The countdown is ON! After 1.5 years of living 1,099 miles (exactly) apart, my guy is finally moving home! I can barely believe it, but I’m so darn excited.
Oh, I forgot to mention this is a break from my usual posting to share my utter excitement.
Real talk. We’ve been together for two years, meaning yes, the majority of our relationship has been long distance. And now, we’re moving in together! I basically feel like Christmas is coming early this year, you know? I’m over the moon – and totally past all the planets, including Pluto, which I’m advocating for.
Now, why am I posting on my blog about the end of my LDR? Because (1) I’m too excited not to share that in one month my favorite person in the world will be back in the same state and (2) because I know many of you have dealt with similar experiences.
For those of you that have, what was the hardest part of the transition? Long distance to living together is a huge step, but I know it will take work to get in the groove. So if you know what I’m talking about, do share!
oh so exciting!!!! craig and i did LD for about a year, but i think the key is patience. it’s important to remember you each won’t understand each other’s living quirks right away! i know it’s tough to remember when you’re in the moment, but a good “i’m sorry” with a favorite treat always worked for me 😉
Thank you for sharing, Alex! I know it’ll definitely be a transition, but I’m really looking forward to it. Not having to pay so much to see him will definitely be one of the perks 😉
YAY! So exciting! The majority of our dating relationship was spent long distance, and it sucks. I am so happy for you!
Thank you, Chelsea! It’s certainly challenging, but I’ve loved that we’ve been able to travel while he’s been in Atlanta. I would go so far as to say seeing Nashville and Savannah were worth it 😉
So excited for you! Wishing you all the best in this new chapter. 🙂
Thank you Kelly! I’m so so excited!
Nelson and I were not only apart while we dated (he was in São Paulo, I was in Espírito Santo), but for the first 2 years of marriage too (he was in the US, I was still in Brazil). Yeah, pretty unconventional, having a long distance marriage, right? Ha! It all turned out fine, we’ve been under the same roof for almost 8 years now. As Alex said, patience is key, but also having your own plans and time. You’ll see it’s as hard as it seems. 😉 All the best to you two!
That’s incredible! Serious props to you two for making the best of the situation. I’ve talked to a few of my friends about long distance, but if they haven’t experienced it, it’s hard for them to really understand how difficult (yet rewarding), it can be. Thank you so much for sharing your story! Luckily, T. and I are both incredibly busy and usually out of the apt, so I think we’ll be able to really treasure the time we have together – I can’t wait! 🙂
That’s awesome!! Congrats Gabriella! Wish you both all the best.
Thank you! I’m so unbelievably excited and had to share here 🙂
