Joris

2004 - the year Joris and I met. One of the first photos I took of him 
With everything going on the last couple of months I sort of forgot something very important. Last march {we don't know the exact date} 
Joris and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary :)! 
I never really dedicated one entire post on my blog to him yet and I have no idea why not because I'm so happy to have him in my life.

Joris and I met in January 2004 and with him looking like a straight up Gothic I have to admit I was a little scared of him, at first... The first thing I ever said to him, was: 'You can come sit next to me if you want'(we were in a bus). Looking a little surprised, he sat next to me and from that moment on I discovered the sweetest most understanding person in the world. 

We went out for walks in the park and I think I had the highest phone bill ever during those months. We became closer and before I even had the time to realize what was happening, I loved him. And luckily he loved me back :).

I don't know why, but when we just had a relationship a lot of people I had in my life then, seemed to think we weren't going to last long. We both had some complicated issues going on and we lived in different towns. Our road wasn't always easy for sure and our love has overcome lots of challenges but we made it through all of that and I'm so proud of us!

He knows how to calm me down, how to cheer me up, make me laugh (a lot) and he is always there for me no matter what. He really got me through some very difficult periods in my life and even when it was almost at his expense, he never left my side. 
I love you Joris :)!
