If you follow this website, then you know my boyfriend was transferred to a city three hours form here, back in September. It has been a rough transition for both of us, after sharing our home here for two years, and seeing each other every day. We’ve done a lot of driving in the past three months, and we’ve managed to see each other quite a bit, but it’s not the same as living together full time.
He arrived here, yesterday afternoon, just before I returned from my golf lesson. We drank a beer, spent a little time in the bedroom, and then watched sunset at the beach. I cooked steaks on the charcoal grille, and we took a walk on the island after we cleaned up the kitchen. What a great way to spend an evening.
Tonight will be a special evening, as well. Each year, as a Christmas gift, I take my partner and three of my best friends from childhood, out for dinner at a nice restaurant. We’ll drink wine, snack on appetizers, and dine on the best seafood our island offers. This is something I really enjoy doing, as there’s nothing I can buy my friends that they don’t already have. It’s the type of giving I think Christmas is all about.
Can you believe I have a dentist appointment today. I booked it six months ago, not realizing my boyfriend would be living separately from me, and not knowing I’d rather being spending the time with him, but I’ll go get my teeth cleaned and wish my uber-cute dentist a Merry Christmas.
Enjoy your Thursday, everyone.
