Wanna hear something crazy? As of this week, R and I have officially been living together for an entire year!
Who remembers when we first signed our lease? And then I went crazy with the decorating? It seems like just yesterday, doesn't it? I can't believe how fast 365 days have flown.
I feel lucky that it wasn't a very hard transition to living together - I was nervous in the beginning, but we actually are quite compatible as roommates :) R had to get used to my constant singing while he was trying to watch something on TV and the steady stream of packages from my online shopping bouts, and I had to come to terms with the fact that on occasion, his closet was going to be slightly messy and there was not a damn thing I was going to be able to do about it, but you know what? It's all worth it.
It's worth it because I love coming home every day and having him greet me at the door as soon as he hears my key in the lock. It's worth it because I like having him stand next to me in the kitchen and assist me with chopping vegetables or opening stuck jars or stirring pasta sauce while we team up to get dinner ready. It's worth it to get to snuggle up on the couch and binge watch Orange Is The New Black (sidebar: we are OBSESSED). It's worth it to have someone who wakes me up with my favorite Starbucks drink sometimes and folds my laundry if I'm not home and vacuums the crumbs because he knows I hate doing it.
It's worth it because I get to live with my best friend :)
Sorry for my mushiness... I had to shout it from the rooftops. I love living with my man!
