Completely In Love With You

Hello love,

I didn’t see you coming, you know. When you walked into my life it wasn’t some dramatic entrance, it wasn’t some sort of spectacle. Lights didn’t shine down and focus solely on you, despite that I couldn’t have taken my eyes off of you either way. I didn’t know that when I met you, you were going to become such a large part of my life. I didn’t know I would want you to be.

I wasn’t sure I would want anyone to be, for a very long time.

The truth is, I didn’t know in the beginning just how long you would stay. I spent the first few weeks, even months, filled with a mix of overwhelming excitement about every new experience we had together and underlying nervousness while I waited for the other shoe to drop. I am used to the idea that the moment you get too excited about something, that’s the moment it slips from your grasp. I’ve learned that once you think you have something to call yours, it makes it known it never was to begin with.

You definitely are something that I am not used to. The way you handle things, the way you look at the world, the way you look at me, are things that feel so foreign. I enjoy discovering new things about you. Whether it’s by you telling me yourself or when I manage to catch a moment of you being who you are, unashamedly. I have found comfort in the way you manage to not get tired of having me around, despite that I wait for you to say it. I appreciate how if I ever do something that does get to you, you tell me, because you’re not afraid to do those kinds of things. I adore the way that you’ve always respected me in my decisions, my ideas, and all the things that are important to me.

The truth is, somewhere along the way of all these whirlwind moments I fell completely and remarkably in love with you. And it scares me sometimes.

It scares me in the way that somehow my heart has made more room for someone that it ever has before. It scares me that I can love someone so much already and still feel like I don’t know them the way that I should. It scares me that in the moments where I let my guard down and can briefly see a future in it that includes you and me, that it doesn’t seem constraining or suffocating. It scares me that I can look at you and see a person I might want to share a home with someday, that I can look at you and see home in a person.

Yet at the same time, I can admit that loving you has been far more incredible than anything else. The moments where I know I can have the worst of days and you wrap your arms around me, no questions asked. The moments where we spend what feels like hours laughing at something we both found hilarious, even if no one else would’ve found it nearly as amusing. The moments where I open myself up to you because I know I can trust you with all the parts of me, not just the ones that are seemingly perfect. The moments where when I’ve looked back on my days and weeks, I realize that my most favorite moments usually included you, too.

I may not know a lot of things about how my life is going to turn out. I may not have any idea where I’ll be in the next few years, or what I’ll be doing. All I know is that I’m holding onto some hope that you find yourself right there with me, just like you are right now.

Because I’m completely and remarkably in love with you. But it’s starting to be a little less scary than it used to be.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Show The World She Is Yours

Hello loves ❤

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY 🙂

Below are some great examples to show the world that she is yours ❤

  1. Leave her something in a public place.

Maybe this is a note on the windshield of her car, a bouquet of flowers at her work, a special message taped or written on her bathroom mirror. This doesn’t have to be grand, but it’s thoughtful, sweet, and shows everyone around her that she’s loved.

 

  1. Hold her hand in public.

Some sort of intimate contact—whether that’s pulling her closer, grabbing her hand, or putting your arm around her shoulders—claims her as yours. You’re not only making her feel comforted and cared for, but you’re expressing your love in a physical way.

 

  1. Post something public about your relationship.

Social media isn’t for everyone (and it can sometimes be a big of a downer) but if you and your partner are comfortable sharing pieces of your lives, then tag her in a photo or post and flood your feed with how happy you two are. This is a public (but personal) way to share how much the relationship means to you.

 

  1. Pull her in for a kiss when you’re in the middle of crowd, dancefloor, or event.

In the middle of the craziness, in the midst of your everyday lives, be intentional about paying attention to her. Even if this is just a simple kiss, it shows the world that even when things are busy, you’re still focused on her.

 

  1. Bring her along to a family dinner or get-together.

Your family is blood—you’re very close with them. Show her how much you value her by bringing her around your family or introducing her to a sibling or parent.

 

  1. Invite her out with your friends.

Showing her off and letting her meet your friends is a way to show her you’re truly serious. You wouldn’t bring someone around you had no intentions to keep.

 

  1. Absentmindedly give her small displays of affection.

If you see she’s stressed, if you’re waiting in line, if there’s a quiet moment where you can make it known you’re thinking about her—do so. Massage her shoulders, rub her back, give her a hug; it’s the little things cthat mean the most.

 

  1. Acknowledge her when she speaks.

In a world plagued by over-use of technology, make sure to give her full eye contact when she speaks. Not only will this tell her that you’re focused, but it will show the world that she’s a priority to you.

 

  1. Do something for her without prompting.

You can show the world you love her by doing something for her without being asked. Maybe that’s opening her car door, helping her carry groceries, buying her drink when you’re getting a refill—big or little, these actions are tangible representations of your love.

 

  1. Randomly compliment her.

When you’re out with a group of people, make it a point to say something kind or whisper a sweet nothing in her ear. This will show her that no matter what’s going on or where you are, she is yours.

 

I pray you all have a lovely Valentines Day ❤

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
