I love getting to spend a little time each weekend to reflect on the past week and the things that have been happening in mine and Adam's lives. It usually happens as I am in the bath and Adam is playing around with his fantasy football team, but this Sunday I had a whole day to myself. For some reason this past week I have felt so nostalgic and I can't comprehend why or what is making me feel this way, but I love it. 
 





Sometimes I wish people could see in our everyday life. I wish they could see and feel the bond that has inevitably changed my life and has help me become the person that I truly love being and love continuing to become. Because then it would be easier to understand what it is that really makes this a fairytale for me.

Before I met Adam, I am not really sure where I was going (besides to work every night at a restaurant). Of course like most 21 year old girls I had dreams and things that really made me feel hopeful, but I also had ghosts, (but, if you're anything like me, which I hope you are if you are reading this, you had them too). When I met Adam, there were so many things that were beginning to look up in my life and so many things that I was still learning. Obviously, I am no genius, especially because I just had to use spell check on that word, but I knew then that I was not ready to ruin this relationship by starting it so quickly. Adam, though he still had growing up to do himself always saw me in the best light and knew that when the time was right we would marry... even if he had just heard me say "I don't think we should date right now, trust me". He would kindly say, okay Shelbi, but do you want to go to dinner tomorrow night? ...and from there we would start again. It is so crazy to see how much we are growing and how much our lives are shaping into the lives that we talk about for the "future", and it is so great to see it happening now as if we are living in our future.







I don't think I really ever express my thanks enough, to anyone. So that's what Sunday's are for, to let you know I am thankful... Today, I am especially thankful for A. For accepting all of the major crazy parts of me, the crazy neurotic side, the bipolar side, the side that is CONSTANTLY complaining about something, and the side that is consistently asking for a glass of water with 5 ice cubes. I know that I can be high-maintenance, and I know I am a trip. So I think I owe you a  H U G E thank you. I should learn to be more patient with you and learn to love football a little more.

So as I sit here staring at the ring that sits on my finger, I can't help but be thankful.




I would love to know what you're thankful for, keep me posted.

Sincerely, Shelbi
