The "L" Word

"This is true love, you think this happens everyday?" ~Wesley in The Princess Bride

Well, my ever so devoted readers, I really don't have much to update you on, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway.

On Sunday night he told me, for the first time, that he loves me. I haven't been able to stop smiling all week. Every time he tells me my heart does a little flip and I start smiling all over again. It's been a long time since I've been in love and I'd forgotten how good it feels. He finds little ways to tell me all the time, too. One of my favorite things is waking up to a text message that simply says, "Have a great day, I love you!"

My roommate is out of town this week and I was a little anxious about being home alone (I don't like staying in an empty house, it freaks me out a little). When I was talking to him about my anxieties he looked me in the eyes and said, "Babe, you really think I'd just let you stay here and worry? I'll be here with you on all your nights off until I have to go home and go to bed. Don't worry about anything." It made me feel safer just knowing that he wants to take care of me.

About a week ago we had a weird day. For some reason we both just felt weird about things and we weren't sure what was going on. He went to the temple and then we talked about things. We decided that everything happens for a reason and there's a reason we're together and we wanted to just take things one day at a time and see what happened. In the words of the movie Because I Said So, "We're just having an off day, and if we stay together I'm sure we'll have a few hundred more." Things are better now, don't worry. :)

He finds little ways to surprise me and make me smile. I love that.

So, that's about all the updating I can think of. I'll keep you all posted of things to come.
