Sorry for gushing. :P
We had two really great nights together this week. I spent the night with him on Sunday, even though I had a final exam at 9 am the next day. It was totally fine, because I got a lot of studying done in his quiet room. He helped me study before going to bed and made me feel relaxed. I always feel better when I know he is next to me… Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and he will roll over and place his strong arm around me. At this point, I’m always overwhelmed by something that isn’t simply happiness, but rather pure bliss…and I feel as though I am the luckiest girl ever.
He also made me a mini loaf of his amazing banana bread for breakfast the next morning. Sooo good!
Last night I spent the night at his place again, which is always so pleasant. Once my final exams were all done, I really just wanted to relax and spend time with him more than anything. We had a really great night. ;)
I woke up in the morning to breakfast in bed - pancakes and a strawberry smoothie! This was around 7 am; he needed to eat early enough to go for a 14 mile run around 9 am. I was so exhausted - I ate my pancakes, which were delicious, and then immediately passed out in his bed for a couple more hours.
The point is, he is quite amazing, and I don’t know how I got so lucky. When he was talking to me about physiology and the heart before my exam, I couldn’t help but just stare at him in disbelief. All of the sudden I was completely bewildered by the fact that I was really dating him - this handsome, intelligent, loving guy was all mine.
Does that ever happen to anyone? You have a moment where you step outside of yourself and look at your present life and go - wait, is this real right now? It was such a strange sensation, but it really helped me appreciate things so much more.
