If there is anything that the cruel last six months of 2012 taught me is that love truly is all you need to be happy/live life to the fullest. I am talking about all levels of love; self-love, unending love from the Great I Am, the love of family as well as friends and your true love... Life isn't easy for me, or anyone else for that matter, but I am truly blessed to have an almost overwhelming amount of love in my life. I've always felt like I won the genetic lottery because I was born into an EXTREMELY affectionate, supportive, funny and close knit family which taught me how to freely love those outside of the families dynamic. The point of this post is to focus on one of my most rewarding sources of love : Sergio. He is my boyfriend, my closest friend, biggest fan and best friend... he gets me in a way that most people never could comprehend (even if he can be kinda clueless.) I didn't understand what people meant when they referred to someone as their 'soul mate' before I fell in love with him but I honestly do now and have no issue referring to him as my Missing Piece. I am grateful that his mother taught Sergio how to love without hesitation or be ashamed of his feelings. We go through trials together and grow closer as a pair but sometimes it's easy for me to not think about the amazing relationship between us... not because I don't appreciate him but because it feels like it he has ALWAYS my entire life been there. I can't remember life before Sergio, like life could not have existed for me without him as my other half... and I am not always the sweetest to him (Sorry) so I am making it my mission to fully enjoy our wonderful relationship (and be young kids in love in a small town )as much as possible this summer. I am starting off by making a summer list of things for us to-do. Listed below.
(Sorry for the long winded intro but sometimes the only way to verbally explain how much you love someone is to string a whole bunch of run on sentences together at midnight for all the Internet to read... Sergio, you're It. It's you.)
1. Go on an adorable picnic.
Checkered blanket, picnic basket, sundress, lemonade... the WHOLE 9 yards.
2. Kiss inside of a photo booth while getting our photo taken.
3. Take a breakfast hike to the wind caves and eat homemade granola at the top.
This is a Three parter. Wake up early. Hike.
4. Take a couples portrait with a cat themed prop...
Think hand painted cat masks.... it will be amazing.

You know the one you are. forever. singing.
