So today is my anniversary.
One year ago today, I was at Cedarville, anticipating the arrival of Matt. He was coming down from Toledo to see me. When I saw him, my heart just knew. He gave me a hug and picked me up and I just knew he was it. I walked around campus with him. Then we walked to the park and played on the playground. We eventually ended up walking back to campus and leaving and going to Chipotle and Walmart. It was in walmart that we almost kissed. We kept tickling each other and at one point we just stopped and looked at each other and we both wanted to, but Matt didn’t want our first kiss to be inside a walmart.
Then on our way back to campus we stopped at the Indian Mounds and went on a walk. It was there that he asked me to be his girlfriend and it was there that we shared our first kiss. We went to the waterfalls and we talked about him and his friends and how he’ll probably corrupt me a little bit.
We walked back to his car and then went to campus for a bit. I introduced him to a couple friends and we sat in the SSC and talked with everyone for a little bit.
Then when it started to get dark, we left and drove around, trying to find a spot to stargaze. And yeah, not much stargazing happened. Lol.
It was just such a wonderful night. He kept looking at me and telling me
I’m beautiful and stuff and I just was not used to anyone complimenting me so much. It was great. I knew he loved me that first night. He didn’t know it. But I knew it. And I knew from that first night on that this was something to hold on to. Just the look in his eyes. I knew.
And now it’s been a year since that night and we’re engaged and our relationship has done nothing but grow over the last year.
I love you, Matthew. See you June 13.
Your future Savannah Lynn Rybarczyk.
