After we went to get our lovely rings, we stopped by Green Tea Cafe for a drink to wait for my friends. They wanted to meet Andrew, and it was fun! Andrew ordered an Almond milk with coffee jelly and I ordered the mango slush. He enjoyed his drink, and the coffee jelly had a strong flavor, but I don't think it was caffeinated.
For dinner, my dad made a Southern French style soup called Soup de Pistou. It was filled with potatoes, kidney beans, peas, and bacon. Also, there is a basil paste that you spoon on top of the soup to mix in, which added a kick to the soup! It was very good; Andrew enjoyed this so much he had it for breakfast (along with one of my homemade bagels) the next morning! :D
Now, this is special. Andrew's favorite fruit is blueberries, so I wanted to bake him something with blueberries. I wanted to try something different instead of a tart or muffins, so I searched online for a good recipe. I then stumbled upon a recipe on
On Saturday, we were invited to one of my dad's friend's beach house at Stinson Beach for a barbecue. I was excited because I really wanted to show Stinson Beach to Andrew, since I have been going there since I was a child. The picture above is of a bean salad that Andrew adored. It was a warm yet cloudy day, and the beach was really lovely. We walked along the water and looked for cool rocks!
My dad took some photos of us on the beach, and they turned out really nice! It was so romantic and fun, walking along the beach with him~~ <3
Hopefully later this week I will go see him in Stockton to meet his half-siblings! I love meeting more of his family; that's really important to me. I want to bring them something delicious, so I am thinking of making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. The recipe I have comes from one of my dad's cookbooks and it is really good! I am so excited!
I really had a amazing two days with him. I am sad that it's over, but I feel very happy and excited about the future! To love someone and be loved by that person in return is such a gift, and I am so happy to have Andrew in my life. :) He is extremely important to me, and it's so nice to see him becoming a part of my family. I feel very grateful that I was able to share my life with him this weekend.
Love you sweetheart! <3
