just a few words on the man i love. and what it's all about
(or is hokey pokey what it's all about?)
lately i've been good about writing down things about ben that have popped into my head. things that i love. appreciate. things that keep me/us going.
i especially see these great things when we travel because we're together all-day-everyday. (and then when we get back from traveling i get super bummed because we have to be away from each other and i'm not even kidding about that)
together we learn everyday. something new. or something we already knew that just becomes even more true. we are young. under-appreciated. measured by stats and not talent. it is emily and ben against the world.
at least that's what i've been feeling for us lately.
i find so much comfort in my friendship with ben. our friendship takes work. it's the best one i have.
i love him for his patience with me.
isn't it funny how sometimes you love someone because of how they are with you. so really you are just looking to be accepted and loved in return for the love that you have for them for loving you?
and we didn't even get into one travel fight (i mean, those are inevitable right? especially for someone like me who gets high travelstress).
