It has now been 2 years from the day we first met in person. We had communicated online for a while, but the actual meeting was a big, huge step. I cannot tell you how many times I almost backed out. I have no idea how I ever walked out my front door and made the trip that ended up with me being here in Maine.
This past week, I had a job interview in town so afterwards I stopped by Cafe de Bangkok and picked up Pad Thai. (This is sooo good!) I had never tried Thai food until coming to Maine. I don't even know if we had Thai restaurants in Rome, although I am sure we probably did. We also had the blueberry lemonade-flavored drinks from Smirnoff. (These are incredibly good.) It was quite a lovely dinner for quite the exceptional celebration.
