My longtime partner, Ben, and I got engaged! Ben and I are high school sweethearts and we’ve been together for almost eight years. We’ve truly seen each other through some of the best of times and some of the worst. Ben is my best friend in the truest sense of the word - he’s the first person I want to talk to if something important happened, no matter if it’s good or bad. Being with Ben all through my early twenties has taught me a lot about commitment; people can change and you can still love them. People can hurt your feelings badly and you can still love them. I love all of who Ben is. One of the things I love most about him is that he nurtures my independence. He believes I’m whole all by myself, and I think that’s incredibly important in relationships. We love each other, but we also love being able to be ourselves, by ourselves, out in the world.
Ben and I took photos at home and at the International Rose Test Gardens after we got engaged. I took the photos via a timer - which I would not recommend, by the way! - but we had so much fun all the same! I hope you enjoy the photos!
Tell me about someone you love in the comments. It doesn’t matter who they are in your life, I just want to know about someone you think is wonderful. Love is the best, no matter what type it is! XO
