They say that every once in a while right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.
Four years ago today, love came into my life and gave me just that; my very own fairytale.
For as long as I can remember, like most girls my age, I’ve dreamed of finding my very own Prince Charming. Not the kind in the fairytales that rides in on his fancy horse though, but the kind of Prince Charming who was made just for me. The kind of Prince Charming who comes along and sweeps me off my feet. The one who shows me why it never worked with anyone else.
Four years ago today, I found that boy; I found my very own Prince Charming, strutting his way around a baseball field.
I found a boy who looks at me with his gorgeous blue eyes in a way that no other boy ever has before. A boy who can light up my whole entire day with just one single smile. A boy who makes me fall more and more in love with him, with each passing day. A boy who knows me better than anyone else in this world and despite my countless flaws, still loves me unconditionally.
I found a boy who spent half of the year on the opposite side of the world and still managed to make me feel as though he was right here beside me, the whole entire time. A boy who despite the distance between us, somehow made our love grow stronger than I ever thought possible.
I found a boy who has not only loved me at my best, but has loved me for years on end at my worst. A boy who despite countless circumstances that would have been reason enough for even the best of us to leave, has stayed. A boy who has been there every single second that I have needed him, from the very first moment we met.
I found a boy who is patient; so unbelievably patient. A boy who for his whole entire life had been early for everything, up until the day that he met me. A boy who now spends half of his life patiently waiting for his girlfriend, who is late to absolutely everything and still, he never once complains.
I found a boy who for the first time in my life, allows me to be completely myself. A boy who let’s me laugh uncontrollably at jokes that aren’t even funny, let’s me cry for no reason at all, let’s me embarrass myself atleast a million times over and still at the end of it all, kisses my forehead and tells me that he loves me.
I found a boy who treats me like an absolute princess. A boy who makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world, every single time he wraps me up in his arms. A boy who even at my worst, still somehow manages to make me feel beautiful.
I found a boy who above all else, just wants to make me happy. A boy who loves me more than I ever thought someone could and with each day that I look into those perfect blue eyes of his, I somehow find myself falling more and more in love.
I found a boy who is everything that I’ve always wanted and yet everything that I never knew I needed.
With every day that passes, it seems almost impossible to love him more and yet as days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months and months turn into years, sure enough our love for each other grows stronger. Just like that, with each passing year, we become happier and happier than we ever could have imagined.
Which brings us to the now; here we are now, four years on from that very first day that we met, madly head over heels in love. Here we are now, still writing our very own fairytale; a fairytale that still gives me butterflies, every single time.
A fairytale that as well as making me the happiest, luckiest girl in the world, has changed my life forever.
