First off, I am so happy everyone is loving these Dustin stories. He’s one of those people that is disgustingly likable in person. Every day may not be perfect and we may not always like each other very much but we always love each other. And as cliche as it may sound, Dustin is my best friend.
Second, I’ve been noticing a lot of guest blogging lately and I think I might want to jump on the bandwagon! Dustin and I, along with my side of the family, are going on a family vacation to Playa del Carmen next month. We’re SO flippin’ excited, we need this vacation BADLY! Anyway, I’d love to have some “babysitters” for After ‘I Do’ while we’re going. This is how I’d like it to work:
- We will be gone from Saturday March 13th to Saturday March 20th
- I’d like to have a guest blogger for each day, Saturday through Saturday
- Rather than me ask, I’d love to just have people volunteer to me for a spot
- You can blog about whatever you’d like, as long as you mention how much you’re missing me, of course
And now for…
Needless to say that when we made it to our first year we were pretty darn excited. We took Saturday and Sunday off that weekend and made our way to Minneapolis. And it was awesome! We stayed at The Marquette in Minneapolis, had dinner at Famous Dave’s (their cornbread muffins are to DIE for) and then played around at the Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden (well known for it’s giant spoon and cherry).
This is going to get a little mushy and I apologize. But I used to fear that I would end up alone. I will admit that I can sometimes be very difficult to live with. I’m not sure I even realized that first year that what Dustin and I have is incredibly special. Our first year together showed me that I don’t need to fight to make the relationship interesting, that I can be completely myself and be loved, that I am in love with a totally crazy but sweet man.
And I am damn lucky to have him.
