Hey you! I'm Tarah, the story teller here at TEP! I love my hubs, my Boston Terrier pups, chocolate chip cookies, epic adventures, Hallmark movies, Chick-fil-A nuggets, laughter, wind blown hair, and genuine souls. I'm giving you fo' Free! October for photographers is like April for ants.
I am SO excited to start up again and I have created a schedule and a weekly plan so I will have personal blog posts up much more regularly now!
Long distance relationships: a big ask?
For those of you who do not know, I have been in a long distance relationship for about 2. Alex and I jumped into long distance right at the beginning of our relationship so we quickly learned how to date and make things work even through busy schedules and being miles apart!
This is the most obvious, but SO important. Texting every day is one thing, but actually getting to see that person and hear their voice can make a world of difference. We figured out each others schedules and found it best to Facetime on Wednesdays and Sundays.
The best part about having set days each week was we made each other a priority and we would get excited about date night! Sometimes we would even make a list of things we wanted to talk about or play the questions game and we would end up talking for hours!
This always made me feel so much closer to him. It is a place where we can leave each other little notes, draw pictures, leave voice messages, and even thumb kiss by putting your thumb anywhere on the screen, haha! It helped us leave little surprises for each other when one of us was in class or at work! Anytime I would fly down to visit Alex we would look for new things in Norfolk to do and explore! We ate the BEST food, walked up and down streets of shops on the beach, and always made it a priority to try new things together!
Yes we had the occasional spend all day in our sweats and binge watch Netflix, but we really wanted to go do things and cerate memories to get us through the next chunk of distance that would come after I had to leave again! Also, take a LOT of pictures!

Letters may sound old school, but I can tell you there is absolutely nothing better than coming home from a long day and finding a love letter in your mailbox. Along with letters we would send the occasional care packages to each other too just to send a little love and make each other feel special! This could be anything from reading the same book, watching a wild game when its on, or having a show you both enjoy watching on Netflix.
You can plan what episodes to watch on what days, talk about the book when you are done, or cheer on the Wild together via text when they do something good! You can make it exciting, you can still feel close, and you can fall in love because WE did.
