Over the next 10 months I was able to visit Phoenix twice and Jon came home for my high school graduation party. When I visited him, it was our first real experience of adulthood--he had an apartment and had to fend for himself. While he was in class four hours a day, I would sit in his 85-degree apartment (that was with the AC on... I made it a point to remind him 500 times a day that 85 is NOT air conditioning) and picture what our lives would look like once we had both graduated. Before his class was over, I would usually cook dinner for us so that it was ready when he got home.
|first visit: May 2007, right after getting my Associate of Science|
|second visit: over my fall break, October 2007|
We daydream about going back and visiting. Actually, it's mostly Jon who daydreams because I wasn't particularly fond of Arizona. Too hot. But Phoenix was so good to us and I am so glad that we got to spend so much time together before we ever got engaged or married. I got to experience the wonders of Jack in the Box, try my first Sonic slush, and laugh with the one person who has truly ever 'gotten' me. I'm the luckiest.
