Someone once said that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Although being away from Erik has been one of the most difficult experiences of my entire life, it has caused me to treasure, even more, every second I spend with him. He came to visit for the fourth of July weekend. Honestly, i'm pretty sure the amount of excitement built up in me when I meet him at the airport is one of the most fantastic feelings. ever. It was a short visit, but we sure made the most of all the time. We had some nice little dates at panera, our favorite local Chinese place, the pool and a few others. It was very special. Each time he leaves I have a terrible time saying goodbye, so I usually go get a burger and fries with Jess and Shan, then go begin a new countdown for the next time i will see him again! That new number is 31 days! (When I move down to VA for school.) I am so excited for the many more memories i will make with him in the years to come.
