I’ve been this girl. Hard core. I believed in a dream that was promised to me. I let that promise lure me into accepting less than I should have for […]
Ok, I fully admit it. I was being a girl yesterday. A big girl, not a baby….but still. HIGHLY emotional. Not irrational, but yes I admit emotional. More than normal […]
I’m going to share something personal tonight. Emails between me and Harry. He has been away since Monday morning. It feels like years. But that’s just me. I just want to preserve this. It’s mostly as it was sent…I did edit it for public consumption but the gist is there. This is special guys. Thank God.
Yesterday will go down in history for me as being my best cheese-ball day ever. I loved how unabashedly romantic both of us can be. My family has always rolled their eyes at me for how dorky I can be but most of the time I’m not trying to be, I just am and mostly cause I’m more sentimental than they are. Harry is too…we are a great match in that way.
We exploded unlike anything I have ever seen before. Fireworks pale in comparison.
It isn’t too much to say that it was completely over the top, completely insane, completely unprecedented and in addition, it was spewed on Facebook for all to see. We’ve been so far, very reserved, very appropriate, very retrained. And it wasn’t like there was anything that tipped us off.
I dropped him off back at the office and I watched him walk back into the stressful chaos of work and I took a deep breath knowing I would forever be connected to this man’s soul. I’ve never believed in soul mates. I figured I could find a way to love anyone and it was all about traits that you either could live with or not. And I still believe you can have a successful relationship with someone you find compatible.
I drove down to San Diego so we could have dinner together for my birthday. I got to his hotel before he was off work and waited for him in the lobby. As he walked in I saw that he had sunglasses on and a new shirt but man, as the doors opened I thought…wow, that is a really handsome guy. And he’s mine. MINE?! I walked over to him and nestled my head in his neck and gave him a big hug and kiss. His hugs rule. His arms are so massively huge and he’s so broad verses me being so tiny that he just envelopes me. It’s awesome.
The moon rose higher into the sky, the stars twinkled, and my pool light slowly faded from blue, to green back to blue. Just as I was about to start my last 10 lengths of the pool a song from Phantom of the Opera came on and memories came flashing into my head and I found myself listening to the long instrumental introduction and treading water in the middle of the pool.
Romance is futile drivel – without risk.
Give me all the romance in the world but also give me the truth.
And that my friends, I will believe. Because that is true love.
Ladies buy purses from street vendors in New York City that say the right name on the outside but they know they are fake. They buy them because they cost […]
