Hi, I'm Ellen
Music = Sanity
Being Lost In Stereo for me is about not functioning well with the silence. Realizing things that should, or should not, be said or done. It's about playing the same song over and over until you've memorized every note. It's about rolling down your windows and not giving a fuck who hears whatever you're listening to. It's about this feeling inside of you that clicks into place when you hear that one guy with a guitar who's voice can melt your brain like butter. It's about not having any other way to escape your life but to put on your headphones and turning up the music. It's about the right songs hitting you at the right moment and being so fucking overwhelmed by everything that you want to smile or cry or laugh or punch a wall. It's about singing every lyric with all you have because you finally understand that someone else gets it, someone else does know exactly what you're going through. That's what music is all about for me. That's what being EllenInStereo is.
Haha, here you go. You hit the gold mine this time! I included a timeline of us in photos together….because I seriously adore this guy and it made me so happy to look at all these photos again. Hope you don’t mind. :)
We started out two little silly pies.
And then we met as those awkward 11 and 12 year olds
And then I started liking him back….and he asked my dad’s permission to take me to homecoming and give me my first kiss. I was 16 and he was 15. We were definitely awkward here. :)
And then he turned 16 and I turned 17 the next year :)
And then the next year when I turned 18 and he turned 17 :)
Then we went overseas together and we decided we knew marriage was in the future.
And then I cut my hair all off and turned 19 and graduated with my AA and went away to college
And then I figured out how madly in love with Ryan I was and came home and he graduated college and my hair started getting long again
And then Ryan went away at school and was poor and lived in his car for a while and I used to drive to meet him at Starbucks an hour away and we fell in love all over again in that little Starbucks and it was wonderful.
And then he proposed when he was 19 and I was 20
and then we got married on the most beautiful day of my life… only a few months later…..because, in our hearts, we knew we were always meant to be together since we were 12 years old.
and now we are married and it was the greatest decision we ever made.
and there’s is the beginning of our adventure together. (and if you’re still following me after this ridiculous overload of Chelsie & Ryan photos, I will love you forever :)
This is absolutely perfect. Makes me believe in Love again.
|me at age 12:||ew older men|
|now:||wow he's only 30?|
so on the bus this morning
we stop at a red light and this lady gets off
she goes about half a block down, and then we saw her freeze and run after the bus
SHE FORGOT HER ENTIRE BABY ON THE BUS
I love the use of the word entire as in she could have just left the leg of the baby but no she left the whole baby
so my mum told me that as a kid she would peel an apple and throw the peel over her shoulder, and the peel would take the shape of the first letter of her future spouse. naturally, i decided to do it and
i’m fucking crying
it says ‘no.’
it literally says NO.
oh my god
