How was your weekend?

I want details!

I have the most amazing friends and family in the whole wide world! Not only did I receive countless emails and texts days leading up to Tyler's arrival but I received texts and emails and calls the day he left.
It was the weirdest feeling EVER! I woke up on Thursday nice and early with a huge list of items I needed to cross off. It was a very good thing, I was running around like CRAZY on Thursday which kept my mind off what was about to happen. I went and picked up Tyler's car around 330 (becuase he wanted to drive so bad, cute huh?) and that's when it hit me. I was so nervous. A good nervous, but I could just feel my stomach in knots with a million butterflies. I would have loved to have seen myself driving to the airport. I don't think I stopped smiling once, I sat on the edge of the car seat and was riding every ones tails because for some reason everyone was driving 35 MPH on the highway on Thursday! It must have been the day to drive slower than dirt just to piss off Kara! So maybe they were not going 35 but I felt as if I couldn't drive fast enough. I would like to take this moment to THANK GOD for not giving me a ticket for speeding, wreck less driving, or inappropriate gestures. I appreciate it. I think I screamed a couple of times in the car to myself with pure excitement I could not stand it. Driving up to the airport was the most exciting time in my life! Ok maybe just in the last 2 months... I only had to circle twice and the reason for the second time was I was not paying attention and passed the American airlines sign. I was just too excited, I really probably shouldn't have been driving because I was probably the most excited, most awful driver EVER! As I circled the third time I saw a tan, handsome greek boy with his back pack on standing on the curb with the BIGGEST smile I have ever seen. I threw the car in park and jumped out to give him the biggest hug and kiss ever. His smile was so big I was afraid he was going to rip his skin :) He was the cutest thing I have ever seen! He jumped in the driver seat, (thank god!) and I jumped in the passenger seat to just stare at him! We started driving and I just automatically just started crying tears of joy! I don't think I have ever cried tears of joy but I did. I was smiling so big and laughing with tears coming out of my eyes, it was the weirdest mixture I have ever felt.

It was an incredible weekend. We had SO Much fun. I have to say the first couple of days were SO weird. Seeing him in person was just not right. I was used to seeing him through a computer and not being able to squeeze his little cheeks! (his face cheeks, get your mind out of the gutter!) ((he does have a cute butt though :))) ANYWAYS! As you can tell I am still quite giddy over the weekend! It was so much fun, the wedding was beautiful and we had a blast. It was also so fun being in a wedding with Ty! It was so nice! Walking down the aisle knowing Ty was standing there made me nervous and calm at the same time. His little smile was so cute.

Isn't love just incredible! It can make you so happy or so sad. I feel quite lame being so sad when he is gone, but I have to say our relationship has only gotten stronger and stronger each and every year. Its crazy, I can only imagine how strong it will be when we are 80. I had a very hard time with him leaving on Sunday, it was one of those crying sessions that you have to gasp for air. I think it was so hard, because I knew how sad and lonely I am without him and how amazingly perfect and happy life is with him. I wanted to jump in his suitcase and go with him to Grenada, but I know the flight would have probably made me nauseous underneath the plane. Soon enough soon enough, is what I have to keep telling myself. I'm just going to come out with it, and say I want to move there NOW! I will become a prostitute to earn money and live down there. ok so Tyler was not happy with that plan, but I will come up with another one... i promise. Life is crazy and Love is crazier, it makes you want to do crazy things like move to an island! I also know many adults do not think its a smart idea. I understand people might be quite nervous but I know there is no other time I could live on an island with my love for the rest of my life. i only have one life to live and I need to live it how I want to and live it BIG! Right? and think about it I could learn how to braid hair and when I return I can braid your hair for free, you would have to pay for the beads (sorry I'm not a totally free service).

Life is amazing, tough right now but I know i can stick it out until May until Manis returns home. I love you my unbelievable friends and family and thank you for your support and love! You are amazing!!


  1. Peeps...this post was filled with everything you are. laughter. comfort. excitement. grace. passion. I could not love you more. I am SO thankful for the time you and Ty shared and for the life you are going to share together. Love you so so much. SO excited to have my hair beaded in the islands :)

  2. So glad your visit with each other was so special! I knew it would be amazing for you both and it seems it was! I had intended to email/text you before the arrival, but life got in the way... you know the details... keep strong until May. I love you friend!

  3. The only reason I like this Tyler character is because he makes you feel this way... he is so lucky he has this ability or else I would vote him off our island (haha oh so very punny). Hey, could you ask him if the natives use the word whilst... I heard it is a word they use... I am stoked if it is true.

  4. I love the way you love! You are so beautiful!

    I will pay you my life savings to have my hair braided.

    I cannot wait until the day you move down to Grenada! It is going to be wonderful! I met a couple who lived together in the Cayman Islands when they were younger. It made me even more excited for your move!

    I am so happy you had the past weekend with Tyler! Congratulations to him on his amazing test score!

  5. I love you all so much for such sweet sweet comments! I will braid all of your hair and throw in a few beads! I am so lucky to have such great friends!
