Ahhh, nothing like a little photoboothing to make ya feel young again. Mitch & I have about a half dozen of these lying around the house from our adventures. This was just a random one, nothing special… just a Saturday spent together. =) Those are my favorites.
We took Franklin on quite a lovely hike through the woods two weekends ago. The weather this spring has been touch-and-go, but we found a lovely day, just windy enough, to go hiking in the wilderness of Bloomington! It was an hour and a half of heavenly, earthy bliss!! =)
Mitch & I had a spectacular date night last night! I wore my pretty floral dress with my big belt and purple tights. I felt like such a cutesie lady! We went to Domo [a hibachi grill] to get some steak/iron in me, anemia be damned! =) We were the only people at our table, which made it extra fun. We made friends with the cook & had a really great time. The date ended with reading some Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire while cuddled up in our pajamas! Perfect date night.
Happy Birthday to my Mitchel! He turns 29 years old today… so close to the big 3-0!!!! =) I am so blessed to have him in my life. He is an incredibly intelligent, incredibly driven man and he makes everything in my life better. Couldn’t do it without you, love. Here’s to another year older and hopefully another year wiser.
-How long it’s been since we’ve washed our bedsheets! Icky! We’ve gotta make a big run to the laundromat this week!
-Franklin being exceptionally smelly the other day! Boston terrier farts are the worst.
-Sleeping owls. Aren’t they adorbs?!
-Watching The Walking Dead season 2 on Netflix! It’s sickeningly well-written and acted!
-Crocheting! My bobble blanket is coming along soooo nicely. I’m actually quite proud of it!
-Finishing ‘Life of Pi’ the novel with Mitchel! We read aloud to each other every night… it’s super romantic! And now we start on the Harry Potter series, since he’s never read it before!!
We took Franklin on a really wonderful and relaxing walk last Saturday! He really needed a nice, loooooooong walk… and Mitch, Mary, and I took the opportunity to be out in this lovely fall weather!
Franklin was loving the water [a first]!
It was great to be out in nature instead of stuck inside the apartment reading [although, Lord knows, I love that, too]! I love when we get in some “family time” with our baby boy Franklin!
Today marks the One Year Anniversary of our first date!! I know that to most people that doesn’t sound like a great feat, but to me it is. I usually get bored or tired of other people and their baggage and drama before reaching the one year mark. I’ve never made it this far with ANYONE. And it’s all because I was waiting for my best friend. Getting to share this with Mitchel is something I hold very near and dear to my heart.
I am the luckiest girl alive and I’m so happy that I get to share my life and adventures with a man who supports me and loves me to the fullest. You are already a part of my family and I can’t wait to see where this year takes us. I love you, Mitchel, more than words can ever truly express. You are my partner in crime, my confidante, my biggest supporter, and the only person I want to spend the rest of my days with.
