So, it happened. I am a master of counseling.
The whole week was a whirlwind of goodbyes and farewells. I ate out more in one week than I have in any normal month of my life. I’m going to miss so many people so much, but it’s what happens when you live your life – it changes. It grows. You make choices. I’m happy with the choice I made. I woke up this morning next to my best friend.
We had a lovely brunch with my small graduation entourage and had a larger group that night all hit the town. So much fun and so much love.
Jesse also wins the boyfriend and partner of a lifetime award. Why you ask?
WE’RE GOING TO THAILAND!
I totally cried. I was in shock. We’ve been talking about traveling to Asia forever, specifically Thailand. I’m so excited. If anyone out there has traveled to Thailand, please contact me with any suggestions or recommendations for places to eat or must-do activities and sights.
We got home so late last night, but I walked into this adorable sign.
See what I mean about boyfriend of the year?
Today was pretty wonderful and low-key. I got delicious coffee and applied to jobs. I unpacked my bags and put all my things in their proper places. I made us breakfast. I took a deep breath of gratitude and appreciated that Jesse and I walked outdoors for a few hours without sweat dripping down our faces. I held hands with someone I haven’t had the privilege to hold at my leisure for some time. I gave Patronus some good behind-the-ear scratches.
I’m glad to be back to the life I know and I’m optimistic about the other parts I’ll discover in this new town. I’ve got a great companion to help me along the way.
