The way my friendship with The Boss blossomed from childhood to adulthood is something that I really value in our relationship. We became best friends not through an intimate relationship, but our intimate relationship came because of our friendship. Over the last several years of getting to know each other, and these last two and a half years of marriage, The Boss and I have known where we stand on issues that are important to us, and we’ve talked in great detail about our dreams and goals for the future. But even though we’ve lived and traveled together for these past 29 months, this road trip (nearly 50 hours together, UNINTERRUPTED!) really taught me more about him, and about us, than I thought I already knew. The Boss and I tend to talk more about what we want five years from now, but this trip really opened up a new dialogue between us about our more immediate goals and how to reach them. We had more than our fair share of laughs while on the road, but we also had a lot of serious conversations about faith, family, and life as it is now. And though we have a ton of wonderful new memories after this trip, one of my favorite things about being squeezed together in a car for four and a half days was learning a little more about my life partner, and feeling the comfort and togetherness of being able to share more hopes for my future with a man who is already a part of it.
