Our (2017) Second Anniversary
*** Semi-cheese alert. Read at your own risk. 😛 😀 ***
It was 2 years ago today when we became BF-GF. While there are dramas once in a blue moon, it’s generally peaceful and I cannot be thankful enough.
While we live in different cities and are not together often (in fact, we are away more than we are together in a year), we make sure to text each other everyday. If not, I don’t stop bugging him about it until he gets annoyed hahaha.
While it is a challenge to arrange date nights with him because of our conflicting work schedules, it’s what makes our few date nights more special. This was hard for me at first but it’s pointless to be sulking every time I’m disappointed because I realized that when you are in a relationship, you just don’t turn your back every time you don’t like what’s happening. You must strive to work on it. And working on it is a tiring process especially if at the end of the day, you still love him anyway and still want to be with him. Eventually, I learned to not fret too much about it. And when I did, it’s as if we signed into an unwritten and invisible agreement wherein every time I’m in Baguio and he’s not busy with work, it is a MUST that we have some “us time” even if it only means him accompanying me to the terminal and spending the remaining minutes in one of the food stalls before I board the bus. Heh.
Conflicting schedules? His day off is Mondays only while mine is on weekends. And so every time I go home, there really isn’t much time for us since he has work. Plus, I don’t go home often because it’s just too tiring to be travelling often. Imagine being on the bus all weekends? I can’t, well at least now that I’m older hahahaha. Aging…pffft!
While only a few people know about us, we are not bothered and we actually want this setup. We got together late in our lives so we want to work on strengthening our relationship first. I fear that it will become complicated if too many people are involved. And I’m glad that these few people who know about us are cheering for us too. A lot of them already volunteered to be our godparents on our wedding. Oooppps. Kung maka-pressure naman ang mga ito hahaha!
While I know that I will not fully get to know him in this lifetime, he has been consistently patient with me and my bouts of bitchiness, hence we’re still together now. And I thank God for that! Hahaha!
While it has not happened yet, the end goal is to be married to each other in the future. I check with him maybe once every quarter. Yes, I do that. For me, I don’t want to waste my time and effort (and his as well) if both of us are not aligned on where we want to be someday.
We are not perfect and our relationship is not perfect. But as long as we still both want to be together, and as long as this is God’s plan for us (which I know in my heart it is), then we will be ok no matter what. Looking forward to the days ahead.
To my honey:
You are God’s greatest gift which He gave to me after losing both my parents. The timing couldn’t be more perfect.I thank God everyday for the gift of you.
Thank you for your patience.
Thank you for not being afraid of calling me out when I am out of line.
Thank you for arguing with me gently, and not just agreeing to everything I say just so I stop nagging you.
Thank you because there was no need to change much just to fit into your requirements of a relationship. Your requirements were really just simple – to love you and those you love. I hope I am fulfilling that.
Thank you because I still get to enjoy the same freedom I was enjoying when I was not yet in a relationship.
Thank you for everything that you’ve done for this relationship.
But can we have at least out of town trip please? Kasi o, ang pictures natin, yung mga puro lang tayo kumakain. Isipin mo, yun lang ang laman ng video natin sa wedding talaga?! Hahahaha! Joke! But you know that jokes are half-meant, right? Right?! 😀 😀 😀
Seriously, thank you for for being you. I love you!
Re-posting some of our pictures in sequential order as I remember it haha. 😛
And I realized that I only started posting our pictures in 2016. Waley pala masyado nung 2015. Kebs na haha. More pictures to come pa rin Hihihi.
