Ending of an Era

So many changes are happening. Changes that are all good but changes I have been wanting for a long time.

Last night marked an ending of an era for me. I spent my last night in my apartment as a young woman. A young woman who has had her own room her entire life other than my first two years in college. From childhood rooms to college and into my career, I have had my own room.

Today marks the beginning of a new era. I am moving in with the man I love so deeply. Since high school, I have always dreamt of finding the man I'd one day end up marrying and we would make a home together. Even though I am not married yet, I know that the day is not far away and I know it will come at the perfect moment.

How lucky am I to have a man who loves me and wants to take care of me each and everyday? A man who wants to go to sleep every night with me by his side. A man who wants me to be the first person he sees when he wakes up in the morning. How lucky am I?

This big move has been in the making for over two years and I could not be more excited. We both feel like the timing is right and our relationship has never been better. We both have lived with roommates post college, he spent the last year living alone, while I got to live with one of my best friends. We have stable careers, our love for one another continues to grow stronger, we know each others flaws and routines, and we are both ready to bring our lives into one.

So today is the big move. What's mine, what is his, will now be "ours." Ours forever. He will be my roommate, my companion, my lover and my home; and I will be the same for him.

Next month (Sept. 3rd to be exact) marks four years since the day we met. My world was turned up side down. I am so lucky, thankful, overjoyed and excited to be moving in with the man I love. My advise to you when making this decision, make sure you both want it and are ready. Timing is everything. You will know when the time is right. Wish us luck and more to come.

This girl has grown up. Time to be a grown woman now.
