This summer was absolutely the best summer in my life~
For the past three months, my boyfriend =Blazer-Flamewing
has been here visiting me (for those who dont know, he lives in British Columbia, Canada..and I live in Tennessee in the United states. It is approximately 2,764 miles apart.), when previously we had only been able to be together for 2-3 weeks at a time. So as you can probably imagine, this summer was absolutely amazing!
I wanted to recap for you guys some of the highlights of our first summer together. :3
Besides the traditional movie and dinner dates, of which we did a lot of x3, Derek and I enjoyed quite a few fun summer activities.
Number one? RIVERBEND! [link] [link]
Riverbend (for those who dont know, it is a week long concert with over 100 performing bands!) was awesome this year, though they have had better bands in previous years. The Charlie Daniels Band, famous for their song "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" played this year, and they were so awesome xD [link]
is a video of him C: They played right before the finale fireworks show, which was the longest and biggest fireworks show Derek had seen, which was an awesome plus.
OH and as a side note we all bought a bunch of fireworks for the 4th of July, and Derek got to shoot off some fireworks for the first time, he was so excited about that xD it was fun!
Another highlight was going to the AQUARIUM and the ZOO! [link] [link] [link]
Who doesn't love the aquarium or the zoo? OH and btw at the zoo, we actually got to see Einstein the African Grey Parrot who has become famous online and on TV: [link]
And then of course SWIMMING and CAMPING!! [link] [link] [link]
Had so much fun xD Halfway through one of our camping trips with my soon-to-be college roommate, ~reves-epanouis
, we went on a white water rafting trip, which was amaaaazing. I fell out for the first time, and that was my third time down that river too xD it was a pretty neat experience..luckily I didn't hit a single rock or anything :3
Anyway, those are a few of the main highlights from my summer with my Love. :3 He left earlier today around 2:30 to go back to Canada..so it was a very sad day for us both~ Its really hard saying goodbye after being together for 3 months, but at the same time we had an amazing time together and it was totally worth it. I'm just sad because I wont be able to see him again until next summer. We hope. I have to figure out a way to make the money to go and visit him..so I'll be needing to ask you guys for help again as soon as I finish the commissions I have left, which I promise will be finished before August 21st (the day I go back to college).
Thanks for reading
love you guys!
