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.


Look at me as though I’ve caught your eye for the first time. As if time and space were the only things keeping us a part. Look through my eyes as if they were the window to my soul, the story to your book and the foot to your step. As if dreams and thoughts were the only things keeping us a part. Look at me.

Why do we as humans rush life? We want to grow up fast, force love(and everything that comes with it), etc… We go through life so fast that we miss the small things which are the most important things. Yes, growth, love and everything in-between is great and wonderful but rushing and forcing is not. Patience and living life is what truly matters because when you look back on life you’re going to regret rushing. Life is not a race but instead a gift.


Expressing ones feelings is a must. Life is too short to be keeping ones emotions locked deep within, whether it be friends, family or partner. You never know when it will be their last breath so communicate, speak up, share your emotions, express!


Don’t look at another’s relationship and compare and contrast. Why is that? The reason is because not every relationship is perfect. We are on the outside looking in and only see what they want us as the viewer to see. So instead of looking at another couple, look at your own relationship because what you have another couple doesn’t.

Family is something that we as people take for granted. Why is it that we tend to show off, boast, take down, and cut off family or in other words push our family away but keep the boy/girlfriend, friend etc around. Yes, family can be difficult but look at it this way, you are a PART of them. We always say “I am not like them,” “I am different,” but look in the mirror, we are an extension of our family whether we like it or not. Family, is something some people long for and want, so the next time you bash, boast, take down, and cut off your family or certain members remember that at the end of the day family is ALL you have.
