6 Truths about Committed Love

1. They’re your BFF, cuddle buddy, secret keeper, and partner in crime all wrapped in one *hott* package

Having one person that fulfills basically every relationship requirement is the absolute best.

2. You know what peak comfort with another human being feels like

You can be exactly who you are without jeopardizing the other person’s feelings for you. Feel free to speak your mind, belch in front of them, and share some weird thoughts and feelings, because regardless of what you say and do, this person is stuck with¬†chose you.

3. You gotta take the bad with the good

I do some really annoying things #worrywart, my boyfriend also does some (less) annoying things. But love means putting these little annoyances aside so you can enjoy all the other qualities you completely adore about the other person.

4. The two of you are probably really weird when you’re together

Being so freakishly close comes with some repercussions. Since you’re super comfortable with each other that level of comfort doesn’t always mesh well with the general public. Sometimes I catch myself doing/saying really weird things to Logan that probably aren’t acceptable in public (e.g. greeting him by meowing #sorrynotsorry).

5. You’re really excited about your future with them¬†

Talking about future jobs, dream houses, possible vacations, even kids. Yup, serious stuff comes up when you day dream about what the future holds for the two of you (I’m thinking adventures galore).

6. You know each other better than anyone else

You know their likes, dislikes, pet peeves, how to make them happy, and how to piss them off. It’s your responsibility to use that knowledge for good.

Weekend Recap Vol. 4

Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 8.25.28 AM

Another great summer weekend with great people!

* Kayla and I went to the Chicago Air and Water Show on Sunday. The show is a bunch of tiny fast jet planes doing tricks in the air. I think the best part was being able to hop in the lake and watch the show while bobbing with the tiny waves.

* Logan and I celebrate 6 YEARS together on Saturday! I’m so lucky to have grown up along side him and travel the world together. I’m excited for all the adventures our lives have in store for us!

* We made the trip up to WI this weekend for a friends wedding. It’s so fun to see our friends growing up and making big commitments like this. The wedding was close to our college town, so we were able to drive through our alma mater, talk about nostalgic feels.
