Stephen and I have been together for three years today! We’re not together today (long distance is fun) but we will be together in Jamaica this weekend! I’m so excited.
Since we can’t be in the same city today, I’m reminiscing on the past three years.
Stephen and I met on a blind date. I had a sorority party where you had to bring two dates. I was on duty that night (which is code for sober and babysitting those who were not). I was planning on going stag so I could go, babysit and leave, however the Greek Gods had other plans.
A few hours before my pre-game (yes, I still threw a pre-game even though I was sober and on duty…judge me) a friend, who was going with a girl coming to my pregame, called and asked if I was seriously not taking anyone to this party would I mind bringing two of his friends so they could get on the guest list?
One of my dates was Stephen.
He was a perfect last-minute blind date. He was attentive, polite, and (after my on-duty shift was over) proved to be an excellent dancer and introduced me to dirty Coronas. If that isn’t the beginning of love, I don’t know what is.
We dated casually for a month, until my birthday, when I told him I didn’t want to see other people and we finally took our first picture with our little baby faces. I think what really sold me though, was the fact that my birthday party was themed “Throw Some Glitter Make It Rain” and he tolerated me while I threw glitter on the way to the bars.
So then we were Fabo official and pranced all over campus being adorable for the next year.
Oh and surprise I was a ginger for a majority of that year….
As we were getting close to my graduation, we had the talk about whether we would stay together or not because it would be almost two years that we would be apart. I loved him too much to let him go (and I hope he feels the same because we’re still together) so we agreed to do long distance.
He’s perfect. I love every minute we’re together and miss him terribly when we’re not. I can’t believe after all this time he still wants to be with me.
I’m a lucky girl, indeed.
