Looking Back

Sometimes it’s funny to think about how much has changed over the years.

I remember how much I craved the attention of my football/soccer-playing, track-star boyfriend throughout high school. I thought that if I was able to earn his affection then I had everything I could ever want.


Letting go of my high school boyfriend (who still seems to be stuck in a high school mentality to this day, who would have thought) has led me to finding what I was really looking for in a guy.

I learned that even though some boy is a football player/soccer player/track star/musician/church goer/whatever doesn’t guarantee that he has a wonderful personality to complement all of that… and that any guy with a bad personality isn’t exactly what I would call “dateable.” I also learned that I shouldn’t have to beg for any guy’s attention. And of course I realized that I wasn’t a bad person for letting go of someone who didn’t try hard enough to keep me around, especially when there were better and more deserving guys out there.

Dealing with some typical high school jerk wasn’t exactly my idea of fun, but learning what kind of guy I didn’t want to be with helped me to find the one that I do want to be with.


Ross and I had been saying all month that we were going to carve pumpkins before the end of October. Every day that we told each other “today is the day that we are going to pick out the the two most perfect pumpkins,” something came up that stopped us from doing so.

We finally decided to make our way to Walmart for pumpkins on Halloween night. Upon our arrival, we were told that they had been out of pumpkins for about a week. We agreed that we would get started on pumpkin carving early next year, no exceptions.

To solve our Halloween blues, we picked up a pizza and browsed Netflix for the most appropriate Halloween movies. We also got to dig into some pumpkin-shaped Reese’s peanut butter cups because it wouldn’t be Halloween without some candy.



Welcome to my blog! My name is Caroline and I’m a college student who makes up 50% of a hard-working couple. The other half is my boyfriend Ross, a college graduate who recently started working full-time. Just as everyone experiences new chapters in their lives, our current chapter involves working harder and seeing each other less. Since making time for each other is one of the most important aspects of our relationship, I decided to use this blog to show how we are still able to make the most of our free time together despite our busy schedules.
