As I mentioned earlier this week, it's been a ROUGH one.
And that was only Tuesday.
It's Friday now and I am just finally starting to feel the clouds lift a bit.
I am in my first VERY serious relationship.
The kind where you see each other often, without worrying when the next time will be.
The kind where you buy 51 inch Plasma TV's together.
And the kind where you're so comfortable, you start throwing caution to the wind.
I love my boyfriend. And I would venture to say that he is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me... but that doesn't always mean that every single day is going to be peachy.
In fact, it means that each day is going to be a new lesson.
A new opportunity to learn how to be a better partner for the person you love.
In short, I have been a little overwhelmed trying to do EVERYTHING right.
But Andy doesn't want that. And neither do I.
I want to do everything in life the way that makes ME comfortable.
If I am happy, he is happy.
And of course, it goes both ways.
Last night I picked up this classic book.
From Andy's bookshelf.
How much do I LOVE that my boyfriend has already read this book?!
We have actually both decided to read it.
To freshen up.
To learn new forms of communication.
And most of all, how to understand what each other is thinking and feeling...
so that we can LOVE each other with an open, beautiful heart.
