Summer update!

(Me with three of my best friends at our favorite summer destination, Lake Okoboji.)

This summer has been crazy, I'm sorry for my absence! I'm really hoping things calm down for me soon, I'm ready to relax. I fear they won't though... in two more weeks school starts, which will make things slow down at work but I will stay busy trying to juggle my full-time job, two graduate classes, the nursing home job and.... a new boyfriend.

Yep. We made it offical. Honestly I think I could have continued going with the way things were for quite awhile but I think he wanted to make things "exclusive" which was really sweet to me. I spent the past four days at the lake and I really missed him! The day I left he sent me these flowers at work which I loooooved. I have never received flowers from a guy at work where all your co-workers get to oooh and ahhh over them. It was bliss. :)

I got back from the lake yesterday morning and had to go straight to work for about 4 hours. After work, he came over and cooked fish and corn on the cob and also brought this for me...

He said he remembered me saying I like the color blue so he bought me a blue rose! How did I get so lucky? He's seriously one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met!

I hope you guys are having a good week. I promise I will try to do better at keeping my little place on the internet up to date! In the meantime here is a picture... I need to come up with a better nickname for this cutie :)
