Valentine's Questionnaire

Happy Valentine's Day friends!! I love the spirit of love that today brings. I know that there is a lot of pressure for it to be the perfect day and only relevant if you're in a relationship, but I choose not to see it that way. For me, it's a day to appreciate all the ones I love in my life - my parents, my sister, Myles, Myles' fam, my grandparents, and my BFFs. I am so lucky to have all of those relationships and they're all important. 
I wish that my teenage self who did nothing but dream about the days I'm in now and wish like hell that I was in a relationship knew that it would all work out, and someone like Myles would come into my life just when I was happily single and confident in who I was. In all honesty, my whole life (age 6-21) I fell head over heels for all of the wrong people. I loved on people who didn't deserve it and I never got back as much as I put in. It was exhausting and sad and I felt like I couldn't be happy if I was single. Shortly before Myles and I met, I threw all that overboard and put tons of effort into building my faith, expanding my friend group, and doing all the things I'd been wanting to do but was too scared to and I'm so glad I did, because the person I am now is so much more deserving of him than the person I was before. 
 These days, it's even better than I'd imagined, and I'm here to tell anyone who feels like poop today because Hallmark is making you feel like less for being single, enjoy these days. Because one day you'll be looking back on them and wish you knew now what you'll know then, which is that everything will work out and all the things you're looking for are on their way!
Today, I thought it'd be fun to do a little Q&A about Myles and I's relationship, just for giggles.

How did we meet? 

We met in February of 2015 at a Student Senate meeting. It's actually quite funny because the committee was discussing providing free condoms to the student body and I was blushing like a baby! I remember leaving and thinking he would think I was such a little kid. Turns out he didn't notice at all! He still to this day says he doesn't even remember me being there. True love, right?

First Impressions?

I thought Myles was quiet and must've older then me because he was very laid back and seemed confident, but not cocky. I liked that he wasn't trying to be the center of attention but hated his Chacos. He was sweet and talkative ever since then and never made me feel silly or stupid for wanting to talk to him.

(written by Myles)  The first time that Sarah and I met, she was reserved but not quiet. Our conversation was about One Direction, it was the day one of them left (I still don't know who?). From then on we talked nearly everyday. 

How long have we been together? 

We have been together *officially* for about 14 months, but unofficially closer to 2 years. We hung out all the time and went on dates for about 8 months before we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend.
We have lived together since last July and is has been so much fun everyday.

My favorite memory:

I have so many funny stories and memories of our relationship so far, but my favorite time in our relationship was our trip to Amelia Island last year. We were so carefree and just enjoying the good weather and lack of a schedule. We cooked together for almost all of our meals and rode bikes everywhere we went.
(written by Myles) My second favorite memory, because Sarah stole our trip to Amelia, was her birthday this past year. The day began in New Orleans, with brunch at the Ruby Slipper and the best bloody-mary. Then we played tourists in the French Quarter before we got dressed up for dinner. Finally, we ended the night losing some money at Harrah's Casino! 

I am so thankful to have found Myles and get to do life with him everyday. He is smart, and funny, and thoughtful, and handsome, and while we have tons in common, we never run out of things to talk about. I love that we have both grown so much together, but still have so much growing and changing to look forward to.
This Valentine's Day, I am obviously glad to celebrate with Myles, but also so grateful for all the wonderful friends and family I have in my life. It's great to be in a relationship and have a built in best friend, and I wish I had known these days were coming, but that could never replace the wonderful support system I have in addition to Myles. 

Who are you thankful for today?
