Let Me Tell You a Story

Have you ever had a day where everything that could have gone wrong did? That every situation you found yourself in just got a little more complicated and you simply felt defeated?

That was my yesterday.

After the world's longest day in the office, I was stressed and desperate for an escape. I left my office in such a whirlwind, that it was only until I got a few miles from home that I realized I left my person locked in my office... downtown.. a 45 minute commute away.

This is where I lost it. On any normal day I would've considered it no big deal and moved right along. Yesterday was not normal. As soon as I exited the highway my gas light went on. I had also planned to pick-up some kind of healthy dinner due to my fridge being pretty desolate.

The problem? I left all my money at work. Awesome.

So there I was, all stressed out with an empty car and an empty tummy. After thinking for a few minutes I sent BF the world's most pathetic text, and he called me right away. His first question made me melt...

"What can I do to help make this better?"

Luckily enough, he was having guys night about a half mile from my Weight Watchers meeting, so I drove over to get some help.

He promptly met me in the parking lot with a sweet smile and sympathetic brown eyes. Without a moment of hesitation he told me to take his credit card, fill up my car and get something for my grumbly tummy.

Well naturally... I started bawling. Mascara went everywhere, sniffles, the whole nine yards. The poor boy didn't know what kind of raw emotions and overly dramatic stories were coming his way.

But do you know what? He didn't try to offer advice or suggestions, he just held me and let me cry it all out.

I'm pretty sure his GAP hoodie is covered in mascara residue today, but I sure love that man. He is my sunshine and he consistently inspires me to be a better, kinder, more selfless person every single day. I am so thankful that he's my buddy.

Who is your sunshine today?
Have you thanked them for making you smile?

Thanks for being you, buddy. Love you.


  1. ::melting:: he's so sweet!

  2. Oh my goodness, I love this. I had a meltdown yesterday and Dylan just let me cry. Even though I was completely hysterical and slightly over-reacting. I don't know how he puts up with me sometimes! :)

  3. What an awesome story! What a sweet boy.

  4. You are one lucky girl!

  5. That's so sweet--sometimes you just need someone you love to hug you, and shield you from the world for a few minutes. Your boyfriend sounds awesome. So glad he was there to make your day better! :)

  6. What a generous heart he has. And by asking, 'What can I do to make this better?' is heart-melting.


  7. You are so very lucky to have that kind of support in your life -- and I am sure you know that already ;) I ahve days like that almost every day at work and have no one to count on to come through for me in a pinch...and it SO makes all the difference in the world to have that kind of back up. Very sweet post, thanks for sharing.

  8. What a sweetie!! Such a sweet text.

  9. You are so lucky! I'm so glad you have him in your life :)

  10. I cannot tell you how many times my hubs and I have had this same exact episode. He told me once that he expects a frantic phone call at least once a month ;). Lucky for you, you have an amazing man in your life!

  11. omg this is the sweetest story! so cute. i hope you are having a MUCH better thursday!! my fiance has been real supportive lately, we have been searching for the right wedding venue and a lot of places we love are too small which is v discouraging. he has been real positive and optimistic which is a LIFESAVER. hooray to amazing men. :) xoxo jcd

  12. This was SOOO sweet to read!
    My next question is...were can i get one of him??

  13. aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww! how sweet :)
    true love is hard to fine!

  14. Oh sweet girl, I am so sorry you had such a terrible day! I am glad you have a supportive and sympathetic boyfriend to hold you and make it all better :)

  15. That is the sweetest story ever. My boyfriend is not so much like that.

  16. Very sweet...Today is one of those days and unfortunately no BF to help. Sadly...

  17. I'm so sorry you had such a day, but isn't it nice to really see the sweet side of someone come out. How sweet of your BF to let you cry and give you his card for food and gas. He's a keeper!

  18. those days are the WORST, but so lucky for you to have him!

  19. What a sweet guy! I'm sorry your day was bad though- those kind are the worst! Here's to a much better Friday and weekend ahead... :) Hugs xx

  20. I know tomorrow will be a better day. Life throws those kind of days at us so we will enjoy the good ones. However, getting from you BF, (in my opinion) was worth all the trouble. HE SOUNDS GREAT!.....kt

    And, why don't you do me a favor and hop on over to and vote for my dog TOBY.......kt
