My only regret is that we didn't meet sooner


*Our first picture together

I was reading Zac's birthday card to me from last year + one of my favorite things he's written me was "My only regret is that we didn't meet sooner."  It melts my heart every time I read it.  It got me thinking about that.  Zac + I went to the same Preschool, Elementary School, High School + College, but he was a grade/year older.  We have mutual friends that we've known our whole lives.  Our best friends shared a backyard and he even went on a date with my best friend (strange, I know).  He says he remembers me, but I honestly have no memories of him.  My memory is pretty bad.  I really wish it was better because I do cherish memories + the little things that have happened in my life.  That's why I make sure to keep a journal + write this blog + take lots of pictures. 

I was telling my mom yesterday that I wish Zac + I had met sooner.  I think waiting until you are older to get married is a good idea + I've grown so much in the past few years that make me the person that I am today, but I think about how happy I am with him.  I could have (?)years of memories, experiences + adventures instead of just 2 1/2.  I'm not the kind of person that lives with regrets + I know things happen for a reason.  There's just a few relationships that I think tainted some of the things that may have made my experiences sweeter if they hadn't happened.  I'm not sure if that makes sense + I don't really want to do into detail, sorry.

Zac asked if I was having a midlife crisis, haha.  I told him no, I just wish we had more time together.  Then he replied with "we've got the rest of our lives together."  I know that's true + I'm so lucky that I even met him at all.  I can't wait to live the rest of our lives together + experience all the great things that are in our future.  It's going to be an amazing journey ♥

Danielle's post inspired me to write this :)

    I completely understand! I've had similar feelings before about William and the one thing I can comfort myself with is this- everything we go through makes us the person that we are. If I hadnt had the experiences both good and bad that I've had i wouldn't be the person that I am today ; the girl William fell in love with. We grew up around each other too but I feel like if we had had this relationship too much earlier we wouldn't be ready for what we have and maybe that would've scarred this. Qw can't look back on the past with regret because look at the great place it's brought us to! :)

  2. Awe :) You are such a sweetie Michelle! I totally agree. That's the other thing. Who knows if we had met sooner that things would have worked out so perfectly ;) I think we were both at the right place, at the right time.
