Although I met her on December 9th, 2018, it took a few months before we were able to finally get on to the same page.
We made things official after a harrowing day at the beach where the wind was whipping at tornado-like speeds and the larger-than-normal sand was pelting any uncovered areas of our bodies.
Dinner was nice though. I tried oysters for the first time. Our server was hilarious and reminded me of a young Kaitlin Olson. We ended the day catching the tail end of a sunset off the California coast above an array of rocky outgrowths.
The next day, she told me that she had just recently found a lump in her right breast.
It's been a bumpy ride, but it has also brought us immensely closer.
