On International Women’s Day, I present my beautiful daughter Sasha’s most recent blog post. As always, she’s keeping it real, talking about herself, true love and farting.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did:
“My boyfriend and I recently celebrated one year together on March 1st, 2016. It was a big deal for me considering I have never really had a boyfriend before and committing to anything for a long period of time was usually not something I was up to. To be honest Joseph makes it really easy to be in a relationship with someone for a long time. Most of the time he is nothing but a loving, caring, funny, great partner. Thats not to say he doesn’t have flaws, everyone has flaws. As I usually do I will be pointing out some of his right now; he has really bad hearing (he claims its from being a musician), when I get mad at him he has a tendency to laugh when I’m trying to be serious, getting him out of the house takes about 10-20 minutes longer than it should, there are more that I just can’t think of at the moment.
But you see I have flaws too but as I usually do, I won’t be sharing any of them. One of the things I love most about Joseph is that whether my flaws be gross, annoying or probably incredibly unattractive he loves me. As a matter of fact most of the things that I consider flaws of something to be insecure about he usually says is “cute”. For example, I fart just as EVERYONE else in the world does. About three months in I accidentally let out a small fart. Both of us went silent and I immediately thought of something I could blame it on he smile and laughed a little and all he said was “Thats so cute!”.
The reason I am sharing this weird fart story or even blogging at all is because I love him so much for loving me in so many ways. Also because we are sitting in our new apartment and I was saying how I wanted to blog again. He has always wanted me to blog again mostly because he thinks its cute, but also because he knows I enjoy doing. When I asked him what to blog about he answered with no hesitation “blog about me”. So I did.”
Huge heaps of gratitude to all of the women out there, near and far and in my heart; always inspiring, enriching and enlivening in so many unfathomable ways.
