This is what they call happy.

In this blog, I have omitted, until now, one of the aspects of my life that makes me the most happy and excited: my sweet and ever so handsome boyfriend, Jenner. I like to sometimes refer to him as my manfriend, but he is not a fan of this term. I have wanted to mention him many times here and certainly several posts have been inspired by things I have learned from our time together, but I've been trying to figure out how to write about my relationship in a way that is both mature (even though I would love to gush, go on and on and use terms like OMG, but, well, that's just not going to happen) and honors what is so special to me. There's really nothing like a relationship to mirror the things about ourselves one cannot easily see alone. One of the many things I've learned through this mirror is that I am fiercely protective (sometimes to a fault) of my heart and often keep my cards close to my chest. I've also learned that when I eventually let my cards down, I can be far more ridiculous, silly and even joyful than I ever knew.

I love the picture I posted below because Jenner looks so funny and I look absolutely, unabashedly happy.
