People look at me strange when I tell them that my expactations in life are ever changing. I love to plan 5 steps ahead and I try to plan for every possible outcome. Might seem crazy, but I like to know what every decision I make, could mean for me in the long run.
Well, my plans changed.
I grew up wanting to go on all sorts of adventures, travel to all sorts of new places, meet all sorts of people and just live the dream. Needless to say I'm 23 and that hasn't happened yet, and I no longer think that it will. I'm not giving up on the dreams I had (at least I don't feel like I am) but rather I'm forging new dreams everyday.
Remember that guy I mentioned over a year ago in one of my last posts? Well he turned out to be the one for me and we are getting married in the summer. As big and grand as childhood me's adventures seemed, they're nothing compared to planning my life with this man.
I used to think that marrying a guy meant dinner dates, going out to all sorts of events together and tearing up the town showing him off. But that's not how it works.
Let me tell you about our time together this last week alone. Most of our hang out time has consisted of snuggling on a couch beside a fireplace either taking a nap (today) or watching Spongebob on Netflix with his youngest sibling (all week).
It sounds silly but as I looked around today at the situation I realized just how domestic we really are. And I love it!
I never would have imagined that taking a nap on a couch with someone or watching cartoons, would ever give me such a boost of joy. It feels like a more satisfying adventure than anything else I've ever dreamed of. It's such a small thing but it fills my heart with unbelievable warmth.
I love my litrle adventure, and I look forward to the many more to come.
