It has been such a long time since I blogged which is silly because now is the time that I should be blogging the most!!
I have soooooo many new, wonderful, fun, beautiful things going on in my life right now that I should be documenting it all!!!
But I suck and have been too busy soaking in every last minute of it all that I haven't taken the time to do anything but just enjoy myself and the people around me.
Instead of talking about the last however many months, I'll just talk about the two most exciting things that have happened to me since I last posted!
And they are:
I am going to be an aunt...twice!!!
My sister is pregnant and due on Oct. 8th.
She and her husband aren't finding out what they're having so I won't know until its born if I'll have a niece or a nephew.
And my other "sister"/best friend, Stephanie, is pregnant as well and is due Oct. 18th.
She and Ravi did find out the sex and they're having a boy!!
So at least I know I'll have one nephew.
My life is going to be filled with all the things babies in the next couple months and I'm totally ok with that!
I love planning parties, buying gifts and spending time with wonderful people so its perfect that they're having their babies so close together!!
There are lots of other pregnant ladies in my life right now or ladies that have had babies recently and while I am not ready at this second to have one myself, it makes me think about how wonderful it will be when I am ready that I'll have so many amazing people and babies around to share it all with!!
I fell ridiculously, crazy, stupidly, wonderfully in love with this handsome fellow, Luke!!!!
We've been friends for 6 years and it seems like us dating has always been on the verge of happening, so when it finally did in May, it just took my breath away!
I don't think I've caught it yet or will anytime soon!!
Things have been on the go since our first date and while we'd both like to relax and have time to ourselves, its been soooooo amazing experiencing so many new things with him.
He lives an hour away in Cincinnati but we've made it work wonderfully and I get to see a city I've spent lots of time in but never really explored and I get to explore it with him.
And when we're in Dayton, I get to experience my own city like its a totally new place.
Doing everything with him is like doing it for the first time.
Places take on new meanings, inside jokes are formed, little details of something he said or how he looked are etched in my brain and I'll remember then each time we visit that place or hear a certain song or eat a certain food.
I could gush about him non stop, about how talented and creative he is.
How sweet and kind and giving he is.
How much he loves his friends and family and Monty, ugh it melts my heart!
He is the most genuinely beautiful person, inside and out.
I feel like a better person just being with him.
Bottom line-he makes my heart so incredibly full that sometimes, I swear I can feel it spilling over.
