Three guesses what this blog post is about… my wonderful boyfriend Lucas turns 20 today and whilst he will never consider himself an adult and probably doesn’t want me reminding him of his age but I’m dating an older man… and I like making that joke.
I could share so many awful photos – I’ve got bad selfies and photos in dresses and photos of baby photos but sometimes I’m totally astounded by how much I feel for this boy and I want to be able to look back at this post as the first birthday either of us shared and for it to actually be sentimental and cute and not ‘lol I’m embarrassing you’.
That and then he can’t get revenge on my birthday.
It’s astonishing that this boy (and all my uni friends really!) have only been in my life for five months – I feel like I’ve spent a lifetime with him and I forget he doesn’t know the people I know from home and he wasn’t there through my school life and he’s not seen me do so many things. But I don’t think it matters because we get to share new things together – we’ve gotten to see each other move out and live independently for the first, we’ve gotten to see each other start on the courses at university that will hopefully get us to where we want to be in the future and we could to start the rest of our lives together.
I don’t know if I can put into words how much I care for this boy and seeing him hit this milestone birthday is both an honour and a privilege (how pretentious does that sound?).
So happy birthday Lucas! I hope you love all the many, many cakes I’ve ended up baking (because I went way overboard and I really love baking and you didn’t tell me I was being stupid or weird) and I hope you’re as excited for MCM Comiccon London as I am! It’s going to be so much fun to go to my first not-YouTube convention with you and you know I think you’re adorable when you nerd out. I’m so excited it’s going to be amazing.
You’ve made the last 5 months of my life so much better than I ever anticipated them being – that first day where we watched Doctor Who together and got fish and chips from (what’s now become) ‘our’ chip shop was the start of the best friendship I could ever imagine and the most amazing relationship. I love you so much Lucas, I hope you have the best birthday ever.
