So, as you already know, Valentines Day was yesterday. I pretty much love Valentines Day!! Really, its one of my favorite holidays because I'm all about love and cheesy romance and all that fun stuff. I had the BEST valentine this year. I made Matts gift and the cheesy meter was off the charts, haha. And, as you saw before, Matt got me that amazing jounal(which I have loved writing in every night!) and the best playlist ever, featuring "our" songs AND custom album art, holllar :) And despite the fact that were hundreds of miles away, he managed to make the day special and amazing. Just another reminder of how lucky I am!
And, in honor of Valentines Day, I'm going to totally dedicate this post to gushing about my uber adorable boy.
First, is he not the most gorgeous thing ever? Ugh. I'm pretty sure he was created from my dreams.
"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life."

That, right there, sums up my feelings towards Matt perfectly. Ever since I seperated from Shayne, I have been so leary of dating. I had come to be content being alone and single and just kind of doing my thing. And its the craziest thing? But literally he was just there. Like fate had just dropped him in my lap, as if to say "dont give up on love just yet...". And since that day, we have literally talked non stop, every single day. Every day. And I can't get enough. I miss him every minute of every day. I think about him about just as often. My life is just....so much more beautiful, and so much happier, and hopeful with him in my life. I am smiling all day and I am laughing all the time and I'm just happy. Head over heels happy.
He has the most gorgeous eyes. You can just get lost in them. And his laugh is like the best song, and its so contagious. He has this smile, that brings you back to those Jr High school days. You know, when you had a huge crush on that boy, who was like totally out of your league, and then oone day, maybe by the lockers or maybe at the quad at lunch, and he passes you and smiles and you literally feel weak in the knees, like, church bells are ringing and all of a sudden birds are chirping(in your head, theres no actual birds...), but you get me, that feeling. When I'm with him, when I'm in his arms, its like everything in that very moment is perfect.
He is the most amazing father. I mean, I'm talking Full House Mr. Tanner style. His relationship and his love for his daughter is the most moving & endearing thing. He is intelligent and successful and motivated. He is sweet and affectionate and romantic(yes, ladiesss!!). He listens. REALLY listens. And he cares about what I have to say, and values my opinion. He opens doors in a day where chivalry is extinct. He makes me laugh even when I'm in the crappiest of moods. We have so much in common its utterly ridiculous(but in the most wonderful way) and just enough differences to balance it out. When something exciting happens, hes always the first person I want to tell. I can talk to him for hours, about anything and everything. He inspires me, he encourages me, he supports me yet he isn't afraid to put me in my place if need be. He is my biggest fan when it comes to my photography and really motivates me to pursue it and believe in myself.
He's just...amazing. And I am so lucky. So so lucky. I count my blessings everyday and its kinda like watching a fairytale unfold, and this time the princess is me.
