S if for Second Chances

Meet Travis.
The boy I dated briefly and broke things off with.
The boy who took me back.
My thanks for this is unending.  When I realized I had made a huge mistake I waited painstakingly by my phone for the familiar sound of a returned text (December 22nd to be exact, I remember these things - ha!).  I thought if he still cared enough after 5 months that's all it would take. I was right. The moment he responded and I had a chance to explain myself I knew my life had changed forever. This time I knew we were in it for the long haul.

...and he came just the way I like them! Big (lineman big - my favorite type!), strong, red headed (yes, love this!), so so sweet, sincere, goofy, strong willed, southern, smart, and all mine!
Most importantly he believed in us since day one and he always has the right thing to say when the distance gets to be too much.
Our first ever posed picture together (just last month!) and this is the face he makes...
Love this boy!

Has a second chance ever changed your life?
