As time goes by...

Ashley and I aren't together anymore (he went back home to Wales, etc.) but I still wanted to make this layout about how I felt about him at the height of our relationship. We had a great relationship, and I wanted to remember how I felt about him while we were together.

You can't really see it here, but I scrawled a little message at the bottom of the brown strip of paper. It says: "Haven't I made this page before? I'm getting Deja Vu."

I have made it before. This is what it looked like:

The things I loved about him were written on a piece of paper in a pouch. This is what it said: "Blue eyes, honest, John Cusack-Look-A-Like, silly, different from everyone else, comfortable... and you always loved me, with no strings attached."

I love how some of the things that I loved about him were the same when we were going out for a month-ish* in Wales in 2003-04 and when we were going out for several months this past year when he was in Chico. There are definite similarities, but the way I felt about him deepend the second time around. I guess that's what happens with age, and with more time to explore a relationship.

*A month-ish isn't very long. We were chicken, involved in drama, and we had crappy timing. Let's leave it at that.
