So funny how God places people into our lives … but every point of your life, there is a purpose for the friends who surround you. There may be breaks from those people or possibly stay friends for life, regardless you need them as stepping stone to figure out your place on this earth. I am surrounded by a wonderful and loving family, friends and my boyfriend … fortunately … and I can praise God for this! šŸ™‚ One of my biggest fans is my boyfriend! šŸ™‚

For those who don’t know, Kyle and I have known each other since 6th grade!!! Crazy, huh! We actually had the same homeroom! Lol! Well, nine years pass by and last fall we bumped and recognized each other! Funny that we recognized each other after so long because we all know that middle school is that AWKWARD transition! Seriously … gosh, I look back and think … why did I wear my hair like that or why did I feel like I had to wear “AMERICAN EAGLE” across my shirt? I’m sure I will grow up looking at clothing I wear now and think, why did I wear that? Fortunately, Kyle did NOT judge me from my wavy messed up hair in 6th grade and we really hit it off right away! šŸ™‚

It is SUCH a great feeling to know that you just CLICK with another person! I have never met a guy who is more caring, respectful, funny, sincere, selfless, thoughtful, loving than Kyle! šŸ™‚ I love learning from him because let’s face it … he is incredibly talented at what he does (permaculture work) and SUPER knowledgeable! Such an admirable trait … well, just one of many! I have noticed that when my friends get me talking about him, I just gush! Haha! Really, I cannot smile any bigger! Never have I ever been more confident in a relationship, but he has truly shown me how a woman should be loved. šŸ™‚

I want to wish Kyle the BEST birthday EVER! Looking forward to celebrating many more years of birthdays in the future! Happy Birthday love!!!! I love you so much! xoxo

Props to my beautiful sister for taking this photo a few months back! šŸ™‚
