And thinking about.
And I thought it was about time that I stole his picture from his Facebook (because my camera is broken) and talk about the boy who I just like so much.
Originally all I had wanted to say was how wonderful and smart and kind and great he is (etc, etc, etc) but I will do that another time. So I'll share something else.
Two nights ago I was overwhelmed with life. With decisions (the biggest decision I'll ever make! And I am so excited to talk more about that soon!) And all the changes and the adjustments and the plans and then even the millions of other decisions that will follow.
So I did what any other girl would do, and I cried. I was happy and anxious and excited and stressed. And I cried. And all Max did was put his arms around my shoulders and when he looked me in the eyes he told me: "I will help you, and you will help me, and we will love each other."
And the way I felt after he said just those few words I will never, ever forget. I remember when my favorite next door neighbor while growing up would tell me and my little sister that the best advice she could ever give us would be to marry our best friends. I hope I'm lucky (and blessed) enough to be next.
