Today is the day! I can’t believe it’s finally here, in twelve hours I’ll see your face again, in twelve hours you’ll hold me again, in twelve hours my heart will be whole and my “happily ever after” will have begun.
If I woke up to notes like these every day from the man of my dreams, for the rest of my life, I would die happy.
It’s amazing how much you can learn about a person if you just listen. Everyone has a story to tell, and maybe, just maybe with your silence you could help that person share theirs.
Kiss me like it was the first time. Kiss me like it’s going to be our last. That’s how they all should be.
Just over two months ago I received a life changing phone call. I received the best news of my life, from the most amazing person I know. I will never forget the day my boyfriend called me and told me he was offered a career in London, England, and asked me if I would move with him. That day had to have been the greatest day of my adult life.
This sort of thing doesn’t just happen to people, certainly not to me. My heart skipped a beat, I had a frog in my throat, the world stopped for a split second; without any second thought I whispered “of course I will go with you”. I was so happy, but crying, not an inch of my body was afraid, or worried, or hesitant or sad. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to travel the world with their best friend.
Two weeks went by and he had gone to England to begin his adventure, to begin our adventure. I still had many things to get in order before I left forever (potentially). I stayed and worked, and planned, and missed him dearly.
A month and a half went by and I made the decision to leave Toronto once and for all. I quit my job, said my goodbyes to my dearest friends, packed my bags, picked up our cat and left for Ottawa. I’ve been spending this wonderful time with my family, sisters, brother, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I’ve even been able to spend some quality time with my great friends from high school before I begin this wonderful journey.
But yesterday, everything became so real; my flight to England was booked. In 13 days I will be in the United Kingdom indefinitely. In 13 days time I will be back into the arms of the man of my dreams. In 13 days I will get off an airplane, grab my luggage, walk through to arrivals, and see him, and hug him, and kiss him, and never let him go. We will cry, we will laugh, we will have so many stories for each other, I have had dreams of that day.
And when that day comes, it will mark the beginning of the best days of my adult life.
Honestly, no one can predict it. Every relationship starts somewhere, whether its on purpose or by accident or without you even noticing until you’re knee deep into it. Life is made up of all your little life lessons mashed together, you’ll both learn and grow and be better because of it. No beginning or end is ever certain, I wouldn’t worry so much.
