Love Is... (Two-Year Anniversary Edition)

I remember when I first wrote about Beau becoming my boyfriend.

I fought tooth and nail against being in a long-distance relationship. I wanted to be single, damn it! Spend time focusing on me! Explore my blossoming sexuality that I had suppressed for so long in the face of southern conservatism.

But I couldn't help it. I knew there was something wrong with me when I stopped wanting to make out with other people, a feeling I discovered after our first skype date, ten days after I had said good-bye to him my last night in the Midwest. We started talking more and more and more until I realized I was falling in love with him. A few weeks later, he asked me to be his girlfriend, and, as they say, the rest is history. 
I sometimes still feeling like the teenage girl who had never been kissed and who had never had a boyfriend. It's hard for me to believe that I actually found someone who loves me as much as I love him.
I never really believed that I needed a man to complete me. I've always felt like a complete person, but when I was single, I sometimes yearned for something more.
That something more turned out to be unconditional love.
Beau loves me for who I am. 
I have Crohn's Disease. I ruin movies by pointing out all the sexist plot points. I sob uncontrollably if I have to talk about being sexually assaulted. I never shut up about France. I'm bisexual. I like to stay up late at night and sleep in the next morning.
I'm far from perfect. I have major flaws.

And yet, despite it all, Beau still loves me.

I am grateful every single day to have found someone who accepts me for who I am. Someone who encourages me to be better, but still be me.

Happy two-year anniversary, my love. ♥


  1. Aaaaw. Happy anniversary to you two! You're so sweet together!

  2. Happy anniversary to you and Beau. You are my favourite blogging couple because you seem the most real and caring and I appreciate the dynamic that you two seem to have. x
