Where have I been for the last month?

I have been missing in action for the last month and this is where ‘big things’ in the title of my blog comes into play.

Less than a year ago Ryne (my boyfriend) was offered the opportunity to move to America to play Rugby Union and work. Of course he accepted the offer because it is an amazing opportunity for him to further his Rugby career as well as a once in a lifetime experience. He has some big dreams for his time over there and I believe that he can achieve whatever he puts his mind too. Ryne left to begin his adventure last week. Long story short I have been spending as much time with him as possible over the last month and being a bit sad that he was leaving didn’t really feel like writing any posts.

I have known about this plan for about 9 or 10 months so let me run you through my rollercoaster of emotions. When I first found out about this plan I had a moment of shock. I had been with Ryne for a couple of months and I was already head over heels for him. The shock only lasted for a second while my brain caught up. Then it was pure excitement for him to be given this opportunity. He had my 100% support from the beginning. As the months went on every time Ryne moving to America came up in conversation I would just feel so proud of him and all he has done to get to this point. I had a few moments where I was sad because I knew that I was really going to miss having him around all the time but I also knew that what we have can’t be changed by distance. The few days after Ryne left I was a bit of an emotional wreck, not because I was worried about anything I just really missed having him by my side. I am still missing him after a week but I’m also doing much better because we are able to talk regularly.

I am hoping to go and live with Ryne as soon as I can save enough money and navigate my way through the many visas available.

So that is an update of what has been happening of late. I hope you have all had a good month.

Have any of you had a long distance relationship?
