10.10, 1 and 1

Tomorrow marks 1 year and 1 month into my relationship with Kelly. It's been a challenging, sobering and introspective time, but one I wouldn't trade for the world. I've been remembering the first few couple of months of our friendship together and how worried I was to blow it, to complicate it, or to lose what made it special. There were certainly plenty of opportunities for it to all fly apart. But she's an amazing person, and somehow she fought past all of my insecurity and all of Kat's insecurity and she's stuck by our side. I have only a handful of people like that in my life, who I can truly say with any honesty, would be by my side through thick and thin.

There are still some challenges to overcome. Right now the main one is time. Her schedule and my schedule haven't worked together very well as of late. I'm hoping that will smooth out sooner rather than later. I miss having the free time to just cuddle on the couch and watch a stupid movie, even though we wasted WAY too much time doing that. I miss watching the stars late at night in the park. Hopefully there will be more time to do that before it gets cold.

But we'll get there. We've made it through this last crazy year and haven't killed each other, or anyone else. So I take that as a sign of stability. :D
