People always say that you never know someone until you live with them. When I first headed to Germany, everyone warned me about this. At that point, DJ and I had only seen each other a few times when he was home that January. But as crazy as it sounds, we already knew each other better than anyone else. Needless to say, those two months in Germany went by with no problem. Living with him was so easy and fun. It's crazy to think that was a year ago!
Being here with him this summer is a little more like real life than it was in Germany. We're not in this magical place where everything is an adventure. We're not taking amazing vacations to Amsterdam. He works, I do homework, we grocery shop, work out, relax on the couch, cook dinner together, and even apartment hunt together. Being here is a little taste of what life is going to be like in December, and I'm loving any minute of it. Everyday life with this man is perfect. He takes care of me. I take care of him. We laugh together and cry together (while we're watching sad movies and shit). We motivate and support each other. We get excited together. We get excited about our future, and it's so fun.
I've mentioned before that we're moving. DJ's lease is up and so he had to find a new place. Well, we sure did find the perfect little place. It's a duplex with a backyard. It's right across the street from a cute little park. It's really everything we could've asked for. It's the perfect place for us to start our life together in December. I'll be sure to post pictures once we move in in a little over a week. And I'll also be sharing some crafts we've been working on to decorate!
I'm so excited to move in and start to turn the place into the perfect little home for us. I keep thinking about having barbecues in the backyard, picnics in the park, and getting Frankie and raising him in this place. (Frankie is my future French Bulldog). It's going to be the perfect way to start my life with the perfect man!
It's been an amazing summer so far, just relaxing and enjoying life with him. Living with him gets better every time, and even though I really miss him when he's gone for work, the time we get to spend together is beyond perfect. I'm so blessed that I get to spend the summer here with him. I'm so grateful that he takes care of me and that I get to spend three whole months with him. I'm so lucky that I get to wake up to him in the mornings and spend my days with him. I'm thankful that he's here for me when I need him. I never thought I could be so happy, and I never thought I could be so in love.
The only real problem is that he wont go to Dairy Queen with me every night. But I mean other than that, I'm happy. ;)
