“I can’t wait to do everything we’ve planned together, and I can’t wait till you finally get here!” This is something I say to my husband on a regular basis whenever we talk, because that is the only thing to do when we’re sat 100 miles away from each other, just talk. If you follow me on Insta or Twitter, you will know that I got married in December in India (you can read more about that in this post). However, because of the whole immigration process, my husband is still in India (which totally sucks). It’s hard work and I’ve spoken about what it’s like to be in a long distance marriage, which you can read about here.
The only good thing that comes out of being apart is that we have so much time to talk, so we are always making plans. We talk about all the things that we want to do once he gets his ass here. One of the things we’ve planned is going to New York this Christmas (just talking about this gives me feels). If you know me, like at all, then you’ll know that going to NYC has been a huge dream for me since forever. I’ll admit it, a little bit of it is because of watching Friends. The idea of sitting around in a coffee shop after shopping around in Macy’s or Bloomingdales (and omg Sephora?!) is just so appealing. Am I right?
Going away at the end of this year is a massive thing to look forward to, but aside from that, just spending time with my husband is something I just cannot wait to do. Seeing friends go out on dates with their boyfriends/partners and talking about how much fun they had shopping at the weekend is when I feel really shitty about the fact that despite being married, I’m still in a way… single. I try really hard to stay positive, and remind myself that it’s only temporary, but it’s hard. I don’t hide my feelings from Sonu either, and I’m really upfront with him about it, which is really important when you’re so far away. I do stay positive a lot of the time, but I do allow myself to have those moments where I can be sad, and it’s okay to let yourself have those moments.
But, as I said, we make loooads of plans, and it’s the prospect of doing all these things together that keeps me positive (apart from the times I’m crying into my pillow and have blotchy red cheeks, yeah that’s not pretty). I cannot tell you how excited I am to just go out for dinner, Netflix and chill (literally) and you know, other couple-y things. I’m just eagerly waiting for the next few weeks to just fly by, like a kid
all of us at christmas waiting to rip open her presents.
I have a lot to look forward to this year, and I just cannot wait for Sonu to get here. Even if that means having to share wardrobe space (where will all my clothes go?) I think between the two of us, we could actually set up our own stores with the amount of clothes we have. I do seriously think he’s more of a shopaholic than me, I didn’t even think that could ever happen.
Once the waiting period is over, I can’t wait to share with you guys all the amazing things we get up to. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, make sure you come and follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I’d love to say hi to you all!
