I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!
You may have noticed that I’ve been a little MIA on the Wednesday Wrap Up front… and that’s because there’s been something important I’ve been wanting to share but I haven’t been able to!
I mean really, the title just gives everything away. No surprises here. But today makes exactly one week that I’ve had a boyfriend! Wednesday’s have kind of turned into date days, so clearly I’ve been a little busy ;)
Chris and I met online just over a month ago. He sent me a Facebook message, and we have texted, called, and FaceTimed pretty much all day, every single day, since then! He lives just 2 hours away, and we finally had our first date on May 10th. We spent 10 hours together, and didn’t get tired of each other once! It was pretty amazing :) Our second date was just last week, May 17th, and that’s the day he asked me to be his girlfriend.
We decided to spend most of the day hiking, so I took him to one of my favorite spots, Bearfence. It was a very hot and sunny day, so we found a cool and shady spot underneath some rocks to sit and talk for a little. A ‘little’ turned into over an hour, but I am absolutely loving getting to know him more and more. While we were under the rocks, he pulled out a poem that he had written just for me, and at the end it said “Emily Sacra, can I please make you mine?”. I keep the poem on my desk and I probably read it at least 4 times a day ;)
I could say lots about Chris… He’s tall, handsome, strong, and his profile picture is him running a Spartan race. I mean, come on. He’s literally jumping over fire. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t super curious about him after I saw that ;) But those aren’t the important things. He knows what he wants out of life, and he pursues me tirelessly. He is so hardworking and dedicated to his business. He seriously treats me like a princess every single day, and he makes sure to tell me how much of a priority I am – and not only tell me, he shows me! He cares for me by trying his best to make sure I go to bed at a decent hour, which hardly ever happens (in his defense, I’m a little sassy and just refuse to fall asleep), because he knows I’ll be too tired to get up and read my Bible in the morning. He stays on the phone with me when I drive home from weddings because he knows how sleepy I get. He tells me I’m beautiful when I’m not wearing makeup and haven’t brushed my hair. He opens car doors for me, he understands my love of dogs, and he doesn’t judge me for my OCD habits. All my weird little quirks don’t push him away (don’t ask me how, I have no idea), and he gives me reason after reason to be thankful that he’s my boyfriend.
Today is another date day, and I am just so excited! Each one keeps getting better than the last. I feel so blessed to be getting this opportunity with him, and sometimes I still can’t believe that I get to be his girlfriend! Now that it’s all out there, you’ll be hearing a lot more about this guy named Chris ;)
