Maybe I’ll never die,
I’ll just keep growing younger with you,
And you’ll grow younger too,
now it seems too lovely to be true,
but I know the best things always do.
Let’s pretend we don’t exist,
Let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica

Thinking about this past weekend makes me instantly blush, makes my knees feel a little weaker, my heart happier, and also extremely grateful for time spent with loved ones.
On Friday night I hung out with Justine for a few hours, mainly just chatting in my bedroom before we headed out to grab some dinner. We’ve been friends since 6th grade making her my oldest friend. I still know a few other people from 6th grade but I’d say it’s been a good 2-3 years since I last spent any time with them.
Saturday morning I got to see my family and even though we didn’t talk too much just a handful of words were enough to tide me over for a little while. I feel like I don’t see my family as much as I used to because I no longer work with my aunt and uncle (so I would see them daily). I feel family-time-deprived, but I text them as often as I think of them.
I also did a fair amount of reading (oh finally?) — and eeee my soul feels rejuvenated. Cue confetti throwing here.
On Sunday I did a little me-time jogging around my community before heading out on a hike with my friend Jessika and our Siberian Huskies. Spending time with my troublemaker baby was so much fun. He really got a second wind on the way back from the trail and it was nice seeing him get some really legitimate exercise. I think he napped for a couple hours afterward heehee.
And of course in between all my adventuring there was fun time spent with Daniel. I really reaaaaally don’t want to be the type of ~girl~ that turns into a gigantic puddle of gushing mush so I’ll abstain from using any romantic adjectives or adverbs here. I think real-life gushing is more than sufficient to prove the point of my affection.
But seriously one weekend full of personal time, family time, friend time, dog time, romantic/love time? Uh… I don’t think it gets any better than that.
