I remember back in March when Alex and I were driving home from a long day of trying to find One Direction in LA and it’s was a long drive back to the place we were staying. I had been texting Tucker for some time and he had told me that was had to stay up late to work on stuff for church and how tired he was. I asked him if he wanted me to call him to help keep him up. He said sure and I called him and at first I remember being almost flustered by his accent. It’s not a strong accent but you can still hear it especially on certain words he said. We ended up talking for TWO HOURS as Alex drove through LA traffic. Alex and I nonchalantly told Tucker to come out to California to hang out and go to Disneyland. I wasn’t ever sure if he actually would. But I secretly realllllly wanted him to.
Not long after that we started skyping and facetiming all the time. We spent hours and hours talking and watching movies together and staying up all night and falling asleep on each other even with the 3 hours time difference. And we just fell into each other. It seemed weird because we met over Tumblr, but it never felt weird. It always felt right.
Then we started planning our trip. The flight, San Francisco, the aquarium, Six Flags, Disneyland, the works. We started counting down the days. First it was 4 months, 3 months, 2 months, 1 month, 3 weeks, 2 weeks, 1 week, and now it’s 1 day. Only 1 day…. It’s so weird but exhilarating. We’ve been waiting all this time and now tomorrow we’ll get to meet each other in the airport and finally be together.
Let’s also think about how Tucker has never been on an airplane. He’s told me that he’s scared shitless about being on a plane but he’s doing it for me. He’s flying across the country for me…
I couldn’t be anymore excited to finally see him in the flesh and be able to look at his cute face and hug him and kiss him so hard. To be able to hold his hand, spend time with him, cuddle with him, travel with him, to do everything we talked about, and show him my life here. I’m excited to see what he has to say about everything. I’m going to be so nice to have him by my side instead of having to FaceTime, or call, or text him.
Thank you guys for being so supportive. I have never been so happy, and now we just wait for tomorrow.
