There’s No Place Like Home

The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t, but in the end they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.-Carrie, Sex and the City

Last week Match completed his summer job that kept him up late nights. I am so so happy it is done. As a kick off to his freedom, we went on a road trip to Oregon, to visit my parents.

We had the car loaded up with my dog, my parrot, and my Match. It was an 8 hour drive, but it flew by. Originally we were going to stay in a hotel, but after examining the seedy-they-should-charge-by-the-hour-sorry-excuse-for-motels along the way, we opted to drive all night. After a long day of work you would think 8 hours in the car would have been torture, but with Match it was actually fun. Continue reading There’s No Place Like Home

Shall We Dance?

You know as well as I do it’s not about what you look like, or your job, or how successful you are. It’s about having people in your life that you love and who love you… that’s all that matters-Miranda, Sex and the City

This past weekend goes down as one of the best I’ve had in a very long time. Friday started strong with Match and I getting ready for a poker party at my friend Brazil and her hubby’s house. When Match walked in, he was dressed in a white shirt and khakis and looked so so fine. He had that whole sexy casual yet kind of dressy look going on. I was so proud to walk into that party with him.

He immediately hit it off with all of my friends; laughing, joking around, and playing a mean game of poker. I sadly lost quickly but I blame it on Match and his constant handsy-ness during the game. It was more than a little distracting! Just as we started settling into a relaxed party environment, Birthday Twin walked in. Continue reading Shall We Dance?

My Midnight Visitor

A person doesn’t have to be perfect to be exactly what you need.-Elliot, Scrubs

I have to apologize for not writing lately but I am dog tired. Match Guy has been working two jobs and getting home anywhere between midnight and 1 am. It’s the only time we’ve been able to see each other, so I wake up and try to spend about an hour together. It is starting to really take its toll on me though because I’m exhausted. I miss him so much and I can’t wait till he is done with this second job. He has Friday and Saturday off, and then just four more days and he’s done. Then it’s a road trip to my parents house and a well deserved vacation for the both of us. At least we have instant messenger during the day, but it’s not the same.

Emotionally Withdrawing From Me

What I’ll never get is why you could open your heart to someone who broke it into pieces but you couldn’t open it to someone who just wanted to heal it.-Marin, Men in Trees

I love how lately when I get home from work Match Guy is there waiting for me with a warm smile and a big hug. It is such a great end to a long day. Yesterday when I came home he grabbed me and said, “Do you know you’re amazing and that every day I like you more and more?” He always does that, with the sweet things to say. 🙂

Since I’ve been over here on Cloud 9 with lilies and happy thoughts abounding, I got to thinking about my past. As bad as guys have been before Match, without them I would never have fully understood just how great this guy really is. I know most of my readers seem to enjoy my sappy gushings about how great Match Guy is, I’m sure a little spice won’t hurt either. So for today’s entry, I think I’ll take a little trip down memory lane. Continue reading Emotionally Withdrawing From Me

What a Beautiful Mess I’m In

I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting,
challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous. -Carrie, Sex and the City

These past few weeks has been a whirlwind and I can’t believe it’s already the 8th of July. Man time really does fly when you’re having fun. I can honestly say that I’m falling in love with Match Guy. It is incredible how he seems to love everything about me. From the way I smile to the silly dorky little dances I do when I’m excited.

I went away last weekend to Oregon to visit family and left my dear Match Guy to take care of my pets. It was the first time we’d spent more than a night apart since we started our sleepovers. Ever since we met there has only been one day that we didn’t see each other for at least part of the day. Normally with boyfriends I have no problem leaving for a weekend. Sure I miss them a little but I’m so busy with family I barely think about it. Such was not the case this time. Continue reading What a Beautiful Mess I’m In
