first of all... i am officially done with school. i don't graduate until saturday... but tonight i did my final presentation and i can't even believe the thought of not having homework. i feel so good.
secondly... i am pretty sure that i have the best boyfriend in the world.
everything has been perfect. i can't even explain it, i don't want to sound so sentimental but i'll just say i've never felt like this in my entire life. i'm so happy. he
makes me so happy.
i went on a whim and invited him to christine's wedding, which is in amelia island, FL at the end of the month. i figured it was pretty much going on a limb as we haven't known each other all that long and well, it's across the country. and it looked like things weren't going to work out. flights were expensive, etc etc etc.
last night he came over and asked me if i wanted my graduation present. graduation present? i have not even graduated yet! i told him he did not
need to get me anything... and he responded, "well, it's something you need." finally, after going back and forth a few times, i said i would open it.
i opened it, and here's what i found.
funny story about this... i have been saying for awhile how i want to learn how to cook a turkey. random, i know... but i just feel like i know how to cook a lot of things and not a turkey?
after further googling, i found out that you need to have a meat thermometer? i was like "a meat thermometer, who has one of those??"
and so, i thought it was clever, thought it was cute that he remembered, and i laughed.
then i opened my card.
it's one of those song cards from hallmark... and i listened to the song, and i thanked him and i was about to put it back in the envelope... and he asked me "do you ever play with these cards, and see how the music works?" and i said "what?" and then he showed me the middle of the card where you can do that... i started to play with it and he said "wait, is something in there?" (the piece of paper in the picture was not sticking out that much at the time) and i looked... and...
yes, he booked his flight to florida. without telling me. and talked to christine and submitted his informal RSVP to the wedding.
i'm still in shock and i feel like this is all surreal. i have never known someone so thoughtful in my entire life... and i feel like last night was a dream. i know that all sounds so sappy and silly, but it's really how i feel.
i'm still waiting for someone to wake me up.
and i am so excited to spend a weekend in florida with my favorite guy.
i'm so lucky.
best graduation ever.
