I'm In Love

02.29.12

I seriously don't know how to write a new blog about anything else today because my mind is completely consumed by the most amazing man I've ever met in my life. I have fallen in love. Years ago, I thought I was in love, but now I know that I was completely mistaken. I feel warm and at peace inside and yet gitty, bursting with excitement.

The most shocking thing to me is just how fast it happened. It's only been a month, but I know it's real. I didn't think it was possible to fall in love so quickly, but I feel it inside and I know he feels the same way too.

Only a month ago I had completely given up on dating. I could no longer imagine ever finding someone who fits with me, let alone someone who would love me back. After going through so many guys, each one hardly giving me a second glance, I started to think guys just didn't like girls very much. I was almost always treated with complete indifference. It was hard to be happy and confident at the same time that I was dating someone so I finally decided to just fly solo, enjoying all the great things a single life has to offer.

Now that I've fallen in love, all those bad dates feel like centuries ago. To tell you the truth, being in love feels different than I imagined, so at first I didn't even know that I was feeling it. Everything feels natural and easy with him, like this was just meant to be. I completely trust him and there's no stress; no wondering whether or not he loves me back. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world when he has his arms around me. I love his sense of humor, he's intelligent, passionate and I can talk to him for hours about anything. He's everything I've ever dreamed of and so much more. I'm completely in love and it feels completely right.

Love isn't like in the movies. It's far better than anything I've ever seen played out in a screenplay. It's so warm and intense, but at the same time it feels normal, like it's simply a part of life that I have not yet experienced. It's hard for me to believe that Heavenly Father loves me so much to bless me with such an incredible man. I don't know how I could suddenly be so lucky, but I'm not going to spend anytime questioning it. I'm going to spend every moment I can enjoying it.

I love you, Russ!
