Today has been wonderful. Especially compared to last year. I was expecting it to be a little easier what with the little one on the way and the passage of the initial sting of last year. But I was still expecting a lot of rough patches as Ransom is gone and I am here all by my lonesome. But thankfully this was not the case. I have a husband who did not forget that today would come without him and the day before he left, treated me to four of my favorite things: Flowers, chocolate, a hand-written card...

Ransom and I went out last weekend for our last date before his departure to WA for the summer (he left this morning... arg!) It was a blast! Background- We grew up about a 40 minute drive from each other but didn't meet until we went off to Provo for school. In between the houses we grew up in is the Puyallup fair. Seriously so many good memories of Septembers spent at the fair. Ransom's family loved it too... which makes me wonder- had we met before? Anyway, even though we both loved the fair, we've never been in WA in September since our senior years of high school. We will absolutely "Do the Puyallup" again at some point, but until then, the Pima County Fair will have to do! It's a small fair as far as rides and attractions goes, but since we couldn't do the rides anyway, we spent a significant portion of our time walking the food stands until decisions had to be made. It was tough. But it was time well spent! I ended up with an Indian fry bread taco (Navajo taco) and Rans ended up with a beef brisket sandwich meal from one of those slowing cooking bbq places that sells ginormous turkey legs. We were very satisfied with our choices!
