My Boyfriend - The Honeybun (Part 1)
The picture is from when Honeybun surprised me last August with a second skydive for our anniversary. I stumbled across it, and it sent me thinking about how we began.
He and I share a mutual friend, whom I've known since I was 2. We'd all hang out together occasionally through the middle and highschool years, and while I always thought he was cute, my shy, homeschooled self would not allow me to talk to him much. Apparently he had thought the same of me over the years, but wanted to be a better person before asking me out. We went for years hanging out in groups together but never really talking much until May of 2016. Somehow he finally got it across to our friend that he was into me, and she (knowing me more than I know myself most times), realized we'd be great together. She got him and I to hang out more (I was still completely oblivious), and then that July I had finally saved enough money to accomplish a lifelong dream of mine - Skydiving.
When I told Honeybun about it, he apparently thought this was his chance. He bought his own ticket right away...
