My Sweetie and I officially started going out. For those of you up North, yup, we started going out on Canada Day. I basically said that we should be a "couple" on that day, just so it would be a really fun date to remember. Every Year, it's our country's B-Day. Every half year, it's the first day of a new year!
We didn't do anything too special yesterday as we are both broke-ass poor, but we did spend the day on the beach, finally baking in the long overdue heat and then at a friend's house in the town we both grew up in, lounging by their pool. It was a fun day of friends, pizza, beer and ice-cream cake - the last three were big no-nos on account of my lactose and wheat allergy, but what the hey!
We are going on a romantic-ish 3-day trip away next weekend to the interior of BC, of which I can't wait for. Dry desert air, wine tours, swimming in the Lake Okanogan, visiting old college chums.
I'm not going to wax on about my Rockstar and how much he has changed my life (for the better) and how I'm looking forward to all our days ahead and how lucky I am to have such a truly, sincerely amazing man. I'm sure you can get all that from my blog.
But what I will remark on is how quickly the year went! I mean, it seems just yesterday we were sharing our first kiss, and now look at us! It's freaking July 2008! On that note, didn't 2008 just start? What is happening to time?
Even though time seems to rush on as we get older, we still got a lot done during that time. Looking back now, though it seems like we just started, so much has happened over the last year.
