The first of many messages exchanged.
It's crazy looking back on the way we used to talk, and how much comfortable our conversations are now. I used to say "haha" at least once every message. I'm annoying.
Since then, there have been many firsts in our relationship, and its been such an exciting time for us.
I remember the first time he told me he wanted to kiss me. His text said, "Just so you know, I'm probably going to kiss you when I come home" Or something along those lines. I definitely did a happy dance around my room for like an hour.
We shared our first kiss at the airport. The first of many many kisses. My last first kiss.
We had our first In-N-Out Burger date the next day, which if you know me, is a big deal because I'm a
little bit majorly obsessed with it.
We began talking in November and he came home in January. We spent the month together and then he headed back to Germany. When he left, we both knew that we were in love, but we hadn't said it yet. We'd both made our feelings pretty clear by dropping some
subtle pretty obvious hints. We wanted to wait until May, when I was going to visit him, to actually say it though. We both wanted it to be in person, not over the phone for the first time.
But damn that was hard.
One day (March 11) we were Skyping. His internet really sucked, so there were a lot of times that I could hear what he was saying. He said something but as usual I couldn't hear him so I just ignored it. When we hung up, I got a text that said, "Babe did I tell you I love you?!" Except he used emojis instead of the words because we hadn't said that yet. I was confused. Apparently, when we were Skyping it accidentally slipped out and he was so embarrassed. I was excited, and so later that night when we were Skyping again, he said it for real. I remember hearing those words leave his mouth for the first time and the way it made me feel. It was amazing. I still get butterflies when I hear him tell me he loves me!
First message, first kiss, first Double Double, and our first "I love you." I also got to experience my first trip to Europe (our first trip together), and my first time being truly in love. It's amazing looking back and seeing how much we've grown as a couple and how strong our relationship is now! Life works in mysterious ways, and everything happens for a reason. I never imagined that one conversation via Facebook would lead to the first of so many amazing moments that I would share with the man of my dreams. The man I'm going to marry.
