Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.

My life since I last blogged:
Too many tearful goodbyes, too little happy hellos, two crazy friends, one sweet proposal… And I’m officially a die-hard MILSO.

I don’t want him to go and I feel so selfish for feeling that way I just don’t want to miss him and I don’t want him to get hurt. God, this sucks.


I believe that everyone who comes into your life comes with a reason. It’s no coincidence that I have you. I don’t know if you came to love me forever, or if you have to go. But if you do go, I hope you’ll come back. I hope the reason you came into my life is to be The One to love me forever.


I have the most amazing boyfriend in the world


Today we dropped my brother off at the MTC. I cried so hard when we had to say goodbye to him.
My brother was not perfect, but he’s the best brother I have. He’s the one who taught me how to play guitar, let me drive his truck, loaned me money, took me to concerts, drove me to work, told me Danny was stupid when he hurt me, hung out with me, shared music with me. He’s always been there for me. Even if I never exactly said what was wrong, he always had a stupid joke and contagious smile to cheer me up with.
I’m going to miss him so much - I already do.
I know he is doing the right thing. He belongs there. 2 years is such a short time, I’m just worried about him. I will be everyday.
I am so very proud of him. I hope he has every ounce of strength and courage that he needs, and if not I hope he will be able to find it.
I love you Benji! I’m so proud of you.


Love isn’t perfect. It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, and every second was worth it because you did it together. When you truly care for someone, you don’t look for faults. You don’t look for answers. You don’t look for mistakes. Instead, you fight the mistakes. You accept the faults and you overlook excuses. The measure of love is when you love without measure. There are rare chances that you’ll meet the person you love and who loves you in return. So once you have it, don’t let it go. The chance may never come your way again.
