I'm still looking up

I'm not one to post much about my relationship with Joel, because that's just who we are as a couple- private in our thoughts and love.  I have wanted to write about us several times but the words before now just never felt right, they didn't do us justice.

A little background... Joel proposed late at night at a skate park... where we had our first date when I was 15.  And a few years before that, we were at that same park for a gift I wanted to give him.  I made him climb up the giant half-pipe with me in the dark and we held hands and I told him to look up.

I told him one of the ways I knew God was real was because of the night's sky.  Then I told him it's the same when I look at him, because when I look at him I just know love is real.

Then I gave him a ring with the words "my sky" engraved on the inside.

Today, on the way home from a baby appointment I heard Jason Mraz's song, "I won't give up" and I'm pretty sure it was made just for us.

Happy almost five years babe :)

    and i'm pretty sure we were listening it to the same time, as i was riding home from luca's appointment in columbus. i came home, downloaded it and danced with adam in the kitchen to it.
    you and me, olivia- our brains function the same, i think :)

  5. Such a beautiful post :) loved reading it.

    Oh and my GFC is being weird, but it let me follow you through it using my twitter... how cool is that?! I didn't know you could do that :)
