If you were to read all of my previous posts you would see this: A girl who loves adventure, an explorer of all things, and has a pretty carefree spirit. She also was sold on the fact that she would be forever single, without a family of her own except for a dog, and just taking it one adventure at a time. Most of that still holds true except for a few, well major important details. Going forward here’s what you will see: A girl who loves adventure, an explorer of all things, and has a pretty carefree spirit. With the love of her life by her side taking it one adventure at a time.
Behind it all… I still wanted to be the girl making a Pinterest wedding board and thinking of cute school lunches I could make for my kids someday (dogs or mini-me’s still questionable). I was just happy and okay with who and how I was—which is the most important part of the puzzle. Everything to come after was just a bonus, an extension to the already functioning girl who had her place in the world.
I didn’t expect to fall in love and find the person I want to spend the rest of my life with, especially so quickly. He was certainly a game changer. I’m not the type of girl to fall for someone and not change my mind a couple weeks later, or realize I was actually falling for the idea and they weren’t the person for me at all. I surprised myself too.
I know what you’re thinking—how do you know you’re going to spend the rest of life with him? I don’t but I’ve never felt this way before and when you know, you know. Yes, many people say the same things and their relationships don’t last… whether it be 5 months, 5 years, or even 25 years later and it ends. Sure that’s a possibility but I’m not those people. And regardless of what happens even 5 days from now, I know that I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and nothing is going to ruin that.
We want the same things, but we aren’t the same people. We are such different people in so many ways but we both love and appreciate the same important stuff.
He has the big family I also hoped to be a part of some day. Being the only child, I would have had to to rely on hoping my cousins wouldn’t get tired of me spending time with them.
Not one thing about him annoys me—and thats huge for me.
Here I was playing a game of Trouble thinking I would be stuck going around the board forever, until one day I popped the right number on the die and landed right into home base with my other half. Game. Changer.
