October of 2011

Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Remember that one time I said Hunter took over the blog...
It's about to happen again.
I'm not feelin sorry. 

I recently discovered that there is a "see friendship" button on facebook.
I was intrigued, as I am with most mysterious things...
It took me down memory lane, which may have ended in happy tears.
October 20, 2011.
This was the first time we had seen each other since he had left for college. 
I remember the rush of excitement that overcame my senses as we embraced for the first time in only about 2 months.
(sometimes, 2 years feels like an eternity)
I remember singing the words of  "can't take my eyes off you" as I drove home that night in a blanket of fog. 
I tried my hardest to pay attention to the road, but my smiles were bigger than last year's Christmas tree and the happy tears in my eyes could have easily been mistaken as my best friend passing away.
Really though, I was on top of the world. 
Butterflies must be nocturnal because I spent much more time replaying the way he smiled at me than in dream land. 
Then I woke up to this, and I knew.
I knew my life was unfolding perfectly.
Oh, and I still do :)

"this love is meant to last forever."
(taken from this week's email. And hey Hunt, I couldn't agree Moore)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
