It has been killing me keeping this secret from my man (and you lovely people) for 5. FREAKING. MONTHS! After our Florida trip last April I booked this flight to surprise Josh for his 25th birthday. I left around 9pm (my time) and flew all night, landing at London-Heathrow airport at 8:30am London time. Their being 5 hours ahead really worked to my advantage as the whole time I would be flying is when I’d normally be in bed and he wouldn’t be expecting to hear from me. I think I managed to top last year’s present!
It felt so surreal getting on a plane to fly to one of the most romantic countries in the world to see the most amazing man I could ever ask for. I kept thinking “is this really my life?” I feel so incredibly blessed to have such a kind and loving man to call my own, and I want to make his life as special as possible. He has shown me that I don’t have to simply write and read fairytales, but we can live one. I love him so much :).
We’ve been having a great time together visiting with his family and friends and working on his new home. It’s been so exciting going to all the home stores and doing little DIY projects together (even when we read the instructions wrong and have to improvise!). There will definitely be a lot to adjust to when I make the official move in April, but I feel at home here. I love falling asleep next to my man each night and waking up to new adventures with him each day. I can’t wait for us to start building a life together.
When will you get to see your S.O. again? 🙂
