The best years of my life.

**I *know* I said I probably wouldn’t blog about M much anymore, but I just feel compelled…for obvious reasons.**

Two years ago (tomorrow), I met M, for the very first time, on our first date.

Two years later? I am absolutely certain these have been the best two years of my life. 

My life…amplified.

Because I finally found the man that was ‘handmade‘ just for me.

Because our love has grown exponentially in this past year alone, let alone the last two.

Because I look at the letter I wrote him last year, and can name off so many more reasons why I love him. Deeper, stronger…forever.

Because this year of living together (that just passed!) has proven that we can argue, nitpick, annoy, frustrate and love each other all in the same breathe. (and still love each other!)

Because he makes me laugh harder than anyone can, because he makes me swoon with just a word, a gesture, a smile, and a kiss.

Because he can put up with me when I go into ‘princess mode.’

And most of all….because he is my sherpa.

I go into this weekend feeling blessed, loved from the tips of my toes to the top of my head, and so full of gratitude. Love…is worth the winding road, no matter how you get there, or how many times it takes to get it ‘just right.’ Cheers, friends.

  1. Love to see you so happy, and so grateful for all that you have! And honestly? When it comes to you and M, I have a feeling that the best is still yet to come for the two of you. 🙂

  2. hehe, I had to giggle at the ‘princess mode’ comment — you’re right, he totally rolls with the punches when you get that way (yes, a mode I can get into too, I do realize, hehe). He is tailor made for you sis — I just LOVE seeing you two grow stronger and stronger both together and independently. It’s so beautiful, and I am SO happy you two found love together. I hope this weekend is magical for you both…something tells me it will be amazing. 🙂 xoxo love you guys!!

    1. He DOES roll with the princess mode punches, doesn’t he? I love us, and I love who we are separately too. It’s a beautiful thing. Love you sis!

  3. I absolutely love this! It’s kind of amazing when you meet the person that is “handmade” for you. I love how you put that! I feel the same way about Tony! I am so incredibly happy for you two! Enjoy your weekend and your anniversary together!

    1. It IS amazing. Especially after my past, and never realizing how ‘handmade’ someone really can be for you! I love that you have this with Tony too!

  4. happy 2-year anniversary! such heartfelt words in this post – I feel the same way about B. 🙂 I can’t believe it’s already been a year since you two moved in together. I remember that like it was yesterday. hope you’re having a magical weekend! xo

    1. aww! I know you and B are quite similar in this way to M and me. I LOVE that. I too can’t believe we moved in together a year ago, crazy how time flies 🙂 XO

  5. I remember that beautiful letter… I am so very happy for you. reading things like “handmade” and “amplified” just give me that stomach jump happy elated feeling, you know?

    …and I laughed at the “princess mode” – Jason puts up with mine too 😉

    1. You went to spam – fail!! I love that you remember that letter too 🙂 I love that it even gave YOU the stomach jump happy feeling 🙂 Princess mode…I think we all have it, right? 😉 hehe.
