relationships, you really have to let go of the fights and problems because they stem from the distance. You cannot blame your partner, but the distance.
When we oovooed last night before bed, he kept looking at me and telling me how beautiful I was. And it hit me that- I have never, ever had a boy in my life tell me that I am beautiful. Or treat me like a princess. Or remember all of the little details about me. Or stick with me even after he knows all of my horrible flaws, AND loves them. A boy who always came after me when we fought. A boy who constantly text and called me to see if I was okay. A boy who always talked to me about our future, and how he couldn’t wait to marry me. My boyfriend is my best friend. I truly do not know where I would be without him. Honestly, I am really happy. I cannot wait to get our life started together. For now, though, I can truly say I am enjoying our relationship as it is despite the distance. As difficult as it may get sometimes, we have learned that our love is stronger than anything and that we will never let anything get in between.
And so on that note, I will go get everything ready for tomorrow and then Skype my baby so we can sleep together. Send me any questions, stories, venting, pictures, anything you guys would want to share with me of you and you LDRSO! Thank you all for following me. I hope you have a great night, and a lovely week. Don’t forget to put your love into all you do. You will get to where you want to be. The circumstances may be rough, but love will get you through it all. <3
Being in a long distance relationship is harder than it looks. Being in love is most of it, but it takes understanding and patience. You need to understand that it’s just as hard on your significant other as it is on you. You think your feelings are the only ones that matter and that they should make all the sacrifices to satisfy your needs but you rarely ever think that they feel the same way. It’s about knowing how to make the other person happy.
I’m so happy we didn’t lose eachother today. You’re my best friend, and I love you more than I love anyone. And I always will, no matter what.
It’s hard. And I know we shouldn’t be together, I know what people think. But I can’t live without you. I really can’t. This distance won’t always be there though, and in a couple years I’ll be able to be with you all the time.
I love you with all my heart and soul, darling. Don’t ever forget that.
In the aftermath
Well…I just spent a week with my ldb. Utterly incredible, I was beyond happy. And now I’m back to hours spent skyping instead of hours cuddling on the couch. I sobbed on the plane ride home, turning and walking away from him in the airport was the hardest. Our first kiss when I got off the plane was magical though. That’s the only way I can describe it. Seeing him for that little bit only made me fall more in love with him. It’s been 24 hours since I last kissed him, and I’m already counting down to Christmas.
