another year has come and gone once again. yesterday, it was nine years since me and david got engaged.
nine years since that giggly night in greece when i asked him to be my fiancé as a joke.
nine years since he shocked me by saying yes.
and just a week ago, we moved into our first own apartment here in berlin. we have nothing, just some clothes, an air mattress, and each other. after a decade together, that’s what we have to show for ourselves. but for some reason i find that romantic. exciting even.
because although it may mean that we are far from being settled, successful, and stable – it at the same time hints of a life more adventurous, free, and nomadic than i ever would have expected of myself.
and it never would have happened without david. he’s the sole reason that i dare to dream, move, try, and live a life less expected.
after nine years together, he still manages to keep being fresh to me. to be surprising and exciting. i don’t know how he does it.
ok so sometimes he is really predictable and boring too. often i know exactly what he will say before he opens his mouth. and i take him for granted like crazy. but that’s good too.
there’s a balance of excitement and familiarity.
when we’ll get married ?
who cares, i’m happy as i am.
love // jenny
