Denny & Peter

Where do I begin? Well hello, since I've last spoken to you I've recently gotten engaged <3 I promised I would share our engagement story and thought I should probably start by sharing a little bit about us and our long distance relationship. 

It's been a little over 6 and a 1/2 years for Peter and I who also goes by John (he has two first names) and it's never been easy. Long distance is one of the weirdest emotional things I have ever experienced. One week your completely happy, the other extremely lonely, and everything in between. You're constantly waiting and savoring the time you actually do get to spend together and for us it wasn't much. Other than face timing and writing letters in the mail, we would see each other about 3-4 times a year just for a week or so. It requires prayer, love, patience, loyalty, trust, and honesty, the works you usually need in a relationship amplified times a million. But despite the distance, he has always been there for me. He's the one who makes me say "I wish you were here", he makes me feel like my happiest best self, he's the one who I've slept on the phone with for 6 years, and at times I questioned my capabilities I felt his support 403 miles away. Any relationship is hard when it's worth it and lucky for me I was blessed with a guy who made being distant easier than it really is by loving me so close.
