So Austin COMPLETELY surprised me today.
As many ldr couples know, there’s good days and bad days. Some days it’s like you miss them but your life can easily go on, and others missing them just makes you sad all day long. Today was a day where I was just extra sad about him being away for no particular reason. I was texting him and telling him how I felt and he said “well I’d come up there today but I need to have money so we can do something when you come home in a couple of weeks” and I agreed. Later on, he called me and asked me to go look in my car for his ipod because he’d been looking for it and thought he left it there. I agreed and headed out to my car still on the phone with him. He hadn’t been texting me back all afternoon and I thought he was ignoring me so I was kinda sad about that. After I tried to strike up a conversation while he was on the phone with me and I was walking to my car he said “hey my mom is calling I’ll call you back”. So I got to my car to look for his ipod and I saw him standing right there by my car! I stopped in my tracks and just looked at him in disbelief. I was completely speechless, and it takes A LOT to get me speechless! He said I looked like I’d seen a ghost or something! We hugged and I cried happy tears and said that he was crazy. He told me that he knew I was having a rough day and just decided that he wanted to see me. We went to the park and had a picnic and watched American Dad in my dorm and it was just the worst day that turned into the best day. He drove a total of 4 hours just so he could make me smile and turn my day around! He is literally the sweetest and soooo much more than I deserve.
