With everyone going back to school, I've been thinking about college a lot. I only went to school for one year, but it sure was a wonderful year. A year full of fun, learning, growing, and meeting some really beautiful people.
I remember my first few days at college. All that Lee and I had during that time was each other- thank goodness for that! We hardly knew anyone and it was our first time so far away from home. All of the things that were familiar to us for so long were gone instantly. I remember it being a exciting feeling but a pretty depressing one too.
I think it was during that time that Lee became "my home", if you will. Ever heard of that quote that says something like 'home is wherever my husband is'. Yeah... that's how I felt. But back then it would have been 'home is wherever my boyfriend is' ;) But really, I don't know how I would have managed without him!
Remember the first day/night in your dorm room? Essentially, you're in a extremely SMALL space with a stranger that you hardly know. Everything about this is so awkward! Ha. I remember my roommate and I would be talking at night with the lights off and we wouldn't know when to stop the conversation and go to bed! Ha it's so funny to think about it. I remember feeling like I was the most awkward person ever...maybe because I was.
Thankfully, the weirdness only lasted for a little while ;) My roomie and I ended up having so much fun together that year. She was so sweet :) I really LOVED living with a bunch of girls. It seemed like every night we would all stay up sooo late just talking. It was like a sleepover all the time!
Lee ended up meeting his BEST MAN in just that short year of college. He became our best friend. It was such a blessing to meet him!
I really only have good things to say about our year at school. I learned SO much. That was a year full of growth for both of us. Growth in knowledge, growth in the Lord, and growth in our relationship and our relationships with others.
I am so thankful for that beautiful year. A year I will never forget :)
