A few months later, they visited us again. This time they were on the brink of parting ways themselves, though just circumstantially. They have both found good jobs, Josh in New Mexico and Megan in Ohio.
They now share a puppy, Ben. He. Is. Cute. And Megan’s Canadian-Floridian-southern drawl voice kicks into high gear when she says, “Guuud boooiii Baaiin…” It is the sweetest thing you ever heard.
We urged them to consider using the farm as a meeting spot as they navigate a long-distance relationship. We’ve kept in touch a little via email since then, delighting in stories about romantic sky diving trips, for example, and gaining the blogging identity green light. But tonight will be the first time we’ve seen hide or hair of our new friends since that second visit. We’ll really miss Megan but can’t wait to see Josh!
