ok so i’m getting a bit sappy today and you will now be subject to all of it.
i really like penguins - i mean they waddle and huddle through the crazy cold winter and are just crazy adorable! one of the things that i think is the best about penguins is they mate for life and when i male penguin has chosen his mate he will search the beach for a pebble to present her. the day before shawn left he gave me a pebble that he spent the day with his daughter searching the beach for. she didn’t understand why i would rather have a pebble than a diamond engagement ring, but he did and does. it is one of the many, many things i love about him. he gets me and gave me a pebble. i am so happy that in two weeks i will be getting ready to hop on a plane and be on my way to him. i’ve never missed someone like i miss him and have never loved someone like i love him. he has made me look at the world in a different way and has helped me to get back to the person i have always been, but seemed to of lost along the way. i am so excited to be with him again and get started on our new life in a foreign country. i know that this move is going to have a ton of ups and downs, but there is no one in the world i would want to go through all of that with.
edit: yes i know not all penguins mate for life some are just serial monogamists, but it’s still pretty f’n cute.
