I got another wonderful present from Tennessee for my birthday week. She sent me a montage of pictures and memes we’ve taken and shared from the day we “met” online.
It made me cry–not an ugly cry but the kind where tears leak out of your eyes as you are overwhelmed by the emotions pulsing through your body.
I can’t help but think that I am one of the luckiest people on the planet.
At the end of this month, we will be celebrating six months together. For my hetero friends that may not seem like very long, but in lesbian time that’s like three years. Granted the LDR aspect alters that time somewhat, but not to any real discernible degree.
We are deeply connected. There is no denying that. Not that I want to deny it. I’m thrilled by how our relationship is developing despite how hard it is to be so far apart.
I often feel reluctant to share too much because I’ve been worried about jinxing it. I thought about waiting for my birthday or the actual date when six months is official, but it just felt right today.
I think I finally feel safe enough to officially say I’m in love with this beautiful, amazing human and I’m very happy.
