This Girl Can Write

These aren’t flaws to me.
I’ll love these parts of you more
So that you can too.

—Chriselle

Please, let your guard down
If you uncover your heart
I will keep it safe

— - Chriselle

Fall, I am ready.
I won’t mind your long cold nights..
Love can warm my bed

— Chriselle

Just watched the pilot of Red Band Society and I think I have a new show that I’m addicted to. 😍

As a kid i spent a LOT of time in hospitals and as an adult I still do because of the weekly volunteer work I do at a local children’s hospital so it isn’t a surprise that I love this show as much as I do. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has to offer.

And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.

Intense shit.

My first love
was some insignificant boy
when it should have been
myself.
Truth is, I’m a fucking romantic. I’m difficult but I promise - I’m not boring.

What more could I ask
Your heart beats in sync with mine
This is all I want

— Chriselle

It still feels a bit unreal that several nights a week for the past couple of weeks I have been falling asleep beside someone who wakes me up with slow, gentle kisses… someone who splits a giant bowl of ice cream and sprinkles with me while we watch Sopranos and he won’t dig into the ice cream in his freezer unless I’m there to share it with him… It feels even crazier that we booked roundtrip tickets and an Airbnb for a spontaneous adventure next month…I’ve been so happy with him and I’m excited for all of the adventures we’ll have, both big and small. We think of each other when we wake up and before we go to bed… things are easy with him. There aren’t any games. I’m seeing him and he’s seeing me, and we make each other happy. We like to eat, we like to play, and we like to laugh. It’s as simple as that.

The biggest coward is a man who awakens a woman’s love with no intention of loving her.
