Just in case you didn’t gather from the title – IT’S OUR ANNIVERSARY….
Now let’s play a fun game (and be sure to put your answer in the ‘comments section’ below) – Ready? How long do you think that Steven and I have been together for?
We’ve actually only been together for one year…
…and I think that answer surprises most people because we have a chemistry that you only see in the movies and don’t always believe is attainable – shit, sometimes I think I’m dreaming!
But, on December 12th, Steven asked if I was ready to be called his girlfriend and of course if I was ready to call him my boyfriend and this was a huge deal because I didn’t want to rush into anything.
When I met Steven, I was one huge ball of emotions…
…and I was slowly getting to the place of being able to trust someone that I deeply cared about with my fragile emotions.
I think Steven also had a fear, a fear of something so simple as a “title” completely changing someone. So, to be honest, I don’t think either of us necessarily wanted to be in a relationship for a while but we were constantly around each other that it would have been strange to not take that next step.
So we did, we took that step and I’m very grateful because one thing’s for sure, so much can change in such a short space of time. We have helped each other through some difficult times, started new jobs, started on new ventures and even travelled together. And after an entire year, I can wholeheartedly say that I cannot wait for the next one, and the one after that because Steven get’s me, he’s my person!
So cheers to an amazing year and many more to come…
