Gains & Losses.

We officially have moved into our OWN APARTMENT & honestly we could’nt be happier. I’m even more excited to ditch my library card…for wi-fi at our home in a couple of days FINALLY. I’m loving our new city as it is the same city we went on our 1st date, the first city we spent quality time with each other in after meeting face-to-face. Bossier City dare I say it….feels a bit like my home away from home. Everything is right here with-in 5 miles or less by car for the most part. I even have a interview lined-up. It feels like such a huge breath of air being here finally after all we have gone through in order to get here…together as a team.
As all these major changes happened…we were also hit with some heartbreaking news today: the loss of J’s dad. We are both at a loss but are definitely helping each other cope. All I can ask is to keep us in your prayers.

Keep the faith.💙

Welcome To July & Good Things!

Hello World!
Today marks 2 months since we closed the distance & life has been crazy busy. I can say it has gotten a bit more normal than at first doing our day-day routine. I finally got my liscense switched and I got a part-time job, which i’m hoping I can better manage with my school schedule.
I’m also excited that we FINALLY got approved for our apartment & am looking forward to our big move on our own in the next couple of weeks.
Overall, each day is a new adventure and gets more like “home” the longer im here. So excited for our big move into our own place, lord knows it is some thing we have both wanted for awhile.

Keep the faith,

Happy 2 year Anniversary to Us!❤💕

2 years ago today we began our journey being separated by 253 miles & no one around us believing it would actually work but US. We have faced ups & downs together, beating the odds one step at a time. Closing the distance finally on May 6, 2017. Just when I think I can’t fall more in love with you, I do. You have become my best friend and the person I love on good days & bad. I’m so proud that through whatever life has thrown at us, we have ALWAYS proved the rest of them wrong, amazing them with our strength, faith and love between eachother. I look forward to so many years together with you by my side. I love you to the moon & back my love. We have come so very far in 2 years & waking up to you today is a gift, I don’t take for granted. It’s amazing how one person can come into your life & change it for the better. Happy 2 year anniversary to us. We have gotten stronger and I’m so glad to call him mine. He is a blessing in disguise and I thank god for the day we crossed paths. I could not have imagined 2 years ago we would be here: living the closed distance life together. I love him more than the year before. We have each others hearts.

One Month & A Day.

Hello Y’all! I can’t believe it’s been one month & a day since we closed the distance. Life definitely has a way of getting real after the distance is’nt a factor. It is still an adjustment period-full of ups & downs and lots of changes. I’m still so happy to be here & can’t believe we have been a “normal couple” for a whole month.

I have been transitioning to life away from Texas. Trying to find work out here & get settled in. I finally got my address changed for the first time ever, which is exciting & new all at the same time.

I’m in the process of getting my healthcare license switched to Louisianna so that I can get some income circulating. My job search has’nt been too successful so I’m resorting to that option.

All in all closed distance life is AMAZING😍😍😍😍…& i’m even more excited that we will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary on the 12th…permanently together.

2 Weeks Since We Closed The Distance!

Today marks 2 weeks since we closed the distance & I left Texas in my rearview.😊 It’s so funny how we imagine life to be after closing the distance vs. the reality of how closing the distance actually looks. I have had my moments where I have missed home.🙁 I come from a suburbian town in Texas, while where J resides is more country living lifestyle and slowed down, so adjusting is a understatement. We have had some petty arguments, which comes with the territory of merging lives. It is’nt just like a normal visit like all the other times before, but an actual life change. It’s a huge adjustment on both out parts being under the same roof. I was homesick alot almost the whole 2 weeks, feeling very out of my element,but here recently I have been handling the change a bit better…getting settled into my new normal.
We went out today & actually purchased a wall calendar….& that is what makes the fact that i’m now not just visting, but actually starting a life without the distance with this person.🤗 We are both learning eachother & how we operate as individuals & meeting in the middle.
It’s still an adjustment period…but I would rather adjust to living life closed distance, than living life without him in my life.
I’m happy we have closed the distance 2 weeks ago & at the end of it all no matter what, i’m learning the greatest thing in life to hold on to is definitely eachother.😍💑

Since we are no longer LDR, I’m looking forward to changing the blog up soon.

Grateful.

I’m so grateful for a new week. J had the flu a majority of last week since he returned to Louisiana. Having the monthly vistor and trying to readjust to being apart again has been a bit rough on my end. The distance makes you argue over the tiniest things y’all add in the fact that I can be ultra sensitive it feels like a enotional train wreak. I’m hoping this week will be a bit more smoother and im way less emotional. I have my days where I miss him so much my heart aches. I know he is worth the rough days & the small rough patches we face apart. I can’t wait to be with him again. I’m grateful for time passing because im a week closer to when I will see him again. I’m grateful for time changing minds, healing hurts, and bringing us that much closer to the next time we are reunited. Sometimes we must be grateful, grateful for love despite ourselves.

Keep the faith & fight the distance-
