One Year!

This past week J. L. and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! It was wonderful! Although we both had class/work, we got done early so we could celebrate. First, J. L. took me to Dave and Busters, which is where we had our first date. :) It brought back great memories! He was SO nervous when he took me there the first time! It was so cute :)

Then for dinner we got all dressed up and he took me to the Melting Pot! I absolutely love fondue and I was so surprised and happy. During dinner we reminisced over the past year and about every thing we've been through and all of our adventures. We also discussed what we're looking forward to in the next year and set mini-goals for ourselves. 

I'm so grateful to have such a kind and loving boyfriend and I think God for him everyday!
He always teaches me, by actions and not words, to be kind and loving to everyone and is constantly growing in his love for God and for me. :)
I love the fact that he never tries to control me or limit me, but allows me the freedom to be myself and only celebrates me for it.

It's been a great year :)

I want to encourage you to celebrate the loved ones in your life today!

He sounds like a wonderful guy! Isn't it nice when God says, "Hey you think your blessed? Nope, here's a wonderful person in your life to bless you even more!"
So, I'm so glad you listen to Needtobreathe & also how in the world did I miss that you are from Nashville?! What in the world! Nashville is so far my favorite city that I have visited.

Congrats! My boy and I will (hopefully) hit a year in less than a month. Maybe I can even convince him to take me to the melting pot.
