On June 6, 2015, I was proposed to by my boyfriend of four years. I had a feeling that he was going to pop the question, but I didn’t know when, where or how he was going to do such things.

So how did he pop the question?

How he ask? As I was helping him move and arrange boxes, etc., in his apartment, we started to talk about the future as we always do. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t talk about the future, whether it’s our individual goals, or goals  we have together. He then started to walk towards his room. As he was proceeding, he said “Brittany come here.” I started to follow him. When I met him in his room, he started to say the word OUR , which isn’t new to me because that word was in his/our vocabulary everyday, but this was different. As he was talking he started getting teary eyed and began pouring his heart and soul into the atmosphere around us. He reach into a case he had on the dresser and pull out a box with a white ribbon tied neatly around it. He started to cry heavily but manly at the same time and I started to cry with him as well. We both were crying together and our souls connected. Slowly but surely, he got down on one knee and ask me the following question. “Brittany Elaine Thomas, will you marry me?” He was shaking and I gently put my arms around him and I said YES! He looked at me as I was wiping the tears that were flowing from his eyes and said ” I couldn’t wait any longer and that it was the right time.” We call our parents right after that before anyone else knew.

Now that’s part one!  Part two was what was suppose to happen but he couldn’t hold it in any longer. We was over my sis house for our nephews 2nd birthday party. I went to the restroom and as I was coming out, I heard my song playing in the background. The song was “Grow old with you,” from the movie, The WeddingSinger which is one of my favorite movies. As I walk into the living room my nephew Kyran said “I found this,” and gave me a ring. When I turned around Zach was right there, got down on one knee and said “Will you do me the honor in becoming my wife,” and I said YES, once again.

People fall in love with the “idea,” versus the reality. Having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., is wonderful but the reality is that, it’s what you make it and that can be positive, negative or both. I’m not saying that falling in love with the idea of something is bad but when you fall in love with the idea and try to change a person, control them and their surroundings, that is when the idea is bad. When we look at social media, we see so many people showcasing their love for another person and as we are looking at those individuals, we might feel out of the loop and lonely and that is when the idea enters into our mindsets and that is when we fall head first with the idea of having someone to call our own or go to the next level with. When we fall head first with the idea and then get someone to call our own, many people try to create a life/relationship that reflects what they see in movies, celebrities, social media etc., and that can break your relationship. Therefore, don’t fall in love with the “idea,” of having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., just because you’re trying to fit in or prove something to someone because at the end of the day it can and will bite you where it hurts the most and that is in the heart.

What is real love? There are a lot of people that say they are in a relationship but tend to shut everyone around them off as if they never existed. Who does that? I’m I saying tell everyone your business? No, but don’t shut everyone around you off for someone that may or may not be there in the long run. I’m the kind of woman that want my friends and family around me and to know each other to celebrate in ones love and bond because me and my boyfriends love is a symbol of who we are as people and if your boyfriend/ girlfriend don’t want to know your friends or talk to them whether they are male or female, they are not the one for you especially when you begin to change for the worse. So what is real love? Is real love a wall you put up? Is real love when you close yourself from the outside world and focus on him/her all the time? Is real love when your significant other doesn’t trust you? Is real love when your significant other buys you stuff and that’s the only time you all really connect? What is YOUR real love? Because the relationship I see people in today isn’t real love but instead it is just a phase.

Love is the invisible versus the visible because that is where the heart lies. Happy Valentines day from our hearts to yours. ❤😄
