The first town we visited was Paonia, CO, and since it was Scott's first day here (and it was the 4th of July as well) we just hung out, walked around, took silly photos, kissed, and enjoyed being around one another. Paonia really is the prettiest town, so we had a nice time wandering down its tree-lined streets that afternoon.
We might have even fit a few outfit photos in while we were out on our stroll!
I was kind of obsessed with this alleyway, even though I was being eaten alive by ants.
Can you tell through these photos & my expressions how full my heart was? I certainly can! Being reunited with your love is honestly THE best feeling, and I was so happy to finally be together again.
Paonia has some of the most beautiful historic homes I have ever seen. It was so hard not to take a photo next to each and every one. Scott and I might have been a little camera happy as well this day (we didn't mind one bit though).
This little blue house below was one of our favorites in the whole town!
Our walk lead us into the town's tiny downtown area. The only thing open was the ice cream/soda shop, so we stopped in to drink Izze sodas and talk about our upcoming adventures.
After our short stop we took another little stroll, hand in hand, admiring all of the pretty old houses and talking about how thrilled we were to be together.
To say that I was happy this day would be a major understatement. I was ecstatic to be with Scott, and my whole world felt right again.
Have you and your significant other ever been separated for a long period of time? If so, how did you handle being apart?
