San Juan Island

May 5th, 2013

My best friend and I celebrated our 12th Anniversary this week. My parents were in town and they graciously watched our three Jedi Knights, an Ewok puppy and 14 chickens while Charming and I took a day to ourselves. (Thank you!!)

We enjoyed a sunny day trip to San Juan Island and fell in love with the gorgeous farmland and sweeping views of the water. I saved Charming when I saw a bee in his hair while he was driving. And he saved me when the bee flew onto my shoulder and he whacked it off with a water bottle. Then he made me laugh so hard when he sang banjo music as the soundtrack to our little adventure.

Someday, I am going to write a historical romance novel set in this magical slice of heaven, with a Cousin Vinnie from Brooklyn who makes authentic New York subs that I can still taste.

And someday, Charming is going to buy a farm there. And pile up all of his rocks right in the middle of the field, just like an islander.

Happy Anniversary, My Love! You’re the best decision I ever made.

… And we had such a fantastic day celebrating with him!

Rebel troops, Jedi Knights and Princess Leias helped us defeat Darth Vader, destroy the Death Star (our first attempt at a pinata!) and eat R2-D2 while Star Wars music played and chaos rang out merrily.

Happy Birthday, Brother! You are such a treasure. Thank you for coming to our family! We love you with all our hearts.
