The best two years

Two years ago yesterday Boyfriend and I had a conversation that went like this:

B: "You know, I don't think I've made it official"

M: "What?"

B: "Us. I think I just assumed that we were official and didn't even think to ask"

M: "True. You didn't ever ask"

B: "Well, let's take care of that then. Amanda, will you be my girlfriend?"

M: "Yes" (while my stomach was churning with butterflies and I was blushing)

And then two days later he left a crying girl at the airport to go back to Texas until he could figure out when to move up here

It's been a rough two years and a happy two years

Two years of trying to figure each other out

Two years of trying to have an individual identity while having a relationship

Two years of me learning to get over my issues towards past boys in my life and to not take it out on Boyfriend

Two years of me getting annoyed over every little thing and not talking to Boyfriend for a period of time

(I did eventually get over that, fyi...I don't do that anymore)

Two years of me learning that I don't like going to bed angry with him (even if it is in different beds at different houses)

Two years of us going to bed in different beds and different houses...

Two years of him serving me

Two years of him loving me no matter what I put him through

(Boyfriend wants me to say that you should think of him as a dog...loving me unconditionally like a dog loves his master...I refused to compare him to a dog until he wouldn't stop "woofing" at I did to silence he licks my arm...oh good gravy)

Two years of us growing closer together and strengthening the bond that we have

Two years of us helping each other become the best versions of ourselves

Two years of never knowing what to get each other for gifts (that was Boyfriend's) (oh, and by the way? he's retarded to shop for. just an fyi)

Two years of him telling me he loves me every day

Two years of him telling me I'm beautiful every day (even when I don't believe it)

Two years of him telling me I'm silly when I don't believe it

Two years of him holding my hand wherever we are

Two years filled with wonderful adventures

And two years that will hopefully turn into forever

I do love that Boyfriend of mine

And I happen to think I am the luckiest girl in the world that he picked me and has stuck with me through thick and thin

I love you Boyfriend!!

(you may enlargen the picture if you like)

Aww happy two years to you guys! For some reason I thought you guys were together for longer. Probably because of how well you two seem to go together.

Yay! I like Boyfriend; he is a sweet man. And I agree with you on the present thing--boys are soo hard to shop for! said...

You two are so sweet. I love that he moved across state lines to be with you. That's true love.

Aw, I cannot believe it's been two years already!! That Boyfriend, I think he's good for you. I approve, and you may keep him. (What? A little late for my blessing? Whatever.) ;)
