2 years with him

We started as best friends. We were inseparable- only through texting of course. I knew his favorite color: forrest green, and he knew mine. If that’s not friendship then I don’t know what is. We remained best friends from my freshmen year all the way until my junior year. I was there for him while he vented to me about his girl problems. If only he knew I had the biggest crush on him, I would think. However, I bit my tongue and accepted the role as ‘The Best Friend’. In November of my junior year my family and I took a week long cruise. Joshua and I realized that our texting streak would soon come to a halt. It was during this period of separation that we realized our true feelings for one another. On January 6th, 2014 he sat me down and asked me to be his girlfriend. Two years ago I didn’t understand how much of an impact the word “yes” would have. I didn’t know about the beautiful memories that we would soon make together. But I also didn’t know how difficult relationships could be. The first year together was filled with many ups and downs. Not only was the transition from best friends to a couple difficult, but awkward as well. We quickly had to learn how to deal with one another on a much more intimate level. We both experienced very personal emotions and feelings together. He learned things like how cranky I get when I’m hungry, while I discovered how often he forgets his wallet at home. Being together for two years taught us to ensure I’m always fed, along with a reminder to bring his wallet- all done with smiles on our faces. Ultimately we’re growing and learning together. The more experiences and hardships we go through, the stronger we become as a team. I couldn’t be in a happier place with him, though. With the love and care he provides me, every day is a happy one.

  1. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many


    1. Thank you so much! And hmm, that’s a really good question. Typically I’ll choose a topic that I know I’m passionate about. When you write about something you love and are knowledgable about, the words tend to roll right off your tongue. But if I’m still struggling, I’ll simply grab a pen and paper and jot down notes and ideas. There’s no avoiding writers block though- even the best writers face it. I wish you the best of luck!! 🙂
