I started with three handwritten notes that he was to open as the date went on. The first he opened right at midnight on Tuesday.

I met him out at his parents' house because they lived closest to where he works. He got into my car and I drove off. He opened the second envelope while we were on our way. It was a sweet love note and offered hints about where we were going. He figured it out it had something to do with nature. I took him to...
The Morton Arboretum! It's a beautiful landscape with lots of amazing trees, bushes, etc. It has miles of trails. We went and had about 90 min or so before sunset, when they close. We were glad to have time just walking around, feeling romantic. It was amazing. We stayed until I got too cold, then we moved on. Here are some photos from the Arboretum.
|This is Easy trying to re-enact that scene from The Holiday. He turned around to see I wasn't chasing, but photographing.|
|This is amazing art. Just amazing.|
|This is one of my favorite shots of the day. I'm and air sign, so of course I love the sky.|
I really look forward to moving to New York. I know we'll be even busier there, but we will also have a likely easier time being able to spend time just us. No family and hardly any friends will be nearby. Not that I want to escape... No... I just want to spend more time alone with my fiance.
