Best Christmas present ever!

Sooooo...SO has been living in GA for the last 2.5 years(since sept. 09), working and going to school. We got together right before he left, but for the first year and a half or so, it wasn't super serious. Anyhow, I told you guys in my first intro post that we were working on him moving back here, etc. but we really didn't think it was going to happen until next summer.

 Welllllll...just got off the phone with him a little while ago and he announced that the move will be taking place during the week between Christmas and the New Year! HOLY CRUD! I gotta get this house in order! 

The Bean and I couldn't be happier than to finally all be under one roof. Bean has been wishing for this for several years, even before SO and I realized we were supposed to be together and were just best friends. Seems Bean knew before we did. 

Just wanted to share the wonderful news and excitement with you fine ladies.

    Thanks! Hey, how was your birthday?? I know we've only recently 'met', but I had read your post about it a few days ago and was thinking of you today hoping things went well.

    My birthday is actually tomorrow (today was just the day FI and I were supposed to celebrate which is why I was upset about him wanting to spend it with his brother instead), but today was wonderful! Eventually FI realized what I meant and realized that he needed to make me more of a priority. So, to celebrate my b-day... Today he took me out to my favorite local pizza place for lunch (which was fun!) and then we went to a craft sale thing in a historic home (I LOVE looking at historic homes, and going to craft sales!). Then on the way home he surprised me with another historic home that I've been wanting to tour and they had tours today, so that was fun! Finished it off with some lovin' and some chocolate cookies.

    Dammit! Now I want chocolate chip cookies...and peppermint hot cocoa...and...lovins.

    I'm so glad it turned out right. Sounds like it was a special treat and I'm happy to hear he made you a priority.

    And, it's pretty rare to have 'normal' new people these days. Seems like most of the time they're crazy. Or leave after a day.

    <div>I try to stay as grounded as possible. I feel like when you start getting too BSC you miss what's happening right there in front of you. Who wants to miss out on all the wonderful things that surround you in that very moment because you were thinking too much about the future. Now, that's not to say that one shouldn't think about the future and plan accordingly, but to place all one's focus on the future and neglect the present is a great mistake. </div>
