PSSSSST. Here’s another story for you.
He heard about me during Ayyam-i-ha. (Feb 25-March 1)
Interested, he contacted me March 6 via FB.
We met up, as friends, March 8.
March 10 we hung out for 13 hours straight, during which time I discovered who he was and I wanted him to be mine.
March 12 I found out he liked me back.
March 14 we were exclusive (I was talking to 5 other doods then and he was meeting other people)
We talked on the phone, every night, those 9 days, 4-5 hours straight... it was such a dreamy blur.
March 23 was our first kiss and
After a day trip to Hood River, meeting his kids, his parents, and his brother, niece and nephew,
on March 27 he proposed to me. You know what I said.
March 1995 was when my mother left.
March 2018 is when I found my soul’s mate.
March 2019 has become the best month of my life, and there are not yet words to describe why, but just imagine that the caged bird is now free. That feeling. That feeling is indescribable. And he was there to witness my freedom.
Spring is a time of renewal. Things come alive after a period of death. My period of death just lasted longer than most.
It’s perfect how my life takes it’s cues from Nature.
And with the fire of the Fast, our marriage has leveled up ten fold. From the fertile ground of our test and difficulties, we have bloomed into flowers that have yet to have names in this world, flowers exciting and new and full of life.
It’s like Common said ‘I never knew a love, love, love, a love like this. got to be something for me to write this’
It’s like that Nayyirah Waheed poem:
she asked: ‘you are in love.
what does love look like?’ to which i replied, ‘like everything i’ve ever lost,
come back to me.’ Happy Naw Ruz, happy Spring, Happy Persian New Year, my loved ones.
LETS BLOOM TOGETHER YA’LL 🌸🌺🦋
For a moment, let's pause and talk about how glorious motherhood is. Since the 12th I have been dealing with a sick child or children. The are toppling over like dominoes. I currently have one on the mend and 2 down for the count. I'm on day 3/8 in a row of work. I've done nothing but play nurse from the moment I wake up until the moment I collapse in my bed. I.am.going.to.lose.my.fucking.mind.
