Happy 9th Anniversary

We’ve been through many ups and downs in our relationship. Today on our anniversary I want to express how thankful I am that we’ve stayed together through it all. The best is yet to come!

 

Romance On the Road

Romance-on-the-road

I want to go on a road trip. Just you and me. The highway, the radio, the blue sky, the back roads, and windows down. We will talk about everything and nothing. We will make memories we will never forget. Just you and me.

The Great Adventure

This blog started out as Love Letters Across the Miles. After a rough few years we are ready to put the past behind us. That chapter is closed and I turn the page in my life’s book, ready to begin a new chapter.

My husband and I decided to quit our jobs, rent out our house and move to Mexico for a year. My husband, myself and 2 cats are leaving in less than two weeks. After the year is up we may decide to stay in Mexico or travel on to another destination. I have decided to write about my journey and my new life adventure.

We have given most of our clothes to the local homeless shelter, sold or junked most of our possessions, except for a few totes of important things that I have put into storage, and sold 2 out of 3 vehicles. Travel documents are purchased, house is almost empty except for furnishings (I am renting the house furnished). I am excited.

 

 

Shark Tank

Shark Tank

You have to love someone in the cracks between the big moments. You have to grab their hand when you’re sitting on the couch watching Shark Tank together and you have to give them a little knowing look that says, “I see you and I love you here in the mundane moments of our life.”

Always

Always

I love you. After all this time. I still love you. It’s always been you. It was you yesterday. It was you today. It will be you tomorrow. And for the rest of my life. It will be you. I love you.

Fix the Broken Relatioship

Fix itDon’t break up. Fix the problem. This is why there are so many failed relationships… it’s too easy to just give up.

Start the romance again. Go on dates again. Work on winning each other over again.

If you love each other, then breaking up is not the answer.

 

All My Love

tenor

“I Love you” means I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times.

Love Is… Sticking Together

Love is...

I want us to last. I didn’t want a few amazing years and then for it to be over in a flash.

I don’t want to experience the feeling of hurt, confusion, or disappointment again.

No matter what we run into and no matter how hard things get, I want us to stick together.

 

 

I’m Still Here

Strength

I’m still healing from heartbreak but I have chosen to stay. There is strength in staying, in living in the uncomfortable space that is all around me. I have chosen to stay and show up for myself instead of chasing the next thrill of adventure to numb the pain of heartbreak. I have chosen to find strength in patience. It still hurts, I’m still uncomfortable, I’m slowly accepting things for what they are instead of letting go.

I’m still raw, but I’m also still here.

Relationships Aren’t Easy

Relationships ARen't Easy

If you want to be with someone, you have to be mature enough to stick around when things get tough. Relationships aren’t always easy.

Why I Stayed

Why I Stayed

I stayed because I know, that somewhere, underneath the anger and hatred I’m feeling at the moment, beneath that shield of bitterness and disappointments. I know, he’s still there. That man that I love and adore. The one who first made me believe that this is all worth fighting for. I have faith, that someday, he will eventually be revived. When he’s ready to continue this adventure that we started together. I know someday, his heart will be awakened and he’ll continue our journey to fight for our love that is worth fighting for. I have faith that someday, he’ll come back… I will hear him tell me those three words again. And I will believe him.

This is the reason why I stayed.

Sometimes

Sometimes

Sometimes I think about when we used to talk. We’d talk about dreams and fears and how real change could happen with a little time. But now more than a little time has gone by and now we don’t talk anymore. I try to remember all the things I wanted then. And all the things I want now and what’s different and what’s the same. I sometimes miss that dreaming we would do when we still talking. Before the avalanche came down and everything changed. When I believed in you and thought you believed in me.

Because even if things were wrong then and I knew about it, I didn’t yet know the full extent. I couldn’t possibly have. And even if I was without that knowledge, ignorant me was happy with the dreaming. She was happy with the talking. Sometimes those are the things we’re willing to trade. Talking instead of silence. Dysfunction instead of truth. Dreaming instead of leaving. A happy me for a happier you.

You can’t pick and choose the things you want in a person, but if I could, I’d pick the you who would let me rest my head on his chest and tell me the things he wanted to do.

Love Story

I wanted to live happily ever after. I wanted to cook breakfast with you in the mornings and fall asleep with you in the evenings. I wanted to see what you looked like with grey hair. I had so much more planned for us and I feel like our love story ended prematurely.

But maybe we can still do those things. Maybe our story hasn’t officially ended yet.

Oh Happy Day!!!

Today I heard some news that made me want to jump with joy … they are having a baby. I think this is the beginning of the end of my heartache.

My heart feels light for a change. The weight of the stress has been lifted and I can breathe a sigh of relief.

I really hope we can get back on track together now. I really do. It will never be the same as it once was – I was hurt too deeply – but I am so ready to move on from this maelstrom you’ve caused me over the past couple of years.

Life’s looking up!

 

A Realtionship Means…

Realtionships

A relationship means that you come thogether to make each other better.

Beleive in each other. Suport each other. Build each other.

Be their peace, not their problem.

 

 

Through It All

through it all

I stayed with you through all the bullshit because I was torn between not givin up on the person I loved and coming to term with the fact that the person I loved no longer existed inside the body I was staring at everyday. And I don’t give a fuck what anyone says … that is really difficult. But, true love stays, even when things get difficult.

I Never Agreed to Share Your Heart

Love

I don’t want a relationship where I am suspicious of you. I don’t want to watch you flip your phone upside down when I enter the room and add a passcode just in case you leave it behind when you run to the bathroom. I don’t want to wonder who you are texting. I don’t want to be on the constant lookout for signs you are cheating.

I don’t want to deal with the baggage that comes with you cheating on me. I don’t want to feel disrespected by someone who is supposed to love me.

I would rather have you do the mature, adult thing and leave me before you come close to acting unfaithful. I would rather have you rip the Bandaid off right this second than continue to be with me while flirting with another behind my back.

I never signed up for an open relationship. I never agreed to share your heart. If you cannot give me every single sliver, then take the entire thing away. I would rather watch you leave than have you sit beside me wishing you were gone.

I should be enough for you. You should not be looking for comfort outside from me. You don’t get to be in a relationship on days off while acting single at work. You get to choose one or the other. You have to make a decision — and it should not be a difficult one.

Whether you leave me or cheat on me, you are going to hurt me, so you might as well do it in the most respectful way possible. You might as well handle my heart gently by telling me it is over.

I would rather have you leave me than cheat on me. I would rather have you break my heart the old fashioned way than pretend you care about me when you are already invested in someone else.

Be Loyal or Stay Single

 

Be Loyal

It should be a no brainer.

And I can’t believe I hadn’t realized that when we spent all those moments together she was in the back of your mind the whole fucking time.

Life’s Journey

Walk with me through life…and I’ll have everything I’ll need for the journey.

 

Together

together

Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.

Happy 7th Anniversary

Seven years…. it seems like only yesterday we said “I do”. Love you just as much now as I did then.

Side by Side

It makes me happy just being by your side.

Happy New Year My Love

“It’s a new dawn a new day and I’m feeling good” – Michael Bublé

Can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us.

Merry Christmas Husband

The holiday season is the best time of year. One of the things that makes it so great is that I get to spend it with you.

Today is the start of 18 days in paradise with you. Looking forward to going places neither of us have been before and exploring 2 new countries with you. What an adventure!

 

 

 

Together

When we get to the end of our lives together, the house we had, the cars we drove, the things we owned, none of that will matter. What will matter is, I had you and you had me.

From This Day Forward

as-long-as-we-both-shall-live

We are going to get through this together. We always do.

Hand in Hand

hand-in-hand

Penguins are monogamous, often having one mate for a lifetime. Death of their life partner is about the only circumstance that causes them to search for a new mate.

 

Gezelligheid

gezelligheid

Gezelligheid is an untranslatable Dutch word that means “the warmth of being with loved ones.” This winter I want to stay warm with you.

I love spending time with you.

Sticky Love

H2O

Like hydrogen and oxygen we stick together because we both know that there is chemistry when we are together.

Missing You

Missing You

 Missing someone isn’t about how long it’s been since you’ve seen them last or the amount of time since you last talked … it’s about that very moment when you are doing something and you wish they were right there with you.

Oh Joy

Oh Joy

Every moment that I’m with you I feel so happy.

 

So Into You

Words, however special could never tell you all the love I have for you within my heart.

 

A Big Yes

A Big Yes

I would still say yes even if my ring came from a gumball machine.

Everyday with you is Valentine’s Day for me.

 

I Love You Because

I Love You Because

 

I love you because every cell of my body responds to your touch, to your look, to the way you move and the way you sound. I love you because something, somewhere, directed me to you. Through the paths we have taken to one another, I have loved you. I’ve played in comfortable places among comfortable people until I had no choice but to leave there to come to you here.

Happy Anniversary

Happy 5th Anniversary

Five years ago today, we became husband and wife. We knew we belonged together. And now, half a decade later, I can say with absolute certainty that the past five years have been the best of my entire life. I don’t tell you this as often as I should, but I love being your wife. In fact, I’m proud to be your wife. You would do anything for me. You put up with me and my shenanigans, day in and day out. And for that, you deserve more than a blog post, you deserve a trophy. Thank you for remaining endlessly patient with me. That might be your best quality. Cheers to the second half of this decade, and many, many more to come. I love you, B. Always have always will.

Magical Love

It’s not my love for you that makes you special. It’s the magical feeling that I get while talking to you or while being together with you.

It’s always nice spending time just the two of us, and reminding myself for the 8 gajillionth time that you really are my best friend, and my favorite person to hang out with.

 

Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

Although I feel like our marriage is in great shape, it’s easy to get lost in routine. I am thankful we have the opportunity to get away together this weekend. Sometimes we spend so much time caught up in the everyday that it’s important to be reminded how much fun we have together.
