The best thing..

I know not many of you followers are active, or pay attention to me anymore now that I’m not on Tumblr anymore, but I’d like to share with you the best thing to have ever happened to me.

I hope some of you long time followers remember me from way back when. Just another Tumblr kid hoping to be “Tumblr famous”, of which I was on a fast track to if I hadn’t quit. Anyways - everyone knew I was absolutely in love with a girl you all know as littlefinch. We lived together, we were best friends, and I couldn’t imagine a day without her in my life. It was no secret, she knew, you knew, everyone knew. It was a point in my life where I felt low for about a year or two. 

But one day everything changed. She had fallen in love with me too. It was since that day that the happiest I’ve ever been had begun. We went places, had fun, and never once second thought each other. True love like most people dream of, we were inseparable best friends and she meant the world to me.

It was for her that I joined the United States Army. It was for her that I went to college to get enough education to enlist, and if it wasn’t for her I probably would have been a high school drop out with no job by now. She completely changed my life and set me on a path I never thought I’d be, for the better. The support her parents and herself have given me has been invaluable and I can’t thank them enough for it.

Last Saturday, March 22nd, 2014, I proposed to her. She left the room, and I quickly wrapped the ring around one of our pet rats with a pink ribbon, and let me tell you it was adorable. She came in, eye’s beaming, and jumped in excitement. Now, Allie being Allie, she snapped a few quick pictures of it, and then I got on one knee and asked her to marry me.

She said yes.

I honestly can’t wait to spend the rest of my days with her. She is my everything. With that, I’ll leave you a picture of the ring, and a message of advice:

Don’t ever give up. No matter how hopeless things become, how upside down a situation gets, follow your heart and trust what it tells you. You never know where it can lead you. Always have hope.
