"The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end"
{Benjamin Diraeli}

This quote struck a chord when I found it browsing blogs. As happy as I am today, and let me tell you, I'm one happy girl with my Guy, it took me a long time to get over my first love. We were in a 5 1/2 year relationship that was ridiculously happy and ended without either of us really truly understanding why. I can only be thankful for that relationship because it shaped who I am today and prepared me for the love I have now.

Every relationship that I have been in has been nothing short of a learning experience. If it weren't for those guys I wouldn't have the healthy and amazing relationship that I enjoy now. :)

aww that's so sweet. i think so many people can relate. it's so great when you can look back and not feel sad, but grateful for what you learned from it and how it shaped you into what you are today.
