This past year has been full of “firsts” for M and I. We’ve learned a lot from each other. I feel like this past weekend’s holiday (fourth of July) was probably our first holiday of complete and utter relaxation….and it was amazing! We partied a bit, laid in the pool together basking in the rays of the beautiful sun, and then went boating on wonderful lake up north with friends. I’m not quite sure the holiday could have been better. And as I told him on our drive home late last night after fireworks over the lake….I hope to spend all the rest of my 4th of July’s with this guy. As my aunt would say, I “hit the jackpot” this time!
