This month marks the 8th year anniversary of when Damien asked me to move in with him…across the country. To mark this special occasion, I wanted to share our story with you.

We met in our early 20s, when we were both working at MTV in NY; me as a producer, him as a VJ on TRL. But it wasn’t until our late 20s, that we actually started dating! I was living in LA at the time and Damien was still in NY. We reconnected because he sent me a message on MySpace…ha! I guess it was our version of online dating. Messages turned into texts, which turned into phone calls, which turned into Damien visiting me in LA for a week. That week we fell in love and quickly knew that long distance would not be a fun option. We each flew once a month, back and forth across the country, until December of 2007. That’s when Damien asked me if I would move back to NY to live with him, until the show he was on was over. I said yes.

It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Though I knew moving back to NY would be tough, I also knew it was the only way to give our relationship a chance. Damien also agreed that once he was done with his show, we would move back to LA, which we did. A few years later we got engaged and married a year after that. He’s my best friend and a wonderful husband and I’m so happy I took the plunge with him.

There is no one I rather spend my life with. No one I rather be silly with. No one I rather watch a movie with. In celebration of our 8 years of living together, I’m wearing this Ever Us ring with two diamonds that represent our true love and my best friend.

Happy Moving In Anniversary Damien! 🙂
