I cannot believe it's been three months since I wrote this post in celebration of Ben and I being together for six months. It's crazy that it's been nine months since we became official partners in crime.
These past three months have been pretty tough. Ben's been back at home in Aylesbury, as he's been on summer holidays from uni (thank goodness he's back next weekend!) and I've been getting by in Kent. I've spent lots of weekends visiting him which has been really fortunate - if a little tiring - for me. I love spending time with Ben, it is my favourite thing to do.
1. We went on our first mini holiday together at the start of August with a couple of our friends and their son. It was beyond delightful and I think we all had a pretty great time. It was my first time properly camping and I didn't think I was going to enjoy it nearly as much as I did. The weather was beautiful, the vibe was super chill and honestly I wish I could have getaways like that every weekend. Positive days with positive people are the best thing for me. I got a little way too sunburnt and was in pain for several days afterwards, but it was so worth it. Note to self: take Ben's advice and wear more suncream next time.
2. Over the bank holiday weekend, I was up in Aylesbury enjoying a lovely break from work with Ben's family. My clear highlight was a beautiful day picnic-ing at Ashridge Monument. The weather was lovely, the food was fantastic and the company was, always, better than I could ever have hoped for.
3. Ben and I now have matching necklaces. They're so beautiful and we're so happy with them. His is black and silver and mine is a sort of rose gold colour and silver, and they're engraved with the words "I will always be with you". I wear it every single day and love it so much.
Benjamin Warner, you are the love of my life and the light in my darkest days. I love you more than you could ever imagine, my hero.
