At this time in our relationship, there are many countdowns. Countdown until the family reunion, countdown to Carrie moving back to Jax, and definitely a countdown to EUROPE!!! Countdowns to beginnings of Carrie's new job, countdown to the start of my internship at Trinity, which leads to the countdown of my graduation in DECEMBER!!
All of the these countdowns will come and pass in no time.
The transition from us being together APART to being together TOGETHER is one of the most exciting countdowns of our relationship so far. Having someone in your life that has made such a huge impact on my life as Carrie being 187 miles or 2- 2 1/2 hours depending on traffic ;) has taken an incredible amount of trust and patience.
The time spent before bed on the phone knowing that I had to be up at 130 am was worth everything just being able to solve any problems we were going through just so we wouldn't go to bed mad at each other. The 35+ times we call each other daily just to give a word of encouragement to get us to the end of the day has been worth all of the jokes from my buddies constantly asking, "You're calling her AGAIN?!?!" I know that deep down inside they are just jealous that they don't have someone as amazing as Carrie in their lives... =)
As mentioned before, countdowns... if you didn't already know... CARRIE MOVES HOME IN 9 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!
I am pretty excited about that... like you haven't noticed right? :)
It is an exprience like non other to have the one you love come home and not have to leave 3 or 4 days later.
