My Love Story


Photobucket


My life is not perfect. Is anyone's?
There was a time, several years back, when I thought I was going to have a "perfect" life.
I was very misled, and very mistaken.
5 years later, I am under no misconception that my life will ever be perfect...
But I love the way it is turning out.

It has been YEARS since I've dated... and I wasn't sure exactly how it would go, but what I have found is that you really should be with your best friend. And then life is good. And dating is easy.

I am currently dating my best friend.
I think he's wonderful.
And I want you all to know him to, so I'd like to introduce you to Javier.

Javi, thank you for being my friend.
Thank you for telling me the truth, even when it was hard...
For caring about me, even when I was broken.
For thinking I'm brilliant, even when I don't make sense...


Photobucket


Thank you for listening to my hilarious stories as though they are brand new, even when you've heard them 5 times already...
For eating tacos 6 times a week because that's my "thing".


Photobucket


Thank you for thinking it's funny when I'm mad at you, instead of raising your voice...
For explaining something simple 10 times, because I need to make sure I understand.
For thinking I'm beautiful on days that I feel like I'm a mess.

Thank you for showing my God's love, and patience when I'm frustrated and impatient.
For allowing me to heal, to grow, to move forward...
And for moving forward with me.


Photobucket


Thank you for having fun with me...
For making me laugh harder than anyone else...
For loving my silly dance moves, and trying to keep up with me.


Photobucket


Thank you for loving strangers....
For being kind to homeless people, mean people, and people that no one else loves....
For caring about the people who care about me...
For loving the teenagers that I love...
And thank you for loving me when I felt unlovable.

You are my favorite.

Special thanks to my lovely friend, Ala for the photos you see above (except the first one), and my friend Courtney for doing a wonderful job on my hair and make up.

It is best to date/marry/live with for the rest of your life your best friend . . . TWCIPL (This will come into play later)

Thanks for sharing, and nice to meet you Javier.
