Hello beautiful people!
It has been another fabulous start to the week and I am finally starting to feel as if things are looking up for me after all the life changes that have been coming my way. I have not been working at Leo Burnett these past two weeks and it’s so crazy to think about how fast this summer has gone by with me working there for the past 3 months. I was so sad to leave because I honestly really loved working there and I am so thankful for every person in the office and the countless lessons I learned while under their guidance. Best experience ever! With all that said, I am currently working on moving forward with our moving plans with Nick, just trying to get a plan together for everything that needs to happen before our big move at the end of August! This whole moving thing has had me reflect A LOT on my relationship with Nick and just how far we have come in our relationship over the past 3 1/2 years. We have both grown up so much and this move is going to be such an adventure for the two of us and I have never felt luckier. Every girl and guy deserves to be with someone who makes them happy, loved and special, which is the topic I want to talk about today!
You’re basically best friends
A few months before we started dating, Nick and I were really good friends (and still are)! That was something that was huge for me because it gave us a chance to really get to know the quirky sides of one another and gain that mutual respect for the other person. When you fall in love with the right person, everything just falls into place. You’re at each other’s side through laughter and tears, and you take comfort from each other. You’re not afraid to be silly, and you’re not afraid to be weak. You like each other’s quirks, and there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for each other!
You may argue but in a healthy way
Now, Nick and I have had our fair share of arguments, but we always seem to find a way to push through and make it out the other side stronger than ever. I know it sounds so cheesy to say that, but IT’S TRUE! Conflict in any relationship is absolutely normal, and when you are with the right person, you genuinely want to work out your differences. In your relationship, you want to feel comfortable sharing your opinions openly as well as respecting the other person’s thoughts and feelings. Learning to argue in a healthy way can take some time, but as long as you keep a calm head and focus on solutions for the two of you, then you can conquer anything!
You think long term
Every time you think of your future, you see your person there besides you. You could look 5 or 10 years in the future and see the life you want to have with this person! When you meet the right person, you are able to have those open conversations about marriage, kids or even where you want to live, it’s all-important think about these long term life changes. For myself personally, I have never felt more in sync with someone before. When both of us decided to make the big move to the East coast to work in NYC, Nick has been such a light for me to feel comfortable making such a big life move for the two of us. I am so excited about what lies ahead for our future together!
You are both okay having time apart
Being able to spend time apart and be okay, is totally okay in any relationship! I remember early on in our relationship, I thought that if we spent too much time apart, then it would cause problems for our relationship. As we have grown together, I realize that some time apart and doing our own things for a while is totally healthy! You both are individuals and you sometimes like to do things individually, which is great. Just because you are separated doesn’t mean that you don’t like spending time together. Honestly, it just makes it THAT much better when you are brought together again!
You just love being around one another
As much as you both love doing your individual things, at the end of the day you just want to come home and be with the other person. For me, there is no one else I would want to cuddle up on the couch next to at the end of a long day or make breakfast while dancing to music in the kitchen with other than Nick. Any time I get to spend with him is truly a blessing and I feel so lucky to be able to call him mine! When you are with the right person, any time you are able to spend together makes the day that much better.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this kinda lovey-dovey post and I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week! Just a heads up that there may not be a new post next week Tuesday due to lots of traveling and packing that needs to happen before the big move NEXT THURSDAY. I am super excited for this big life change and I can’t wait to bring this blog to NYC. I will talk to you all again really soon!
Sending Positive Vibes,
