Man, am I lucky!

Way back in 2002, I started dating Jake. As soon as we started hanging out, I knew that he was going to be a great guy. It wasn't for a few months that I figured out that I liked him and in that time, he had become my best friend. I know this is cheesy but I just have to say how lucky I am to be with him. I am not one to express my feelings much - I am an extremely talkative person and can tell you pretty much how I feel about anything but as soon as it comes to telling a friend that they mean the world to me or telling Jake how great he is, I just get awkward.

For me, it is really in the little things that Jake does that I do realize how great I have it. For example, since school has started back I haven't really had time for anything, much less him or doing anything for myself. Jake has not complained one bit. My mornings are crazy - I get to school at 6:45 so I wake up at 6 and am out the door at 6:30. I barely have time to match my outfits, much less make a lunch so the other day, Jake made my lunch the night before and had it in the fridge for me. He knew that the day before, I had felt awful by the end of the day because I was so hungry since I didn't have a lunch. Then today, I forgot my leftovers that I had saved for lunch. He didn't have class so he willingly brought me Back Yard Burger - he didn't even have to ask what I wanted, he knew.

While both of those things sound silly, the really show how perfect he is for me. Last night, he even went to see the Sound of Music with me. We got invited by my friend Sarah, who plays a nun in the show. Jake isn't a fan of musicals and especially hates the Sound of Music but he sat through it and even broke down all the characters and commented on the show with me at intermission. I guess just like I've learned to love football, he's learning to love musicals.
