Today marks 35 months of being "official" with my boyfriend, fiance, best friend, love of my life, Leyland.

It took me less than 35 seconds to fall for him, 35 minutes to be sure... & less than 35 days to tell him I loved him...(well the 2nd time around). You see we originally fell for each other at quite young ages (I was 13 he was 15) See below..

But due to strict parents & life circumstances we got separated & kept apart...we didn't see or speak to each other for 10 years after that.  But God had a plan for us & we found each other again  - a little over 3 years ago....the rest is History.

I can say in all sincerity that these have been the best 35 months of my entire life. He is my dream come true & the source of so much joy in my life. I have had more than 35 dramatic/chaotic/traumatic events in my life...and had gotten used to being in the drama - in the pain & in the chaos.  I didn't realize that life could be SO different.. that one person could come along and turn life into a vacation. Through everything - the good, the bad, the ugly..everything.. Leyland & I have only grown closer. He challenges me & helps me grow, and Leyland is always there no matter what. He is love. He is my biggest Blessing & Gift from God.

I hope in 35 Months from now we are enjoying our married life & are happy as can be in our new adventure...When we are 35 Years old  I hope we can sort through all the chaos & struggles that come with having a family of our own .. I hope in 35 Years from now we have lots of grand kids & have aged gracefully - I hear going gray is quite the process! 

More than anything - I hope that I always cherish my months with him like I do now.

Thanks so much for writing this. I love you and am so grateful for who you are. You inspire me...and remind me that God truly has the perfect plan of love for each of us. And, He wants us to find what that is for right now in this moment... and sometimes he wants us to wait and trust that He also has a beautiful plan for us in the future.
I love you always - and His beautiful plan for you and Leyland fills me with joy. RB
