Just over two years ago, I was single and living in a super cute little apartment outside Chicago. I dated, but hadn't actually connected with anyone in a really long time. I decided if I was going to meet someone worth having a relationship with, I needed to try something new. I signed up for eHarmony and was active for about a month when I saw a cute guy blonde guy show up on my matches. When I read through his profile I was in awe. It felt like I was reading about myself - we had so many common interests! We started chatting and found out the crazy similarities didn't stop at favorite TV shows and hobbies... our families lived in the same small town, we were both the youngest and he was the only boy and I the only girl, we shared the same life goals.
We met October 1, 2010 at Lou Malnati's (only the best pizza place in the world). As nervous as I was, when I saw him I felt at ease. We had no trouble communicating, and we ate and talked forever. After dinner we went next door to a little hole in the wall bar that we ended up closing down. We had 3 dates that first week, and we've never looked back. Two years later I look back at all we've already been through in the short time we've been together, and its amazing to me how much we have grown.
We made the decision to move to Washington for his job when we were just shy of being together a year. Moving in together, a million miles away from friends and family wasn't without its challenges, but every step we take, and every fumble too, feels like its the right one for us. He's my rock. When I feel like I'm the only one in the world that feels some way about something... like no one else could ever understand me - he does. So thank you Blaine, for being amazing and supportive, and helping me through bad times as much as you hold my hand through the good. Thank you for loving me the way I love you. Happy 2 years past and many more to come ;) <3
