“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person”.
I am dedicating this post to the man I love. My boyfriend, my partner, my leader, my strength, my fire, the light in my life. I have to say this long-distance relationship is a massive challenge, but everything in life is a challenge and you’re only fooling yourself if you only choose to give up when something hard arises.
I really don’t know where to start when it comes to describing Kevin. He’s funny, he’s gentle, strong, and mellow and he has this energy about him that makes him stand out without even trying. Maybe its the strength that his jawline carries, maybe it’s the way his fedora matches his brogues (yes, real men wear brogues), or maybe he says the sweetest things to me and means it. Kevin was also a US Marine and I don’t know if that just adds a billion in terms of sexiness but one thing’s for sure, I’m pleased to say that I am a happy woman for being in love with a man who was honourable and courageous enough to defend his country.
Apart from attraction, Kevin changed me. Before I met him, I was a little wild and despite being quite mature for my age, he turned me into a lady and a woman. He also taught me what it really meant to be loved by someone. The kind of love shared by a man and a woman. I am so blessed to have shared that with him, and for that I love him even more for it.
I declared April OUR month as we first met in April and it will probably my favorite month out of the twelve months.
I love you, Kevin. Happy Anniversary.
We did it. <3
PS. What is it with the fashion world getting hooked on Brogues on women? Oxfords are totally fine, but Brogues? Really? If you want to look like a minstrel or a court jester, that’s fine. But do you know who wore Brogues like a boss and tapped and danced and charmed the ladies?
