When he said, "I Love You"

This past weekend I was commenting on some blogs and found me some inspiration.
I was checking out Ashleigh's latest post over at Waking Up In Vegas.
And she shared her story about when she "knew" that her guy was the one.
Everyone needs to go read it because it is SO sweet and it inspired me to do a similar post!

We had been together just short of a year.
Everything was still exciting and new.
 He still gave me those same butterflies that I would always get
 when I saw his name pop up on my phone shortly after we met.
It was perfect.
We made each other laugh, we were spontaneous, 
and we wanted to spend every second together.

One of our favorite things to do was go on "sonic runs",
I have a slight addiction to ice cream & he'd do anything to see me smile.
We would jump in his black truck and head over to sonic.
Buy an oreo or butterfinger blast to share and laugh until our cheeks hurt.
Kyle was on the track team at our college and I ran track in highschool.
This might freak/gross some of you out but we thought it was the funnest thing ever.
One of us would take a bite of the blast and then the other would say "STICK!"
(in track when running a relay that's what you say when passing the baton)
and then we'd kiss each other with our mouths full of ice cream.
We loved it.
We had "sonic runs" regularly, but this night was different.
I started noticing things.
How I would look up & he'd be looking at me with the biggest smile on his face.
How he'd constantly melt my heart by asking, "Why are you so pretty?"
How he really listened to me when I told him pointless stories. 
How he genuinely cared about my happiness.
How he squeezed my hand anytime someone would mention "forever" or "marriage".
How he kissed my head every single time I would rest it on his shoulder.

That night we went back to his house, and popped in a movie.
We've never been good at watching movies,
I always have to start up a conversation.
We were laying in his bed laughing, and making fun of each other,
when I asked him, "Do you like me?"
His reply: "No"
It was quiet for about 1 second, and then he said.
"I love you Monica"
I dont think I have ever smiled so big in my entire life.
Kyle is not the kind of guy that enjoys "sharing his feelings" or being "lovey dovey"
His family still doesnt understand how I "deal" with him being so 
un-romantic, and unable to show his feelings.
But when it's just us 2...
Just Me, Kyle, and this crazy love that we share
He's the most perfect, thoughtful, caring, and loving man that I have ever known.
(besides my daddy)
After he told me he loved me I just stared at him with this goofy smile,
Until finally I realized that I should probably let him know that I love him as well.
And so I did, and then we smiled at each other like weirdos for a little while.

Since then, he has continually brought so much joy to my life.
I never realized that you could be with someone for 4 years 
and still be in the "honeymoon stage".
To this day, he still makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world.
And although he's not perfect, and we have our ups & downs.
I wouldn't trade what we have for ANYTHING.

Where it all began <3
