It all started back in the spring of Actually, this story goes back even further than It goes back to , when I was scrolling through the tv guide one Sunday night and came across a show called The Tudors. Although it most definitely was not a documentary, I still got incredibly hooked and looked forward to every season the next three years. I would tweet every Sunday night that I was about to settle in and watch The Tudors. But not in a creepy way!
Thinking it was a mistake, I checked to see if it was the real T following me on Twitter. I was very confused! It took me two weeks to follow him back. Shortly after I returned the follow, I received a sweet message from him basically saying hello and that he was not a creeper. We then would tweet comments back and forth once in a while here and there for a couple of months. I lived with my father in Northern California for a while to get some father-daughter time before I officially moved on my own to Los Angeles.
By this time, T and I had been occasionally tweeting. One night, we started chatting a bit more via direct message and the next day he suggested the next time we were both in LA we should meet up. A few weeks later, we were both scheduled to be in LA.
We arranged to meet on the first night I arrived. Guys, I cannot remember the last time I was that nervous. The butterflies were in full force. I will never forget the first time I saw him and I will never forget how hot and red my cheeks felt as I smiled.
And the rest is history. Five years and two cats later, we are still the same silly and lovey couple we have been since the beginning. I still get butterflies when I see him, whether it be when he comes home from set or I return home after a trip away. That dorky smile still makes me weak at the knees, and I would do anything, literally anything, just to hear his laugh. When I was a little girl I would dream about being in love with someone, as most little girls do, and this is exactly what I had envisioned only reality so far has exceeded those dreams.
I am so happy I found someone who makes my heart feel full and pure. Photo by Travis Stanton.
