Today is my two-year anniversary of being with Shane.
On this day, two years ago, Shane and I took a trip to Charlottesville to climb Humpback Rock; however, it started raining while we walked, and we came back down. We spent some time sitting in a field next to the path, and just sat there, completely content with everything. After we watched the sun set, we drove back home and spent some time at a local park. I still remember laying next to him on a table, just doing nothing, when he asked me to be his girlfriend, and I remember being unable to contain my smile, and how excited I was about it.
He was someone I wasn’t sure would work out, and I definitely wasn’t sure we would fall in love together, but I think that’s what has made us so perfect. Along the way, we’ve really been able to discover all the small things about each other and our relationship that you can’t force. Things that just have to be. Our personalities are so similar, yet different enough to balance each other, and every little thing we enjoy together is another surprise.
It’s been two years, and I can’t imagine my life without him. It’s been two years and I can barely remember what it was like without him in my life. Shane has become such a big part of everything I am, I don’t know who I would be right now if I didn’t have him. These past two years have gone by in the blink of an eye, and that’s one of the best things about us: nothing has ever seemed like I’m counting down days until the end, I’m only looking forward to everything we can achieve in the future.
I wish everyone could have the chance to find this at some point in their lives. Relationships can be perfect; you shouldn’t have to settle or fight all the time or be unhappy in your relationship at all. Perfect relationships do exist; they’re real, and they’re the most amazing thing in the world.
Shane Diller is my perfect relationship, my perfect man, and the person I plan on spending the rest of my life with. He is who I want to share everything with as time passes, and who I’ve shared so much about myself with up until this point. There’s no one who knows me like he does, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
All I can keep looking forward to in my life is the day I marry him, grow old with him, and love him every single day of my life just as much as I do today.
