Aw thank you, you're all so sweet! Only 2 more days!

My mom, who I'm very close with, wrote me a long letter voicing her concerns and also giving her support. She's funny, including "when driving keep your eyes on the road and not on him" LOL solid advice!

Tomorrow I finally get to pick up my guy from the airport!

This almost doesn't feel real, but at the same time it feels like this was all meant to be! I've been reflecting a lot on how we got to this point. In 2015 I found myself browsing a prison penpal site after watching a marathon of the show lock-up. I wasn't planning to write anyone, it was just pure curiosity, but then I found him and his listed hometown was where I lived! Turns out prior to his arrest he lived a mile away from me. Might sound cheesy but it was meant to be!

haha, I greatly appreciate the mom advice! One of the first things I did was print out the directions, always like to be extra prepared! Saw my therapist this morning which helped with the anxiety! Also, today I got pictures of my guy in the mail along with a sweet letter which just made me more excited to see him tomorrow!

UPDATE: Oh my! Yesterday was one of the craziest and best days of my life!

The day started off rocky....my car battery died! Luckily I was able to borrow my moms car and miraculously I did not panic, freak out, or even cry. Clearly I was just focused on getting my man, LOL.

After that hiccup, I drove to the airport with no issues, parked and then found where I'd be meeting him. Went to the bathroom a couple times, paced around and played on my phone to kill the time.

He had said he was going to call me before getting onto the flight but he was unable to so I hadn't heard from him and was just hoping he was even on the flight! His flight was delayed, so I was just eagerly waiting checking the screen that listed arrivals...until finally his plane landed!

I was waiting where I thought he would enter the baggage claim area...waiting and waiting, don't see him, oh gosh is this one of those MWI disasters??? My eyes are starting to water....then I turn around and there he is! My heart could burst seeing the smile on his face, he looks better than ever! I ran up to him, hugged him, he picked me up and kissed me, the spark we've had these past 3 years was even greater, it felt so unreal!

We held hands, walked to my car, he changed into street clothes, we made out like teenagers and then since we were pressed for time cause he needed to be at the halfway house at a certain time and I'm a slow driver, we didn't have time for anything else.

We got to the halfway house and I was allowed to help carry his bags in but then we had to kiss and hug goodbye. It was very bittersweet but thankfully the halfway house is temporary and in a way it's good for us to ease into being a couple in the "real world". Hopefully I will be allowed to visit him soon! I'm just so happy he is finally back in New Jersey, I love that man with all my heart, still feels like yesterday was a dream....gonna enjoy the "honeymoon phase" lol.

Thanks again for all the support.

It's just the beginning...to be continued

Yes our first visit! Weíre applying for special visits so will hopefully get a few extra hours heís been staying out of trouble and he moves up to phase 2 Feb 13th so at the very least weíll get 12 hours. Iíve booked my trip to fall over the weekend too so if we arenít approved or they canít do the special visits for whatever reason I can just attend the normal visits on the weekend. He had a chat to the ADW the other day and he said all going well we should get the Friday too. Fingers crossed! Now I have to try and find visit appropriate outfits that donít make me look like a potato haha. Iím tempted to just wear some nice sweat pants and a t shirt my first visit so I donít have to stress about that haha.

UPDATE:He has been at the Halfway House for 2 weeks already! Things have been going better than expected and I couldn't be happier, everyone around me keeps saying I'm glowing

He is doing great with adjusting back into the world after almost a decade of incarceration. He was able to get health insurance and got his drivers license. He has been to see the doctor, dentist, social worker, and psychiatrist. He has been getting passes to leave the hwh, and using public transportation. He goes to the library often and has been attending AA meetings. He has a cell phone now, so we are both enjoying being able to talk on the phone a lot more! He got to see his brother and mother, his mother will be helping him with housing. He is enjoying wearing street clothes, having more freedom and eating street food! Everything has been going smoothly at the hwh too.

Our relationship has never been better....honeymoon phase, but enjoying every second! Since dropping him off at the hwh, I have seen him 3 more times, we went on our first official date, he treated me to dinner. It's all been so surreal! He sent me flowers yesterday which was a super sweet surprise! This Saturday we have a date planned, we are going to the mall, bowling and out to dinner, I'm looking forward to it, I love spending time with him! The 3 years of waiting for him were more than worth it!

We are both happy and very much in love....taking it one day at a time...to be continued...
