Hello! So, I’m back from our epic cottage weekend and I have tons to write about. It was wild to say the least, but honestly it’s definitely going down in history as one of the craziest weekends of my entire life. But before I delve into this past weekend, I want to back track to Thursday night because that was also one of the best nights I’ve had this summer as well.
So Thursday night after work, Adrian picked me up and we went to Han Ba Tang, and I was so so excited about sharing this place with him because it has such character and the food is fucking incredible. And he loved it!!! We ordered a bunch of things and shared them together, and literally everything was so delicious. I love that we keep taking turns planning out date nights and bringing each other to incredible food places or finding cool things to do.
After dinner, I told him to choose what we did next and he decided we’d go to a vapour lounge since I’ve never been before and I was so excited. Turns out, it was the lounge he used to go to before and there was also a UK candy store nearby, so we picked up a bunch of candy and headed to the lounge. It was so cool – we had to smoke the vape out of this massive bag like thing and the vapour was so smooth, we didn’t cough at all. And the high was so good, like this body-buzz you could feel all throughout.
We had so much fun – we watched some Planet Earth, and then we got out Guess Who and started playing. At the last round of Guess Who, we both chose the same person and we both were so in awe LMAO. We do that a lot though, our brains are in sync a lot of the time. After a couple hours of just mellowing out, we decided to head out because it looked like it was about to rainstorm really badly and we wanted to get home safely. But by the time we left, it had already begun to pour and neither of us had an umbrella.
He suggested that he could go run to the parking lot on his own and bring the car around so I could stay dry, but I told him it was totally okay and I didn’t mind a little rain. So we ran together in the rain and the lightning and thunder, and it was so ridiculously rom-com level cheesy but I loved it so much! He even said it himself; he pointed out how in rom-coms the female lead runs through pouring rain and magically doesn’t ruin her make-up or looked dishevelled and how he didn’t think that was real life, but somehow I was defying that and still looked amazing whilst being drenched by the rain. (He’s so incredibly sweet, I cannot).
But my favourite part? Once we got back to his car, instead of us getting in, he spontaneously pulled me close instead and kissed me in the rain. And holy hell, what a kiss it was.
After, he pulled away and asked me if that was too cliché but I was so happy that I couldn’t even speak so all I did was shake my head and smile. Once we eventually made it back into the car, I told him that I’d never been kissed in the rain before and that that had been my first time ever, so he’d knocked yet another thing off of my bucket list. I also explained that that was not too cliché because I literally live for cheesiness and I’m a walking cliché myself.
We spent some more time together after that and I’m not going to get into it in detail but I will say that after we were just sitting together for a while and we were just contemplating the nature of our chemistry. I don’t think either of us can fully comprehend it (at least I know that I definitely can’t sometimes) but we both agreed that it’s something else and neither of us can get enough of the other.
All in all, yet another perfectly amazing date night. I honestly don’t know how, but each date or every time we hang out keeps getting better than the last time. I think with him, it’s easy for me to be present – I catch myself staring at him all the time, just memorizing the little details in his smile or the way he laughs. I’m present in the moments he’s close to me, or when he’s kissing me. Maybe that’s a part of why being around him feels so good; because it demands that I remain present in those moments, in order to truly experience every magical minute of it all.
Anyways, that’s about it regarding that night! Onwards to this past weekend.
Honestly, all I’m going to say about it is that each and every time we all get together, it ends up turning into some kind of crazy adventure or insane shenanigans. But, we make it through those moments together, end up bonding closer than ever, and have amazing memories to show for it afterwards. It was a wild weekend filled with all sorts of different experiences, but all in all it happened exactly the way it was meant to and that’s that.
We all definitely had an incredible time and I know for sure none of us are going to forget this past weekend for as long as we live. And I’m so happy that this is my family, you know? We all have something different to offer, but it’s always so easy to be around one another.
So, the first week of July comes to a close already. This month, I’ve been given a ton of hours because there’s only me and Sharon working for the company mostly, but I’m hoping someone else will come on the team for the summer and take some of the hours to balance things out. We’ll see what’s meant to be!
I just want to take this moment to connect with myself and say this: I’m thankful. I’m grateful that I’m surrounded by such incredible people, beautiful souls and such amazing energy. I’m loved, I am protected and I am happy. That’s all I can ask for.
It’s going to be a great month! Summer’s always a wonderful dream.
Until the next time I write!
