Cheers to the New Year
"According to Greek Mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves." -Plato's The Symposium
On July 3, 2006, my life changed forever, and I had no idea.
I met the person I'm suppose to spend the rest of my life with on that warm, summer evening. My good friend and I were sipping sweet Starbucks drinks after a long day when a co-worker she had trained with came over to say hi. He was funny and I couldn't stop laughing long enough to contribute to the conversation. I instantly wanted to spend more time with him.
It wasn't until after summer that we started dating. He was sweet, adorable, sarcastic, and hilarious. We connected faster than I ever thought possible. I learned what having chemistry felt like. I learned about love.
After seven years, our instant connection has grown into a partnership. He's seen me sob over a squirrel's death, laugh until I snort, sick as can be, sans makeup, and mad as hell. He's tolerated episodes of Sex and the City, failed cooking attempts, and numerous house guests needing to get back on their feet. My home is him.
On January 18, 2014, my life changed again when this person asked me to marry him. I accepted and we celebrated with our close friends and family (also it was my birthday so we had some amazing cake).
It's been a little over a week and my heart is still fluttering. I was thinking on the way home from my parent's house yesterday about how much I have changed since I first became an adult. Some of these changes are due to age and experience but many are because of him. I met him when I was 19 and I was so happy to be with him, so incredibly content that I tried to become a better person just so he'd want to stick around.
I am glad it worked.
