Not because I’m done going on adventures, but because my adventures can fall just as easily into “post randomly”.

Went to the ocean yesterday with my old boyfriend. We dated for the better part of 4 years about 2 years ago. Or something like that. It was a long time. A hard time. We had an awful breakup and our relationship was, on numerous occasions, compared to “running into a (brick) wall”. But that’s all over. Yesterday we went to the ocean. He was kind, he was attentive, he was sweet. Nothing like the man I had dated before. But, we’ve both moved forward in our lives. He lives hundreds of miles away now, and I am in the beginning stages of one of the best relationships I’ve ever been in. “Perhaps in another life, when we are both cats”... The ocean was so beautiful. We’ve seen it so many times together, but it never gets old. One New Years Eve we spent our midnight out on a rock that jetted into the sea. It was amazing. He took me to the ocean for my birthday once, too. It seems now-a-days that our friendship iteself is one big adventure. Just keeping alive the energy between us… And going places, seeing things… Our adventures never get old. I will never lose that big place in my heart for him. I hope he never loses that place in his heart for me. I hope our adventures last the rest of, at least, this life.
The Adventure of June 13th
He messaged me on a dating site, asking about local laws regarding something I know about. I didn’t think he was romantically interested in me, but answered him and asked him some questions in response. I learned that he was new to the state and lived 8 blocks from me. We exchanged phone numbers, but I didn’t think too much of it. Then I asked him if he wanted to meet for dessert (i was craving dessert and who the heck wants to eat that alone!). So we met up at a diner between our houses. I had banana cream pie, he had New York Cheesecake. Mine was delicious, he was disappointed. Afterward, we walked. And walked and walked. Walked around my favorite park, stared up at the stars together. Listened to music on our iPhones and talked about killing park ducks if they happened to attack us. We went back to his house to hang out and didn’t go to sleep til the wee hours of the morning. When I left in the morning I got a text saying “Miss you” about halfway home. I had never met someone from a dating site SO quickly, but, I’m glad I did.
I got to spend the entire day with my favorite momma-to-be yesterday!! Since she got preggers we haven’t had any one-on-one time, muchless an entire day of it. We ate all sorts of good food and went to two amazing art shows. We talked for hour after hour after hour. I’m so happy to have her in my life and so happy we got to catch up yesterday. Adventures with her are always the best.
One of my favorite friends is staying less than 2 miles from where I work and about 4 miles from where I live. I am SO happy to have her (and very shortly, her family too!) so darn close!! We spent the weekend together going to parks and concerts and festivals, it was awesome. Hopefully we’ll be doing much of the same this upcoming weekend :-)
Last week we went to the river. Waded in the water and kissed like teenagers.
Last night we stared at the stars through telescopes so big ladders had to be climbed.
He is quite fun to have adventures with. Plus, he’s very nice to look at while adventuring ;-)
