Check out my phone:
Simple. I am not a popular teenager, no one texts me but my coworkers and Scotsman. It meets my needs.
Scotsman on the other hand bought this last night:
To me it's pretty fancy, it vibrates, has a slider, sounds like fun to me. As we came out of the store Scotsman had a huge smile on his face, he was happy about his new toy, making me smile. But then it hit me, this is the first cell phone he's bought in America. It might not be a big deal to you, it's an everyday thing, but it just makes me think of how far we've come.
A couple of years ago we knew nothing of each other, he was there and I was here. He never thought he'd find himself so lucky to find this amazing Chilean woman who would cook amazing meals, keep him warm at night, and love the hell out of him. The same goes for me, I never thought I'd find myself a Scotsman, I like my Irish, but a hot-tempered Scotsman who works hard making beautiful gardens, writing nerdy blogs like me, takes care of my very needy expectations and loves the hell out of me, I never thought I'd get so lucky.
No matter how insignificant the improvements might be to the outer world, we're slowly but surely building our little lives together. Had we not given this crazy love a chance we would not be here, happy in love.
