Anywhere With You

When you first meet someone special, there is an anticipation of the unknown. What will the future bring your relationship? What actions, decisions, will either of you make to determine the fate of your interactions with each other? When I first met Tyler, I had all this apprehension and excitement. It eventually turned into something more, that something you can't quite put your finger on. It is a something that no words can explain. A few months later, in the summer of 2013, a new country song came out. It was the definition of summery: something you blare with the windows down driving slightly too fast. "Anywhere With You" is a song where the writer simply says, "We could go to all these places. I don't care which one. You pick and we will go together." The song made me realize what I was feeling. In my mind, it changed my young summer romance into something serious. And in the physical world, it made it something that will last forever. Six months later, I was engaged.
