Meeting of the men

Today, I fly to see my love.

The early-ish days, hiking 

New Year's Eve, not quite 2012


And my brother who happens to live 20 minutes from where the Not Boyfriend is in training.


Last summer at the zoo

And my sweet nephew.

Earlier this year, clearly loving me best of all

Last weekend, waiting patiently to share his cake with me


And they will all meet for the very first time.

Ohhh, how will this go? How will I divvy up all those hugs? I'm selfish about my time and squeezes with all three of them.



Last summer

Lil E's not happy with me for going while he is at his dad's house for the weekend, not pleased this will all happen without him. 

"What do you think Uncle Seth and the Not Boyfriend will think of each other?" I asked this to distract him from his disappointment.

"Well, they both have glasses," he reasoned. "And they both are smart."

"Yes," I answered, expecting more. "There's that."

And that's all there is. Until I touch down and run out to see these guys, waiting for me in the humidity and sunshine.

So I guess that's exactly where we'll begin.

Have a great time! I'm sure your brother will love the not boyfriend as much as you do.
Have the best time!

Sounds like a blast! Thanks for sharing your experience!
