Falling in love (again) is (still) hard on the knees

To all those who feel the urge to hurl at romance, a word of warning, do not read any further.

As S.O. and I approach our eight year landmark tomorrow, I feel quite reflective at the moment. Thinking back on our year apart, I know we both have grown in different ways. Sure, we had the long distance thing going on, but it is easier since we are now both in the same country. It feels as if I am getting to know him again. And that means falling in love yet again. It makes me feel rather light headed and light footed at times. You know, giddy and giggly and all those horribly girly attributes.

Sure we had our awkward moments when I just returned from London. And yes, we will have more awkward moments and further challenges. But more than ever before, I feel there is hope. And I have both of us as individuals and in the relationship.

To my S.O. thank you for the past eight years! Our life together has been light and laughter and love...except when you make me angry enough to throw you out of a window of a 10 storey building. ;)

Wow congrats!

Weird, today is my BF and my 9 year anniversary. We spent 15 months apart ( actually even more but I lost count) while he went off to Antarctica years ago. People told me to break up with him and get on with my life. I could not understand that! Why was he not going to be a part of my life in the future!

I wonder, did people ever say that to you?

Awesome blog layout by the way :)

Thanks Po. Congrats to you guys too! have some magical celebrations!

Before I left, most people asked me why I was leaving instead of getting married. blech... then when we still maintained the relationship, many an eye brow were raised. and since i loved london so, people assumed i would stay. but like you, i do not want a future without him.
