When he plays with the ring I happen to wear on my ring finger (for no real reason other than it’s pretty and I like it), I can’t help but wonder if he is ever thinking about replacing it with a ring of greater significance.
Today was a good day. It had some ups and downs, but it was good. Jonny came with me to help my family set up for my sister’s baby shower. He was adorable helping with the decorations and playing with my cousin’s kids. I couldn’t tell him enough how much it meant to me for him to be there helping. And so many people commented on what a nice guy he is and how much they like him, not that I need anyone else to reaffirm what I already know. He’s the best :)
Then at some point I may have gotten down on myself a bit, but he was there to pick me up and put me back on my feet.
I kind of really don’t know how it is that I got to be so lucky. I mean, nothing is perfect and there are bad days with the good days. But I would have to say they are mostly good days. Mostly days where I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Because I really am lucky, and he’s lucky.
We’re both lucky to have each other.
This picture was taken over a year ago at the top of Glenn Onoko falls. Since then we visited countless nature preserves and state parks, and we have seen many waterfalls. But this day was special, it was perfect.
I can’t wait to go back there with you again some day :)
It’s a rare occurrence for me to have a reassuring dream about my relationship, probably because I have so much anxiety all of the time. But last night was a good dream, a very good dream that I could actually see happening some day. It’s probably because I’ve been feeling really good lately, secure.
On Sunday we acknowledged the fact that we have been together for a year and a half, the longest relationship either of us has ever had. And it made me feel really good yesterday when he told me that he had been thinking about me for a lot of the day. I can just feel the sincerity of his love. I love him..so very much.
But maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.
Emily Giffin—Love The One You’re With
Every chess piece plays its part,
The knights, the castles and the guards,
Moved around about the board,
Taking captives; replica war.
All the pieces guard one thing,
Their rightful leader; incompetent king.
Not for freedom, peace or love,
They fight this battle without thought of,
Whether or not it’s right or wrong,
They play their part; they fight to belong.
All of the pieces die without names,
But this isn’t war, this is chess; just a game…
I walk in the door to my friends house and this is what I find. It’s gonna be a good night. :D
At night, when I was a child,
The shadows on the walls used to be monsters,
And I would cry out in fear to my mom and dad.
They’d come running, telling me that it would all be okay.
Now, when I lay awake in bed at night,
The monsters are still here,
But there’s no one to come running if i scream,
So I don’t; I just lay here,
Telling myself that it will all be okay.
Well you know me, I know you, we’re just like everybody else. We do bend, we do break, we fall apart sometimes and we’re not perfect we’re not right, we’re made from every color. Can you relate? Like they say, we’re gonna need each other.
Paper Tongues (everybody)
The clavicle is my favorite bone
In the human body,
Next to the hip bones,
The way they protrude so elegantly
From under such lucid skin.
I want nothing more,
Than to feel their sharpness,
On my finger tips.
The way they were when
I didn’t eat, because he left me.
It’s harder to find them now,
Under this layer of happiness.
But I know I’ll find them again.
