One week from today, from RIGHT NOW, my long distance relationship of over a year will come to an end, as boyf and I will be officially living together. I am so excited I could scream! In 7 days (168 hours) I will be driving away from my Virginia family and friends with my car all packed up to the brim, Jackson on my lap, hitting I-95 to Philadelphia to my family and friends up North. It will be a beautiful thing, but I will truly miss those I am leaving behind.
Obviously my family in Virginia is irreplaceable, and it has been great seeing them everyday for the past year, but right now my heart is up in Philadelphia and that is where I want to be. It will also be hard leaving my best friends here in Virginia. I have known some of them since first grade (the bride) and highschool (Mich). I will be rough being without my best girls because I have loved being in the area with them this past year. I am glad I got to spend that extra time down here, and I know we will keep in touch and there will be lots of visiting and road trips! I also have a great set of friends up in Philadelphia (you know who you all are!) so I know I won’t be up there all alone.
Boyf and I have been together almost 4 years now, and while this past year has been difficult for both of us, on many levels, I think it has made us stronger as a couple. We have proved over and over again how committed we are to this relationship by making that rough drive on Friday evenings, and then sitting in traffic on Sunday afternoon. Our entire life this past year has revolved around going up and down to visit each other every weekend. Only seeing each other for barely 2 days a week hasn’t been enough for me. I want more. I want to have dinner together during the week, and sit and watch movies together after a long day at work, and just relax together on the weekends without a 2 hour drive (which with traffic could easily turn into a 4 hour drive) looming over both our heads. It’s the little things in life that make all the difference. I am so excited for this next chapter in my life and I look forward to the future with an open heart and mind. I am ready for what comes next!
