It hasn’t been easy. Getting to this point. But I’m a gloriuos mixture of emotions that we’re here. I’m sure there are still things to work on in the relationship, but the way things are going they can only get better.
The evening went off without a hitch. I was ready on time and I’m sure he was happy about that. He was on time and naturally I was happy about that. Everything was running smoothly until of course I admitted that I didn’t think he had gotten me a present. I was honestly fine with it because we had agreed not to buy anything lavish anyway and then I didn’t think he would have time to get me a present because he’s been busy studying for his exams coming up at the beginning of September.
Anyway, luckily it didn’t offend him and we got into his car and he opened his present. He loved the cap I got him. And then he said, “Don’t get mad at me ok,” And all I was thinking was, “why would I be mad? I totally wasn’t expecting anything and it’s ok because you have been absolutely amazing to me.” But then before I could get anything other than, “It’s ok honey” he quickly followed it with, “but look under your seat.”
And there it was, a little green gift bag. My heartbeat quickened and I couldn’t hold back a smile. Once I opened the box, I almost cried. It’s just so beautiful. I still get a little choked everytime I think about it.
Of course that was the icing on the cake. The dinner, which I had been looking forward to all day, was amazing. I love talking to him and spending time with him. And I’m so glad he does too.
Happy Anniversary baby!
