Hey everyone! I must first and foremost apologize for not blogging in so long. I’ve just been busy and then when I get all settled in at night I am just too tired to blog. I sincerely apologize.
But in better news, things are starting to come together for the wedding. I know it’s not for 6 months or so and we don’t have a set date yet because we don’t know for sure when he’ll be here. But I have a very good friend of mine making the cake for me and she as well as my best friend are helping me to pick out everything for my invitations and are going to help me hand make them! 🙂 I have another friend who is going to be our photographer. Everything is coming together nicely. I’ve found the dress I want and the shoes. Erik and I picked out the REAL wedding set he’s going to buy me once he’s here. Oh is it gorgeous. 😀 I am getting a new engagement ring, obviously not real white gold, it’s stamped .925 sterling silver but it is similar to my wedding set so I wanted to get it. Plus once I become an STNA I want to get used to how that setting and post height fit under my gloves. I do love my sterling silver engagement ring now but I wanted to get used to a different post setting. Anyways, have the wedding colours picked out, have the maid of honour and bridesmaid dressed picked out as well. It’s all going great. Have the location picked out for the ceremony and then the reception. So making good progress. 🙂 Still a bunch to do but we have time. All I know is he’ll be here within 6 months or so and then we can finally be married and start our life together as a married couple. I CAN’T WAIT! 🙂 Obviously we still have to go through the visa process and that’s what takes the 6 months or so but it will be great. Then he’ll be here with me. Finally. ❤ 🙂
In other news, I am signed up for my STNA classes. I start the 25th of this month. I am pretty excited! Lol. Already have my scrubs and my shoes so I’m set! I had to take my monroe piercing out though, I’m very sad about it. I’ve had this piercing for 4-5 years and I loved it. But once I get into the work field I don’t believe I’ll be permitted to have it so I might as well get it over with now right?
So I started my tan membership. I have tanned twice! Ahh how I missed it. I have also lost 2 more lbs. to date. So I’ve lost a total of 10 lbs. in 1 month and a week. Pretty excited about it. 🙂 Finally got a swimsuit too! It’s an awesome suit! I love it and I got a swimsuit cover-up/sundress to go with it and some sandals. 🙂 I am very happy about it all. 😀
Another piece of fantastic news, Erik got put back on his morning shifts like we both wanted so now when I start my STNA classes we will still be able to talk to each other for 4-5 hours a day. Makes me very happy! Plus morning shift is just better, it feels like we get more time that way and the day goes faster. So very happy about it!
Well all in all that’s about it for now, we’re all caught up on everything! Haha. Other than Shana stayed here with me for a week. It was awesome! 😀 I miss her face. But I will be seeing her Saturday, I’m going over to her house to go swimming so I’m pretty excited about that. Then I’m going to be stopping over at another friends house a bit later in the afternoon to go look at stuff at an arts and crafts store so we can start thinking about what we need for my invitations. But, Erik is gone to work, I’ve had breakfast, and now I’m going to post my advice and end to the post. So here goes.
Here’s my advice for the day :
Don’t let distance be the make or break decision in starting a relationship with someone. If you have true feelings for them and you truly do care enough to try and make it work, then try. You’re either going to sail far and conquer the distance or abandon ship as your boat sinks. But the benefit of trying definitely outweighs the benefit of not. The benefit of trying could lead you to the best thing in your life. Love. It could lead you to the strongest most powerful love. You could find your soul mate. You could find your everything. Like I did. Erik is my world and I didn’t even have to think before making the decision to be with him even though it was long distance. It just came naturally. It came naturally to him too. We knew we were meant to be. Not everyone is going to know that right off the bat but if you do have caring feelings for this person, then try it. Again the worst that’s going to happen is you break up, the best is you could find your soul mate. You could find the person you’re going to marry one day and you’ll be happy. So very happy. 🙂 Point is this, you’ll never know unless you try. Be daring, take the chance. I think it’s worth taking the chance if a potential lifetime of love comes out of it, right? So do it. It’s worth the possible lifetime of happiness you could receive.
So in conclusion, had a pretty awesome week or so , Erik go the shifts we wanted (I still miss him like crazy though), I get to swim in a swimsuit now (haha!), and if you’re out there contemplating starting a long distance relationship with someone you truly care about, then go for it. It could be the best decision of your life. I know mine was. Erik is the best thing to ever happen to me and I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I love him more than anything or anyone and I will forever and always. He’s my soul mate. My life. My everything. So there’s my blog for today folks, I hope you all have a wonderful day. Seeing as I didn’t post this at night before bed I can’t say goodnight but I can say something pertaining to the afternoon. So, have a Good Afternoon World. ❤
Erik my love, I just wanted to say that you’re the best most perfect man in my eyes and I love you so very much. I miss you and I can’t wait for you to get home today so I can hear your amazing voice again. I hope you’re having a good day at work and I will talk to you later on tonight. I miss you and I love you my baby, more than anything or anyone, more than all the stars in the universe, and more than life itself my love. Absolutely Forever and Always. 🙂 ❤
