I never thought that 3 years ago I would have found “the one” or my soulmate, but here we are three years later and I am just as smitten as I was when we went out on our first date. Now, don’t get me wrong; our relationship is no where near perfect but it is the most healthy relationship I’ve ever been in. My heart is so full being with Marc, and being in this relationship has made me grow as an individual.
Before Marc and I met, I had started feeling comfortable with myself and genuinely in an all over good place with my health. I met Marc at a show that I wasn’t even planning on going to that night since I had worked all day; but had a friend who insisted that we go and just relax after work. Needless to say I am eternally grateful that I went because we met that night, in line after chatting a little bit and after he made me laugh I was hooked. as corny as that is haha, he was super easy to talk to. We’ve been inseparable ever since.
Our First date was so nice and I remember being so nervous since he was driving an hour to come get me; and we ultimately just stayed in the town I lived in at the time (he thought it would make better use of our time instead of spending most of our time in a car driving). We went out to eat and ended up talking like we had known each other way longer than we actually did, we talked about our families and were already making plans to see each other again. Needless to say he’s kept his promises to this day.
Marc is the epitome of selfless and is constantly supportive of me in anything that I set my mind on, and he is constantly a rock when I am dealing with my anxiety. He is my best friend who I can laugh with, act goofy with and be serious with in planning our future. We are constantly looking towards our future; and are currently working towards buying our first home. Being with Marc makes me giddy and excited and I love talking about our potential for the future.
Our relationship isn’t perfect and my anxiety definitely doesn’t make it easy that’s for sure but it definitely has made us a stronger couple; because I know I can constantly lean on him for support and he will always be there to prop me up. In the three years that we have been together, we’ve continuously grown together and are always pushing each other to be the best version of ourselves. It is so incredibly awesome to see the change in each other.
I knew I loved Marc the moment he followed through with the promises he made, every time he held me when I would have a panic attack and anytime he would tell me “Our time is coming” when we would talk about our future and getting married (which makes me giddy just thinking about it). I knew I loved him the moment I was able to lean on him for support and fall in love with him more and more every time I get a kiss in the morning when he leaves for work. I never thought it’d be possible to be so in love with someone, but being with M has proven that it definitely is.
When we had these photos taken by the amazing Madi at Cedar & Sage Photography last year it was close to our two year anniversary and they captured our love genuinely and for that I am forever grateful. He makes me giggle and makes me feel safe and comfortable and these photos are a little glimpse into our relationship. We were super lucky to have these taken for free, while Madi wanted to fill her portfolio and I obviously loved them so much that I had her do my graduation photos ( which turned out gorgeous as well!).
I look forward to our future and I really wanted to convey that in a blog post and show off this love of mine. Since it gives you all an insight to my personal life especially since I haven’t posted in quite a bit. I really hope you all love my sappy love post; and enjoy reading it just as much as I did writing it.
