Workin’ my way through emails tonight and thought hey, may as well send one I actually want to write.
I know it has only been a few months of being really intentional with things, but I also know that I have more appreciation for what we have than any other friendship I’ve ever had. It’s so good. You are the best and I am happy to be able to spend any time I have with you. I’m definitely struggling with the right words to use to express my thoughts – but I am ecstatic when it comes to you.
You really are the full package, you’re an incredible woman and as you can see by my frequent stares… I’m in awe of you. Looking forward to Wednesday night together, having some fun, laughing, and learning more about you.

Oh hey there.
I loved this weekend. It was wonderful to be with you for two full days. It was nice to have a visual of where you grew up, the houses you spent your time in, the roads you loved to drive on. I really love Courtenay and I really like your family. I was so happy we got to have lunch with your mom AND spend time with her and Tommy after the grad. It was fun to meet a few of the people you talk about – put more faces to names – and it was just… nice to be there. I’m glad we have gotten to visit Victoria and Courtenay since the beginning of May. Both places you grew up. Seeing those places mean a lot to me. You are amazing. I am blessed to have such a patient, kind, caring boyfriend.
The way Randy saw it, he knew enough about my character to be confident of his future with me. Whatever else he didn’t know about my heart, didn’t matter. He had seen enough “good” to deal with the unknown.
