Day 10 ~ Discuss your first love and your first kiss.
He was everything I’d ever wanted in a significant other – caring, passionate, funny. Handsome. Spontaneous. Someone I felt comfortable around. Someone I felt safe with. And I still feel that way about him today, even after almost two years together. And in those two years, I’ve found myself falling in love with him, every day, for new reasons. How excited he gets when he watches the conferences for Apple. How much he loves our children and how much enjoyment he gets out of playing with them and seeing them happy. As for our first kiss, haha! I tried to dodge his kisses because I was nervous and I was afraid I wouldn’t be a good kisser. But before he went to his class that morning, we stopped by the doors and he kissed me. And it was everything a first kiss with someone should be. Sparks. Heart pounding. Shaking. Nervous as hell. It was then that I knew – even though we had just met earlier that morning and weren’t an exclusive couple – I knew I could fall in love with him and spend the rest of my life with him. And I’ve done just that. 💕

Day 12 ~ Bullet your whole day.
- Finish laundry
- Take out the trash/recycling
- Go to the library
- Take a shower
- Straighten the basement
- Put Audrina’s birthday gifts away
My day is actually going to be really really boring, and I’m not doing anything out of the ordinary. Except going to the library. We haven’t done that in a while.
Day 13 ~ Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.
I’ve posted about this before, but the one place on the top of my list of places to visit is Ireland. 🇮🇪 I have a serious love of the landscape (even though I’ve only seen pictures), and I love the thought of being immersed in Irish culture. I’m part Irish so maybe that helps. I can’t say that I’ll ever actually make it to witness the rolling green hills of Ireland, but it’s definitely a dream.
Day 14 ~ Your earliest memory
Not the greatest prompt for someone like me who has unintentionally blocked out a vast majority of my life. I’m not good with memories. For the last few years my memories have been coming to me in pieces. I randomly remember things that don’t seem relevant but they suddenly become a small piece in a larger puzzle. It’s complicated.
The memories that always stay with me, and that have seemingly not faded over the years, are the ones of my Nanny sitting in the stands at my softball games, relentlessly cheering me on. Chanting the silly cheers we chanted sitting on the bench as our team mates were up to bat. Hollering at the umpire if she didn’t agree with a call he made. Even those memories are pieces of larger memories, but they’ve never disappeared. They’ve never been blocked out. They’ve always stayed fresh, pushing me and motivating me, reminding me that even now I have someone in my corner.
Day 15 ~ Favorite Tumblrs
I’m starting to see that this was probably a blog challenge meant for Tumblr. But that’s okay – I can still mention a few of my favorite Tumblr pages. Let’s see…
