I gave her a playlist on a CD, and a pink journal to write her dreams in and also things for our wedding. I had taken what I remember from seeing her through my friend’s FB and then finally meeting her in July of 2012 for the words, and then songs that I listened to during the torturous part of 2013 before we finally got our timing together. Before we left, we made love, and were able to reflect on the holiday season and the time that we had with her sister who surprised the family with a visit. We had an incredible time with her listening to hair rock and playing Super Nintendo’s Super Mario World. It was a retro fest of love.
Her sister drove home on Friday–which takes about 11-12 hours, and afterward we cleaned out our pantry after I had brought my dog back from the dog park. We had to drive back to her kick-ass apartment and pack it. Her mother and her mother’s boyfriend are in GA and left their SUV, so we were able to basically get everything down to our house. I don’t think that there is much left, and we hung some shelving and got things into the pantry. It was a really busy day before we left to get engaged.
We drove two-and-a-half hours, and then soaked in springs until night fall. The first night was cloudy, but it was very nice. The stars were phenomenal the second night. We took a small hike today. I love her. I love being engaged. I love starting my life on stable ground.
