Eric Church:I can still hear the sound of you saying "don't go."
Me and Eric Church (but mostly me):WHEN I THINK ABOUT YOUUU I THINK ABOUT SEVENTEEEN I THINK ABOUT MY OLD JEEP I THINK ABOUT THE STARS IN THE SKY FUNNY HOW A MELODY SOUNDS LIKE A MEMORY LIKE A SOUNDTRACK TO A JULY SATURDAY NIGHT
Okay y’all, this was way too much of a challenge for me to keep up with, so I’m just doing the rest of ‘em now.
Day 10: Favourite thing about him/her?
I absolutely love that he is always himself with me. We are probably the two weirdest people when you get us together, but we are always having fun & we really know each other so well.
Day 11: Pick one thing you miss (I know there are 19238923842039402394 things) and describe it in detail.
I really miss talking to him. We used to stay up for hours just talking about anything. It’s not so easy to keep up for two years & over the phone, but those conversations are the best.
Day 12: How would you define love?
I think love is sharing all aspects of yourself with the other person & loving each other for everything they are, with everything you have. Love has to be unconditional: loving each other despite all of your flaws and regardless of circumstance.
Day 13: What do you think is the hardest thing about distance?
The hardest thing for me is trying not to be too needy. I get insecure sometimes, especially when we aren’t together much. It’s hard not to worry, which makes me want reassurance. I can be too needy for my own good. Typical girl… I know.
Day 14: Describe a moment you had with him/her last time you were together. (If you haven’t met, describe how the perfect moment would be)
The first time we said I love you was the first thing that came to my mind. He asked me to be his girlfriend the night before we had to go back to different schools & we couldn’t see each other but once during the first five or six months. He came to visit me over his spring break & we were cuddling in my bed when he had something to tell me. I immediately thought he might tell me he loved me, but I wasn’t sure, cause we had only been dating for about two months. He told me: “I really like you.” Okay, cool. Then he said, “No, I mean that I’m really starting to like you a lot.” & at this point I was annoyed at him telling me everything I already knew. Then he said he loved me. It was such a good feeling & a perfect weekend.
Day 15: Favourite love (LDR or not) song?
I really love God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton. Cheesy, I know, but I never imagined ending up with him. It was not in my plans, but I know it was part of God’s plans for us.
I also really like Love Your Love the Most by Eric Church. I love me a good country boy & I’m not really a sappy person. This song is the perfect amount of sweet without being too over the top. It just feels really genuine to me.
Day 16: Favourite love (LDR or not) movie?
Oh gosh, I really hate chick flicks, to be honest. I’ve always had a sweet spot for Pearl Harbor though. I just love that time period, WWII, the classy fashion, and military men… such a good combo. It always makes me cry.
Day 17: Favourite love (LDR or not) quote?
"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough."
Day 18: Post a picture of the two of you together. (If you don’t have one, post a picture of something you can/could relate to)
Day 19: I know there’s not one thing, but choose one of your favourite things to hear her/him say.
I love when he calls me a sweet pet name, not just baby or something plain. Darlin & sugar are two of my favorites.
I also love when he talks about our future. We’ll just be having a normal conversation & he’ll say stuff like “when we’re married…” or “our kids…”. It’s just the little things that he says like they’re no big deal… like he knows we’re going to be together.
Day 20: Is there something you regret? (either about the relationship, or something you have done)
We’ve talked about this together a million times, but we both just hate giving so much of ourselves to past relationships. I learned something from every experience, but it stinks to know that we’ve loved other people. We’ve never been as happy with anyone else, but we have both said we regret how much that hurts the other. Exes are always rough.
Day 21: Give us a little insight (as much as you’re comfortable) on your sex life (either with this person physically, or your general history, or over the phone ha, whatever you want)
Uhh, negative ghost rider. I’m just going to say that I have never been as attracted to any other man like I am to him. Always have been, always will be. & I’ll leave it there …unless I get super suspicious anons, I suppose.
Day 22: Share something cute. (A story, something either of you have done, a song, memory, wish, dream)
He spent about a month before Christmas messing with my monogrammed ring I wear daily: taking it off, looking at it, asking about it.. whatever. & on Christmas he gave me a monogrammed bracelet that literally matched my ring perfectly. It was so sweet to see him look at it on me on Christmas day to make sure it matched my ring. It was nice to know how much he thought about it.
Day 23: Do you have a song? Which one is it? (if you don’t, then what is something that always reminds you of him/her)
We don’t really have a song. Something Like That by Tim McGraw always reminds me of him though & he doesn’t even know it. When we dated in high school, that was the first song I remember listening to together when we drove around in his car. Every time he sings it now it still makes me melt.
Day 24: Describe him/her physically and emotionally/personality-wise
He is probably the goofiest person in the whole world. He acts so outgoing all the time, but I can see how shy he is through all the talk. He reserves his emotions & his true self for people that are closest to him. He is a typical Southern boy: not emotional, strong but sweet, protective, chivalrous.
Day 25: One thing that he/she does that pisses you off (even if that smile while get you every time)
Ugh, he drives me nuts when we fight. I like to talk about things to work them out & he does not like to talk about them much. He gets over things quickly, but I need to talk about it till it won’t bug me anymore.
Day 26: Sweetest thing he/she has done for you
Day 27: If you had the money/time/connections/whatever to get him/her any gift in the world, what would it be?
I would get him a puppy! We have both been wanting a puppy forever. I can’t wait till the day we can get one together. He absolutely loves dogs & would loveee to have one!
Day 28: If you could have him/her with you physically for the next 5 hours, what would you do?
I’m honestly so tired now, all I’d wanna do is cuddle up and fall asleep with him next to me. It’s one of the best feelings to fall asleep next to someone you love.
Day 29: When will you see her/him next?
I’m super lucky: I’m getting to see him this weekend! I’ll be home for my great grandmother’s birthday & he will be meeting her for the first time. I can’t wait!
Day 30: Where do you see your future going with him/her?
I hope we end up getting married & creating a home and a family together. But you never know where life will take you. I hope he feels the same way & it’s in God’s plans for us.
Absolutely loved visiting my boyfriend’s family in Nashville! I just wish I could keep my emotions in check, for once. Maybe? Nothing is worse than wasting time with the one you love. Stupid female emotions… get the best of me every time.
