this weekend was awesome.
eddie flew in to town friday night. i had porkchops and sweet potatoes ready for dinner and we lounged while watching friends and chatting. it was so good to just see his face, hold his hand, and be content in the moment together.
saturday was full of running errands, getting food, and doing just normal life with one another before the cookout. we had most of my family over to grill burgers and hotdogs – as well as lots of tasty sides. it was excellent to spend time with everyone chatting, laughing, grubbing out. life has been happening lately and it’s been hard to get everyone together in one place. i think it was really good to have that time for eddie to have even more interaction with my family. after everyone let we picked up – got ready to lounge – and started a harry potter film; we ended up passing out not even 1/4th in to the movie in.
sunday we went to his church, swung by the house to get his things, grabbed jersey mikes and walked around the outlets before i had to take him back to the airport. it wasn’t so hard to say goodbye this time – until i got home and my brother and his girlfriend went back home, and i was alone putting clothes in the wash. it hit me then that it didn’t feel like home without eddie here, and i got all hormonal (thank you mother nature) and started crying. it was delightful. and all i wanted to do was eat copious amounts of chocolate and not move. i’m so thankful i’ll be seeing him again in just over 2 weeks!
to anyone else these pictures may be boring.
they aren’t quality – there are some fuzzy areas, and the lighting was just falling.
but it was a moment i was standing there watching – my boyfriend and my grandfather – two very important men in my life, laughing and playing cornhole while the sunlight left for the day. i knew i needed to capture it, just to have and to look at and to remember a night full of family and good times.
