My boyfriend will be happy with the bottom three being in the apartment, but not so sure the others will get the same reaction ❤#disney#cohabiting#movies#love conquers
School is over for the semester, such a huge relief, the weight is lifted. Now, I actually have days off. Working five days and going to school on the other days wore me out this semester. And I am anxiously waiting for all of my grades to be posted.
And I had time to actually get my hair cut hahah
I also got to patch some things up with some of my family, which is a huge deal, considering my family.
Also, I am so thankful and excited the holidays are coming up so soon. I love Christmas and all of the traditions.
With no school, I actually get to spend some time with my honey. FINALLY.
Thank goodness the year is almost over, I am so ready to be done with 2012 and have a fresh start and new beginning.
I just turned 21 and I am ready to be on to the next thing.
2013 will bring a lot and I’m ready for this to all get started. I’m graduating college, hopefully finding a job, moving somewhere (maybe different house/apartment or maybe a new location), and who knows what else.
Tonight, honey and I are going to cook our first meal in our apartment. It’s going to be taco night! I am so excited to cook and enjoy some down time together. There isn’t much of that often. Taco night is also my favorite.
And I am
slowly, quickly and surely moving in with him. We are going to work out all the bills and make everything work for us. I am so in love with how things are going for us, finally.
Since he has been home we have been moving in the perfect direction. He is so understanding of my insane schedule and is always willing to help in every way he can. I try to give as much as I can to us and so for so wonderful.
Thank goodness I have my man in my life. I could do it without him, but I wouldn’t be me, or even close. I would be a shell of a person. I would be closed off and a work-a-holic/school obsessed (at least more than I already am).
He drives me nuts, I know that best, but to have those nuts times are nothing compared to those great times. They can even closely follow and precede each other, but nonetheless he is my other half and I am incredibly thankful and blessed to have him.
Can I just mention that tonight is my last being in a long-distance relationship! After a year long deployment to Afghanistan and another year of him being on the East Coast and me being in the Midwest and then a few months of me being in Europe. In addition, before we even started dating, I had already been had my heart set on him. After all of this, tomorrow it is all over. And the end of him being in the Army and me being his trusty milso.
Derek is getting out of the Army and I am flying down to him to bring him back home. The past couple of months have been tough, no doubt about that, but I have to be optimistic that after everything we have been through and that this is just what we have wanted for the last couple of years that this is what will work.
On to a new chapter for us, one with us being in the same place and hopefully sooner than later we are in the same home.
Derek is my baby and I want nothing more than for this to work and I am ecstatic that tomorrow we will really be able to start what we have wanted for so long now.
I don’t have any shifts today and tomorrow! And I have so much to update on.
Being back in the states after 10 weeks abroad is wonderful. I have been spending lots of time alone, because for the entire time I was gone I was always with people. I love my alone time and I know soon it will all be changing, in really great ways.
On the other hand a lot of not so great things have been happening. A few members of my family are sick and my step-dad’s sister just passed away.
My dad, who has been living in Australia for the past four years, is coming back to the states to visit this week and is having a wedding ceremony. I haven’t seen him in two years and we do not have a great relationship. Actually, we have a terrible relationship. We haven’t spoken in over a year and I was very happy with that arrangement, but now he is back and to save my relationships with my other family members I am going to his wedding. Let’s hope this goes well.
Also, school starts in a little while. Right after Labor Day. I have been out of classes for two weeks now and I am not thrilled to be going back.
Best news of all, my boyfriend is getting out of the Army. He will be moving home in about a week. Originally, he was getting out in February, then November and now it is next week. All this came about when I was in London and when we were not always getting along.
Now we are so close to having a relationship that we see each other regularly and we are able to be physically there for one another and there is no way I was giving up on us before we give this a shot.
For now, I’m going to take some time to just relax before I start my errands and chores.
Just a little update :)
Everyone talks about how wonderful love is but now what to do when love is there but just about everything else is a complete mess.
I wish I could give you a kiss good night and sleep in your arms. I miss you so much my sweet boy. I can’t wait until the time that we don’t have to leave each other. You are my world Derek and I am more than happy to have the world that I do. I hope everything with the week is going well and I can’t wait to hear whatever you want to tell. Honey I love you more and more everyday. You’re the love of my life and my other half, simple as that.
Love is such an amazing thing. People who are touched by it are simply blessed. I am a lucky one to have a love that truly has conquered everything it has been set up against. I had to go through terrible things, in particular ones that were my fault, to realize how spectacular love and forgiveness can be.
I am simply incredibly thankful to have such a wonderful man. I love him more than anything.
