Ever since we told him the big news Jonathan has been acting differently towards me. Maybe the fact that I’m going to be his Step-Mom gave him the confidence he needed to feel like I really am part of his family. Maybe he’s just going through growing-up stuff and it would have happened anyway. Either way, it feels important and special that he’s been grabbing for my hand, snuggling up, writing me notes, etc. Mostly though I just feel really scared. I know it’s taken a lot for him to trust me, and I just don’t want to fuck it up.

We took seven days to drive around the southern loop of Ireland. It was full of green hills, sheep, rocky cliffs, great food, little pubs with music, quaint B&Bs, rainy moments, sunny moments, rainbows galore, and all of the castles you could ever dream of. It was everything Ireland should be and more, and I got to experience it with my love who, on top of a mountain top, asked me to keep on doing this thing for like.. ever. So there’s that.
