Happy Anniversary

This post probably belongs in a Google doc somewhere. Oh well. Three years in a relationship and these are some of the things I have learnt about myself , my better half, and relationships in general. Honestly, this post could go on forever. So... let's get started! 

  1.  I yell a lot
  2.  J is very patient
  3.  I cry when I'm really mad. Seriously, no matter how many times I tell myself to pull it together the tears just come flooding in. I have always been this way. Even as a kid, especially with my parents. The angrier I am, the more tears. It's super annoying
  4. #3 is why I always have a pair of sunglasses on me
  5. #4 is another reason to love summer
  6. J is open to letting me do anything (thank-you), which is super awesome for someone who suffers from a great deal of wanderlust. It is a sickness really, and between the three of us my bank account suffers the most repercussions
  7. Growing up, I always loved watching crime shows (Law & Order: SVU + Criminal Minds are my two absolute favs). I never thought that I would meet another human who would love crime shows as much as me. I definitely did not think I would be lucky enough to date that human. 
  8. J always liked dogs but was never crazy about raising one. Three years later I find that he is more obsessed than I am which is saying something. I hate to break it to you, but if your significant other is not a true dog lover, it will not be worth it. Leave while you still can. 
  9. J loves wearing ties but hates shopping for them. I'd do it as a profession if anyone ever let me. I spend way too much time on thetiebar.com for someone who has never worn a tie.
  10. J loves cars more than me. I have accepted that fact. 
  11. J is a movie buff. I on the other hand watch the same 5 movies 1000000000 times. It's nice to have someone knock you into your senses and remind you that 'Bad Teacher' isn't the only movie on Netflix. 
  12.  I hate torrenting, mostly cause I feel like I never do it right. J is my personal torrenting machine. 
  13.  I yell a lot. 
  14. J is very very very patient. 
  15. It's the little things that become the big things. Always always always. Don't forget about the little things.
  16. This list can probably go on forever. 
  17. You don't need $$ for a good date. Some of the best ones involved none at all. Go explore the city kids, Mother Nature is free! 
  18. Everyone should invest in a Polaroid. Especially in our day and age where social media is running us all. Who knows when Facebook or Instagram or the next best thing will be no more. The life of a polaroid photo is controlled by you. You control it's longevity. 
  19. Thanks for keeping me grounded J.
  20.  It's important to have your own hobbies. Have a life outside of your relationship. 
  21. Dreamers and realists are essential for every successful relationship. 
  22. smiled ear to ear writing this.
  23. If you sat through this list... Shieeeeet. You either love me or you're really bored. 
There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists, well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.
— Modern Family (Episode: Punkin Chunkin)

Cheers to Modern Family for one of the truest statements ever made. Although two dreamers will soar high, they will eventually crash. With two realists neither will ever venture far into the unknown where all the magic is bound to be. Jay, thanks for being the dreamer, the realist, and the magic. x
