Its the little things...

It’s the little things that take your breath away. Like when you go to his house for the first time and there is a note posted on the fridge with your birthday that’s 5 months away on it and he says he thought it was important so he should write it down.

It’s the little things that warm your heart. Like when you tell him how someone stole the blueberries for your breakfast out of the fridge at work and when you get home from work that night there is a little bag with blueberries waiting at the door just for you.

It’s the little things that make you know he will protect you. Like when he holds your hand and watches your every step so you don’t fall when you are walking back down the mountain after a long hike up and your still healing broken leg is getting tired.

It’s the little things that make you realize how happy you are. Like when a coworker says you haven’t stopped smiling all day and that makes you smile even more.

It’s the little things that make you feel this is something special. Like when he always holds your hand when you are in the car.

It’s the little things that amaze you. Like when after only knowing him for 2 weeks he meets your parents. And you can already tell they love him. And when you guys leave he tells you how it wasn’t weird at all meeting them so soon.

It’s the little things that fill you with excitement. Like when you get lost in a gaze looking at him and wonder “where have you been my whole life?”

Note to self:

Dear Mich,

I know you are freaking out inside about meeting up for coffee with your old roommate /ex-best friend tomorrow. I know that you wouldn’t be meeting with her if it wasn’t for the fact that both of you are going to be in your best friends wedding party together and you don’t want awkwardness for all of the upcoming events that you not only have to attend together but plan as a cohesive team together as well.

I know it kills you inside that even after two years she still didn’t call you to try to sort things out and you still had to be the one to make the call for this meeting.

I know that it tears you apart that she won’t ever fully comprehend the hurt and pain she caused you. And that even after all this time she probably still doesn’t even care.

But what you, dear Mich, need to remember is that you are in a wonderful place in your life. You have the most amazing circle of support around you. You have a great job that you look forward to going to every day. You have a wonderful new man in your life that fills every ounce of your day with sunshine. And you are stronger and more confident then you have ever been in your entire life. You are doing fantastic.

This meeting with her is something so miniscule that it can’t even touch the happiness you experience everyday. If it goes good then great, everyone is happy. If it doesn’t then great too! You know that whatever you will say will be honest and from the heart. If she doesn’t get it then that’s her own issue. You can’t control that.

Hold your head high tomorrow. Remember that everyone who picked you back up when she kicked you down two years ago are all still behind you. And the new people you have added to your life since are right there too.

Everything will be okay.

She walked into the bar.

Two friends at her side.

One of them celebrating his birthday.

The reason why they came to this bar in the first place.

He says someone he knows is also at the same bar.

The three of them walk around to find this person she has never met.

She spots a tall, handsome man across the room.

He is wearing a white collared shirt, jeans and dark framed glasses.

Something about him draws her in.

Her friend is still searching for the person he knows.

She prays he's at the same table as the guy in the glasses.

Her friend finally spots his friend...

Her heart skips a beat as he heads over in the direction of the man she's so curious about.

He's at the same table as the guy in glasses.

They get introduced and eyes lock immediately.

She is taken back by the instant attraction.

She puts her purse down on the table and pulls up a chair.

They strike up a conversation.

The rest of world fades away....

This & That Summer Recap (so far...)

Oh hey there...

I've been completely MIA from the blog world over the last 2 months because I have been insanely busy and more importantly soaking up as much summer fun I possibly can.

In short form:

- I finally got a new job and its fantastic!

- I get to walk home everyday from work for about an hour which makes me so ridiculously happy. I get to soak up the sun, I get to work on strengthening my leg (mostly my knee at this point), I get to de-stress and listen to my music in my own world after work everyday. Needless to say its brought my happiness levels up about 20 notches.

- Two of my dear friends moved away to the other side of the country. Two. With in a month. It sucks the big one because they are amazing, wonderful, loving friends and I will miss seeing them as much. But... Love Liberates so I will love them if they are here, or if they are on the other side of the world.

- I have been going to summer festivals, and swimming again, and running, and rafting, and hiking, and enjoying every possible outdoor/physical activity I can do at this point.

- I booked a few trips including one to Vegas with my family for my moms 50th bday next month.

- I fulfilled my teenage dreams but seeing NKOTBSB in concert and it was insanely fun. To the point where I lost my voice the next day from screaming of excitement.

- I've started helping my best friend plan her wedding.

- I have seen Horrible Bosses twice already... its epic. GO SEE IT NOW!!

- I have a million other things I want to blog about but I can't... some days (like today) I wish my blog was still anonymous so I could just spill it all. But in time I will...

- Also, I may have met the most special person I will ever meet in my life... more on that later...
