"You've got to kiss a lot of toads before you find your prince."
I’ll never forget all my talks with my crazy, but such big-hearted Geometry teacher, Mrs. Green in tenth grade. I can’t believe that it’s been four years since I was in that class. I can’t believe that it’s been four years, and I just recently found my “prince.” But all that time, oddly enough, doesn’t seem like such a long time anymore when you find your prince. Every time something didn’t work out with a boy in my life, I could just picture her saying that to me.
All I know now is I’m soooo glad my toad kissing days are over. Now I get to kiss the best thing that I’ve ever been able to call my own. Jacob Anthony, if you ever read this, you’ll know it’s about you.
I can honestly say, 19 years into my life I have never been in love. So I would have no clue what love is, and I would surely not just throw the word around like most people my age or younger do. But I truly, wholeheartedly, honestly believe that I am in love. Actually, I AM in love. Every day he’s on my mind. First thought when I wake up. Last thought before I fall asleep. Every time he would do something cute, or if I would be leaving, or if I would be hanging up the phone I would always have to stop myself from slipping and saying “I love you!” I think that’s what made me realize. I don’t just say it to anyone and everyone. But, I feel the need to say it to him several times a day. And it makes me happy when he says it first, or says it last.
