Squiggle Hearts and Nights Set on Fire

Umm, hi.  So, there’s a boy and I am smitten.  This weekend was an intense whirlwind of amazing and I am trying to put it into words while doing it justice… but I am failing miserably at describing what it feels to have a normal night catch on fire.  Sigh.  So, here’s what I know… Day 3.  This post is brought to you by the bullet point.

  • I am thinking about him all the time.  He is thinking about me all the time.  How do I know this you ask?  Because we unabashedly tell each other all the time how much we like each other and how much we think about each other.  Swoon.
  • Intense feelings.
  • He knows all about THIS (I’m gesturing wildly at the whole of the internet) and he digs it.  He also learned the hard way that I can tell when people are reading my archives, at 4:30am on a Sunday morning.  Opps.
  • We tease each other mercilessly, and every time he does it, I like him more.
  • He does this thing with his thumb on my chin when we kiss that MELTS ME.
  • He geeks out just about as hardcore as I do.  When he geeks out he rambles and his eyes dance.  I would like my life to be full of that.
  • He’s taking everything I am telling him and filing it away.  I’ve never had anyone put so much effort into knowing all the facts so quickly.  Last night, he described my eyes in detail: complete with the amber flecks around my pupils. 
  • He makes me nervous, and then he calls me out on having sweaty hands.
  • He made me a mixed CD… and that’s when I learned he draws hearts like a blind person.  Which may be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
  • We are simultaneously SO SIMILAR in how we think and process life, while also being almost completely different in interests.  I am loving all the middle ground we have been finding though.
  • He tells it like it is.  No games.  No guessing.  I leave him knowing when I will see him next.  It is the easiest thing I have ever done, easy as breathing. 
  • My hand feels at home in his.
  • We already have a song.  I played it on repeat all morning.  
  • He has caught me completely off-guard.

  1. This post makes me really happy for you, Bri! Those feelings are amazing, go with them and see where they take you. Sometimes the best things are those that catch us while we're not looking. =)

  2. My favorite part "My hand feels at home in his." This is definitely the best sign of perfection.

  3. Good luck with the boy! New thigns are always so exciting. :) January Hymn is probably my favorite off the new Decemberists album- at least up there with Down By The River.

  4. This is just as good as the e-mail that you sent me. Miss Bri, I think you broke me of my dislike for sap. this is too cute. HE is too cute, and tell him that he needs to send his nice teacher brothers to New Jersey. Mkay?

  5. […] like him would want to come bring me lunch and he was shocked that I wanted him to come.  That entire weekend feels like a movie I’ve watched hundreds of times, We both remember every bit in vivid detail, and it still gives me goosebumps.  When I am down I […]
