Devoted to a Year Come and Gone

April 24th, 2010

 As Graeme and I approach a year of long distance being together I keep getting the questions of, "How do you make it work?" or "Don't you just want to go insane because of the distance? I know I did after being away from *so and so*." And my answers pretty much sum into one. It is in no way easy, but we make it work because we both have discovered that sometimes the best things in life are worth fighting for and waiting for. 

There probably isn't a day that goes by that I don't think, "gosh I wish my boyfriend lived in the same state as me." but the reality is that he doesn't and as of right now there is nothing I can do about that. All I can do is be the best when communicating when I have the chance, being completely present when we get the chance to skype once a week, and make the effort to do small things that remind him that I care, and that I will still be here as we sort our visas and moves and everything else that goes into falling for someone that isn't from here. :) 

He is so much more than what I have expected a man to be in my life and yes our relationship may look different than most, but I am devoted to making it work whether we are apart or together.
