Facing Fears No. 1 (Finally Explained): Making this Crazy Kid…my…boyfriend. 
This was the last day I spent with him. The following morning he would be hopping in the car and driving across the country to his homeland where he would spend the rest of the summer working in an office, in a rainy city, drawing, sketching ideas for various architectural like things. 
Three months ago, and beyond, ask me, “Long distance relationship?” My response: Pointless. 
Then this goon comes along, shakes my entire life perspective, sits with me through my freak outs…every…single…one…calmly, and likes me more because of them, smiles and replies with simple things like “Where’s the faith?” and “Don’t worry” and not once do I feel he isn’t genuine in saying those things…and they work. His heart calms my heart. 
It’s gross and absolutely beautiful; I don’t understand a lot of it and it makes complete sense. It’s fast and the slowest processing clock I’ve ever watched. It’s three months and a friend I’ve had long before we met. It’s annoyance and silence and hang ups and two minutes later it’s I have to call him back and talk this one out with him - cause I know he’ll be listening, whether I’m yelling, crying, or laughing and he can hardly understand what I’m saying or literally doesn’t know the meaning…it’s this. It’s my first dive in, think about it, don’t think about it, pray about it a lot, think about it more, don’t worry so much, call him your boyfriend.
It’s a shooting star. It’s a confirmation from God through Him.
"I said, God, if you want to show me a shooting star, and give me a chance with this girl, that’d be really cool, and then I leaned forward and I saw a shooting star.”
And So I Said Okay.
It’s been difficult, the distance. It’s been raw and terrifying and at the exact same time it’s been completely normal and easy and joyful and wonderful.
And that is what it is right now. I don’t know any more or any less. Right now, I, Ashlee Elisabeth Lyon, age 20 (almost 21), living in Tempe, Arizona, met a wonderful, mature, goofy, understanding, forgiving, easy-going, adventurous boy named Matthew Caleb Wilson, age 23, (now currently living in Westerville, Ohio) and faced One of my Biggest Fears by becoming a girlfriend. 

Ashlee reading your stuff and how funny now you are a wife :)
