Thank you!!

This blog started on January 1st of this year.
It was meant to chronicle the story of Tomily and so far thats exactly what it's done.
Well a few travel posts have snuck in there but thats ok too.

Over the past few months my readers have blown me away with the amount of
love and support they show to other bloggers like myself.
This is seriously the best little piece of internet and i love it so much!!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my readers.
Whether you're family, friends or people I've never met...I love you all!!
I've been given some amazing advice from a lot of you about
staying strong while separated and that it's all worth it in the end.
I need to hear things like that...WE need to hear things like that.

Tom reads the blog and the comments, so what you write to me you're also writing to him.
He appreciates all of the love and support as much as i do.

We've only been apart one day and it's already been so rough.
But the comments you have left have helped both of us feel so much better.
So thank you!!

I also want to publicly thank my parents and Toms parents.
My parents not only opened their home to this guy, but they also opened their hearts.
Tom is a member of the family now and i want my parents to know how much we both
appreciate the love and support they have shown us.

Toms parents are just as kind hearted and are letting me stay in their home when i go to England.
I've already met them numerous times and i already feel like a member of the family.
We are so blessed to have the amazing families that we have.

And i want to thank Tom.
Oh we go...
Tom blew me away in so many ways!!

You know when i started this with him i knew he was nice and funny
and....oh right SO ATTRACTIVE and the accent didn't hurt either...
As things escalated i learned that he's also got the biggest heart I've ever seen....not literally ;)
He's my everything, my best friend and my love.
I can't remember life without him, nor do i want to!!

I want to thank Tom for taking care of me.
I'm not sure if i blogged about this or not but while on the trip
my debit card numbers were stolen and my card had to be shut off.
I had no cash and my card wouldn't work until we got back to Texas.
Right after i got off the phone and told Tom what had happened 
he simply said "Don't worry babe, I'll take care of you"
I knew that would be the case because thats just who he is.

I also want to thank him for helping me understand just how beautiful i am.
No, i'm not full of myself by any means, i do, like many women, have confidence issues.
But Tom swooped right in and insisted 
that i see myself the way he sees me...and he says i'm perfect.
Perfect was a word he used often and before him i would have never said that about myself.
But he's right and i may be a little big headed now ;)

I mean come this real life??? 
Did i really stumble upon a guy as great as this??
yea...I sure did and i couldn't be happier.

Tom is everything i knew he would be.
He's kind, hilarious and just plain amazing!!
I'm so happy that i'm on this adventure with him.

Soooo anyways....
I just want you all to know how much we appreciate your comments
whether they are left on a blog post or said to us in person.
They are so incredibly helpful especially now that we're apart for a while.
We love you all so much and can't wait to keep you up to date on 
whats happening with us while we wait to be brought together again.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Thank you for making us part of your wonderful journey together. This post is so beautiful and honest, it made me tear up. I get this warm fuzzy feeling when I read your blog; kind of like I do while reading my favourite books, or watching an old(er) Disney movie. You two are the best! I'm sending some virtual hugs your way!
