I got back from celebrating Yom Kippur in Philadelphia early on Sunday morning and M came over around noon to spend the rest of the day together. When he arrived he had some cards in his hands for my birthday. He had told me before he felt so badly about not having a card on my birthday, but I wasn't upset and I was surprised he remembered. Anyway, the first card wasn't even from him. He picked up a card and signed it from Poppy! I thought that was so sweet and really cute! The next card was from M and it was very funny. The thing I didn't notice until today was that he signed it "love, M." I am not going to make more of it than necessary, but I don't throw that word around, so when I really looked and noticed it, it did throw me for a bit of a loop. Anyway, moving on....
We made a list of all of the things we wanted to do. M is moving into a new apartment and he needs all sorts of furniture. So we started at Sleepy's trying out mattresses and moved onto furniture stores. When I asked M what his style was he was like, "what style?" He was basically thinking of just getting a leather couch and calling it day! I won't lie, I have black leather furniture too, its easy to clean and you can add all sorts of accent pieces to make it individual. When I mentioned to M what other colors he would want he looked at me like I had three heads. It was pretty funny! We had so much fun looking at so many different couches and tables and all of that stuff. By the end of the excursion he said he had a better idea of things he would like and that he got some great ideas. After we were done pretending to decorate his new place we went over to Brooks Brothers because he needed some new shirts for work. We found some great options, one that I just LOVED! But they didn't have his size. He said he was going to see if they have it at another one, who knows? Maybe he'll show up wearing it one of these days? We finished the day off my having yummy sushi and walking around a street festival that we found on our way home.
The whole day spent together was so easy. And when we got back to my place it just seemed natural that he should stay. We both had work the next day so we had to be up early, but i didn't want him to leave and he didn't want to go anywhere either. While we were in bed he started to laugh about something and when I asked him what he said nothing. Now, I couldn't stand for that, so I made him tell me. He then proceeded to tell me how when we first started dating he was surprised because I wasn't what he thought he was looking for, but now he really wants to be with me. That I surprise him every time we are together, he likes being with me and maybe the things he thought he wanted weren't really what he wanted at all. Yes, I will be honest and say that my heart was pounding and I was blushing and didn't know what to say. I told him how much I like being with him and how I feel like we just fit together and this is all just so comfortable.
So, who knows where this is all going (my mother is already planning my wedding, I am sure of it). I just know that I like where we are, and even though its all happened so fast I don't want to change anything.
