Today is Ryan’s birthday! I sent him a birthday package and he already received it. I actually made him a mixtape (or mixCD) with our picture on the cover and the songs are on point. I’ve never done a mixtape for anyone so this was very much out of my element, yet so sweet. I wanted to keep the CD for myself because it’s really amazing. Thankfully though, I have it saved as a playlist on Spotify, which I’ll include at the end of my post.
I just love how music really is a great companion. It has kept me sane this past month and I listen to this playlist pretty much every day. And I admit, some of the songs I included made me cry (blame Robin Thicke) because they really spoke to me. Even if I’ve heard them before, this time they took a whole new meaning because of what I’m going through.
When I last saw him he said he feels this has made us get closer and stronger as a couple. I couldn’t agree more and I can’t wait to see him so we can celebrate his birthday and mine and just life overall. I haven’t felt this way in a long time and it’s refreshing. Last time I felt this way I was 18 with my first serious relationship. Not to say my last relationship earlier this year I wasn’t in love, it was a different kind of love.
This time it feels timeless and so real. A love so unconditional, so deep, so precious, so unexpected, so breathtaking, so inspiring, so challenging, so worth it. Our energies are magnets towards each other. The other day my coworker said that the universe conspired to bring us together, before we even met. He said this after I told him that we always ran into each other in the hallways while we were at work. Funny thing is, the exact same thing happened with my first love when I was 18. We were always running into each other. What’s crazy is that he’s a Libra too, like my first ex. What is up with me and Libras always gravitating towards each other? It’s a mystery.
Then again, my birthday is close to the Libra cusp, so maybe I have Libra qualities, who knows. All I know is that Ryan and I are two peas in a pod. Let’s get to my playlist and you can enjoy my song picks for him. I hope he likes the CD 🙂 I also sent him face wash and face moisturizer. Ha! I feel like such a mom. Guys sometimes need nurturing though.
Have you made a mixtape for a significant other? If so, share in the comments below and any love songs you want me to listen to, I would love to take a listen.
