Before I write anything, I just want to leave a little disclaimer. I am writing this article for me, so that I’ll have something to look back on. The main reason why I started blogging seven years ago is so that I can write about my life and look back someday. I don’t know why I stopped writing about my life, really. I guess I’ve lost my way. From now on, I’ll start writing for myself again.
I honestly don’t know where to start. Earvin and I met seven years ago through our friend Kevin. 🙂 Earvin was a transferee and so am I. We became classmates in some of our classes and that’s where it all started. Hehe!
Each year with him has been nothing short of amazing, I feel like we’re always accomplishing something for our relationship every year. We always push each other to be the best version of ourselves. We always help each other in reaching our personal dreams and we know for a fact that we always have each other’s back no matter what.
The past few years has been the toughest phase of my life so far and Earvin never left. It got really chaotic and I’ve had the worst temper during those bad days but he never gave up on me. He never let me face the hardships alone. He kept me sane through it all and he always try his best to make me smile, to make me happy.
Even on the days that I felt like giving, he never failed to show me the light. On days that I am losing faith in God and in myself, he never let me go astray. Instead, he showed me how much he loved me and he lead me back to the right path.
We don’t have the perfect relationship. In between of laughter and smiles are a lot of petty fights and a few big fights. There are quite a number of times where we almost broke up. I am vocal about it but he never agreed. He had so much faith in our relationship, and for that I am very thankful.
And the thing that made me realize that he’s the man I’d want to spend the rest of my life with is how he bonded and interacted with my sister. My sister means the world to me, the way to my heart is and will always be through her.
My sister likes him too, I sometimes gets jealous because when we go home sometimes, my sister would hug him first before. lol.
when he popped the question…
It was really funny actually. lol. Earvin will hate me for sharing this but I kinda spoiled the proposal. I have read a conversation with his friends on his phone and it kinda ringed the bell that he was planning to propose. lol. So being the annoying girlfriend that I am, I asked him about it. Haha!
He denied it, yes. But I already saw it coming! Haha!
He said that I’m stressing him too much and that I watch too much NCIS. He even told me I would make a great investigator. lol
I would always tease him and tell him that I need to get a nice dress for our lunch date during our 7th year anniversary and that I have to do my makeup for the lunch date so that I’ll look pretty in our photos when he propose. Haha! We even got into a huge fight because he cancelled our plans to go to the mall few days prior. I let my temper burst and got angry at him because I’m stressing over the dress that I’ll wear for the date. Haha!
However, he never popped the question during our lunch date. Haha! I am teasing him the whole time! I would joke around and I kept telling him to never put the ring into the food because I might end up eating it. Haha! When I asked for a Tempura, I even joked that I’ll be careful with the Tempura ’cause the ring might be inside the batter. Haha!
I kept asking him about the ring and he said he wasn’t gonna propose because I spoiled the surprise. Hahaha! I felt disappointed when he said that, to be honest. I kind of regret spying on him too much. Haha! Little did I know, he got our friends Kevin, Franzen, and Gerry to prepare for the proposal at our home while we were out on our lunch date. Sneaky sneaky!
When he asked the question, I wasn’t really able to say yes, wasn’t able to say anything actually. I felt overwhelmed, I felt special, I felt so loved.
Right now, I am just so excited to spend the years to come with this goofy man. I can’t wait to see what life has to offer to both of us. 🙂 One thing is for sure, I know it’s going to be filled with laughter and happiness.
