Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Well here I am, back safe and sound and jet-lag free. I'd been hoping for a little warmer temperatures, but I'll settle for having my normal, drama-free life back. I landed in Paris Sunday morning, and C got up early to meet me at the airport, which I really appreciated. As some of you know, I'd been a bit nervous about seeing him again. Would I feel the same after such a long absence? Would he feel the same? But luckily everything was just fine. And he passed the Christmas present test by giving me a night in a château. I was actually really touched - finally someone gave me something with a little thought behind it.

It was funny though, because while I was gone, he told me he'd purchased a second guitar. And I was like "A second guitar? What happened to your first one?" There was a slight pause, and then he said "Well, I was hoping I could keep the second one at your place". And then there was a slight pause on my part. My brain raced back and forth between "Ack! He wants to start keeping things chez moi! It's too soon!" and "Stop freaking out, this is a good thing". The rational side of me won out, and I now have this hanging on my wall:
And he spent all of Christmas break learning to play a really lovely song for me, so I have to say it was a decision well-made. :)

Next thing you know he'll be wanting a drawer, a whole drawer*

All the best, he sounds like a great guy!

If a sexy guy wanted to leave his guitar at my place (and I mean, i'm just assuming he's sexy, if you guys are dating and whatnot) I wouldn't hesitate to say no! If he wanted me to clear out half my closet to make room for his clothes.. that's something else entirely :)

LOL - he is indeed sexy, but isn't a guitar just one step before having his own drawer?? Though I guess he did clear off a shelf at his place for me, so it'd only be fair...

Awww Sam!! That's so cute and sweet! The best advice I can give is that if it feels right, go with it. There's no such thing as "too fast" what really matters is whether or not you're both comfortable going at the pace you're going. ^_^ Andrew and I were engaged in less than 4 mos! It seems pretty ridiculous, but when something feels right and fits well, it IS right. He sounds like a sweet guy, I'm so happy for you! <3

When the second guitar was mentioned I had assumed one would be headed your way, without it becoming an overwhelming, "that's too expensive", gift. Do you get to touch it when he's not there, or can C and only C remove it from the stand?
