Be My Forever

7 years ago I nervously waited at the arrivals terminal in the Sevilla, Spain airport.  I had been talking to him on the phone and online for 5 months.  We were smitten. But real life can be a whole other realm from the virtual world. What if he was really a douche? What if he smelled funny? What if we just didn't get along once we were tangibly near one another? The anticipation was killing me, as I'd already done this the day prior, only for him to have missed his plane and get stuck overnight in Paris. Now I had an extra day to lament and overanalyze. Omg omg OMG please don't be a tool!

We embraced and the next week was a whirlwind of googly eyes, traveling, laughing, talking, and ... well, I'll spare the saucy details;) From that first day we knew we'd be together forever.

7 years have flown by. They haven't always been easy, but they've definitely been interesting, mostly fun and filled to the brim with new and exciting adventures. We've lived in Europe together, explored numerous countries in a short time, have gone through major career changes, both have blasted through different hairstyles and colors and body shapes, supported one another through school, changed vehicles, bought & sold houses (in our second one now), got a dog, had an amazing little girl and about to add to our growing family in a few short weeks with baby #2. We've laughed together, cried together, fought, talked, danced, ran, and loved. We've been through our fair share of ups and downs but couldn't have endured without one another.

Christmas morning, a day shy of our "official" anniversary, our little girl walked up to me holding a glass ring made by my artist and around the corner came Jeff and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! We've been married in our hearts, souls and daily lives for years but now we are going to make it official & legal. I love you Jeffaronie! You were my missing puzzle piece for so many years. My lobster <3 p="p">
