It's hard to believe that although I am only twenty-four, Donald and I have been together for nine years. I met him ten years ago, at the ripe age of fourteen and couldn't have even imagined all the experiences we have shared together by now. The story of how we met is something I'll share in the future, but the important part is how we spent our anniversary this year (just two days ago). With the weather being especially hot at the moment, we decided to start the day with a beach picnic at our favorite spot in Malibu.
We made our own sandwiches and shared a tomato salad, raspberries, and the best popcorn in the world with herbs. The picnic basket that we used has belonged to us for over 8 years, so we are quite nostalgic about it. It was such a calming afternoon that we wondered why we don't come here more often. Sometimes you have to remember to schedule rest days for yourself whenever possible!
As you can see we had lots of dessert- like profiteroles and chocolate bouchons! I felt so gluttonous. Afterwards we walked through the city at night, and then drove home to watch Amelie in bed. It was almost too good of a day, the kind that I can only daydream about at times. However so many experiences with Donald are special, that I should expect nothing less x
