From 7 months to 7 days!!

The cool thing about a blog is that years from now I'll be able to
sit down and read about my past and have fond memories of the things that happened.

A blog is basically the online version of a journal that we all wanted to have
but never found the time to actually write in it daily.
For some reason typing is easier!!

It's exciting that i'll have a unique way to look back
at what my world was like at 22.

But what is probably most exciting is that i started
this blog at the PERFECT time.

This story, or fairytale {as some of you amazing ladies call it}
really started movin' and groovin' when i started this blog.
Which was...6 months ago.

6 months ago I had just started regularly skyping Tom.
That's also when i started talking about Tom to my friends and family.

It's fun to go back and read about stuff like our 6th skate {Skype Date}
and how exciting it all was {and still is}

To see how my posts from January read differently from my posts today.
I think i've grown as a Blogger, and i've become mushier as a girlfriend ;)

What's even better is that you the reader can
read about my story from the very beginning.
So if you're new...start from my Meet Tom post and go from there.

I guess i'm just a bit obsessed with what's coming.
And let's be honest, who wouldn't be ;)

Tom will be here exactly one week from today.
This is HUGE in comparison to January 1st of this year
when i didn't even know he would be coming to America.

We've been counting down for weeks....months even
and finally the time is upon us.

It's a little unreal.
People still ask if i'm getting nervous.
Tom said they ask him the same thing.

I'm not sure people understand us yet.
Understand who we are when we're together.
Which is understandable as they've never actually seen us together ;)
The best way to define it is Best Friends.
And friends is where we started, we've just been lucky enough to
hold on to that foundation of our relationship.

Obviously he's coming as my boyfriend too,
but i literally feel like i'm waiting on my best friend,
the guy who makes me laugh, and who thinks some of my
inappropriate jokes are hilarious...

so am i nervous?? Nope :)
I couldn't be less nervous if i tried.
I'm as chill as a popsicle on a hot summers day.

Next Wednesday people..



  1. I've been following your blog since before Tom was coming to visit... So this is very exciting just as a blog reader! My blog inadvertently chronicles my relationship with my boyfriend. Completely coincidentally, I started it the morning after our first date. I had no idea he would become a boyfriend, instead of just one of my many summer flirtations.

    Can't wait to read all about Tom's visit!

    1. Yea, you've been an amazing follower from the beginning and i REALLY appreciate all of the kind words you've left me :) Your blog is quite similar, with the timing and all, relationships are an exciting thing to write about, we're pretty lucky ladies :)

  2. Somehow I found your blog and when I first started reading it I rolled my eyes, thinking blah of course she's dating a hot British man...totally normal (eye roll). But I kept reading and now I am extremely excited for you and Tom! Your story is cute and I am happy for you! I am excited to keep reading and I am excited for you guys to hug!

    1. hahaha that's hilarious!! Aww i'm glad you are enjoying it, i think i would have rolled my eyes too though to be honest ;) Thanks so much girl, i can't wait to share more with everyone :)
      I'm excited for a hug too!! haha :)

  3. This is soo cute!!

    I've mentioned you on my blog under favourite reads :)
