Another month of 2017 has passed us by. Here, summer is upon us with long, warm days by the pool and watching fireflies at night. My daughter thinks that the fireflies are tiny little faeries and it is adorable watching her chase them in the evening. Of course, then the dog tries to eat them which leads to a bit of a meltdown but it is still adorable. Other than the first day of summer, June was a fairly productive month after I got over the reading slump at the beginning…

June included my fifth wedding anniversary! I got married on June 24th, 2012 in Groton, Connecticut. My now husband had just joined the Navy and he wasn’t permitted to live off base or given a housing allowance unless he was married. So, standing on a rocky beach looking out at the water on a sunny morning we were married with only the priest and my parents in attendance.
Now, to the part that makes me chuckle. The 24th rolled around this year and my husband suggested going kayaking on the lake. Sure! Sounds fun. So the three of us head to the lake and besides a small incident where my husband and daughter fell out of the boat we had a great time. I ended up with a horrible sunburn on my shins and ankles but it was still fun. The day passes, we come home, I’m making dinner and he STILL has not mentioned our anniversary. It was curious but not particularly odd as my husband isn’t exactly emotionally outspoken so I let it go.
My husband LOVES shellfish, especially lobster, but we don’t get it outside of special occasions now. Living so far from the water (I miss the ocean) it is just too expensive. When we lived in Connecticut it was cheaper than beef! So when he comes down for dinner and sees lobster he seems confused as to why. The big dolt thought our anniversary was the next day. I gave him a hard time but it was a good laugh. He went out to the car and brought in my present which was a new FitBit Charge 2 as my old FitBit Charge HR was literally falling apart. All in all, it was a memorable day.
Look at me sharing personal stuff. I never do that! But it was a really great day so I wanted to share it with you wonderful folks.
That is all for this month! I hope you all have a wonderful July!
