The Little Things

I was sitting here tonight having my nightly chat with my BFF Erin and watching Letters To Juliet and we both were on the subject of love. We are both getting ready to have homecomings with our loves and it brought on a talk about the little things we are both looking forward to. If you read my previous blog you'll know I'm very excited about holding my boyfriends hand. To me, its the little things that give a relationship its most special memories.

It's about those simple things. A text to say I'm thinking about you. An I love you out the blue. Sitting on the couch watching TV and not even having to say a word to each other. Passing notes in the hallway in between classes. Exchanging that look and knowing exactly what the other person is thinking.

When I look back on the past relationship that boyfriend and I had a lot of memories come back. But some of the strongest are of those little moments. Our prom photographer captured a photo of us. It's of our backs and I'm sitting in boyfriends lap looking at him and I have this huge smile on my face. This perfect stranger captured one of the best memories I have and to this day ten years later I can still tell you exactly how I felt at that moment. It's one of the few moments in my life I remember feeling truly loved.

Whenever we were together we were constantly close. We were either holding hands or he'd have his arm draped around my shoulders in that casual way. It was never anything forced or thought about or over analyzed. It just happened whenever we were together. I remember riding in his '88 Camaro snuggled in his camo jacket with his hand on my thigh and if I close my eyes I can still feel it and remember the smells and exactly how it felt. Those little moments are forever etched in my memory and I'm grateful for it.

Today I was at work stressing about trying to get everything done and right in the middle of all the madness my phone beeped and I looked down and it was from boyfriend and all it said was "I love you Angie". Even though we are 3000 miles and two time zones apart it was like he knew that was exactly what I needed to hear at that very moment. He calms me in a way no one has ever been able to do. Its the little things like that simple text that can absolutely make my whole day.

I can't wait for the next two weeks to fly by so I can experience the little things with him again. Because at the end of the day, I would rather fight with him than make love with anyone else.
