I have had the best weekend.

Yesterday when Susan and I were together, we had a long talk about our hopes for our relationship and future together. One thing we decided is that we want to live closer to each other. My apartment complex requires 60 days notice if you are going to leave and since my lease is up March 1, I need to make a decision by January 1. Both Susan and I agree that we will not be ready to move in with each other by March, so most likely I would find an apartment half way between my work and her house. Moving that far north will mean I will have about a 45 minute commute to and from work, but being able to see my girl during the week will make it all worth it. It feels so good to be taking things slow. Everything seems right this time; like it was always meant to be. She is everything I ever hoped for.

Today I went with MJ to a Craft Fair south of KC. I have been called the "knick knack" queen in the past, so I was in heaven today. There were so many things I could have bought, but I had to remember how small my apartment is. I did find this amazing Dragonfly painting that would look beautiful in my apartment. Today it was half price, but it was still $300. Before we left I went and got the artists business card just in case I find an extra $600. They had the best caramel apples at this fair. The caramel was warm and it just melted in my mouth. I also found some Candied Jalapenos that are delicious. I bought two bottles and have already made some dip. Yum.

I was telling MJ today that because of her I have experienced so many new things in the last year. You might be shocked to hear this, but I have never been to a county or state fair. After visiting the Craft Fair today, I am going to have to make sure I make it to a couple fairs next year.

After this weekend I realized I have so much to be thankful for. I have great friends and a wonderful woman to share my life with. Life is good.

I'm glad you had a good time. I told you the carmel apples were yummy.

Good for you! I'm glad that things have turned out so wonderful. I love craft fun during the holidays.

Aren't those candied jalapenos yummy?? I found some here a year or so ago, and since then, I'm never without them! But a dip? You'll have to send me the recipe for that!

It sounds like a very good weekend. Arts and crafts fairs are so much fun, but I have to be sure I limit my buying ability by taking just so much money and no credit cards when I go!

I'm glad you're going slow. It is safer, yes, but the most important thing IMO is that you enjoy every moment more. You give yourself the gift of experiencing more of the small moments that are seeds for your future garden. Smell the roses, my friend. :)

BTW, re: knick-knacks, you and I have certainly contributed to each other's collections, haven't we? giggle!

So glad you go to go to the Craft Fair and so glad you met MJ. You & Susan have so much to discover together!
