My Six Month Anniversary Weekend in Photos

This past weekend was my 6 month anniversary with Dylan. I know most people don’t celebrate six month anniversaries, but this is my first relationship! All the “small” milestones are magnified to me. So, we celebrated by going to Smith Tower and Seafair.

Due to current general busy-ness in my real life, I decided to take a break from writing this week. However, I still want to share my anniversary weekend activities with you, my followers, so I can maintain that balance of staying connected both on line and in the present moment.

Let me start this off with a bit about how I experienced Seattle before moving back to LA two years ago. I want to admit the things that were hard for me, as most of my friends and family heard me go on and on about them. Few worry about my return due to some of these factors; but, I just see things differently now so I’m not anticipating the same “Debbie Downer” feelings I had before.
