But, I guess, it's true. I have been off on many adventures with this man in a years time. I grew up in Maine; spending my winters exploring the mountains of the Oxford Hills area and my summers with my face hovering over tide pools on the beaches in Scarborough. But I have never really seen the Maine that Dave has started to take me to; the lakes and rivers of the north woods.

It was an amazing time with an amazing man and I hold all those memories very dear. I accept how my life has changed .. or has it? I am with another amazing man whose friend calls us the "adventure seeking couple." And we are! It's just that now I am exploring the exotic lands of my own state and country with a partner who finds adventure in every day. I am camping on white beaches of quiet lakes and swimming in their silky warmth. I'm bushwacking with snowshoes up ravines of mountains in western Maine and rafting the white waters of the Colorado river through its Grand Canyon. I'm learning the different calls and intelligence of a family of jet-black crows who have decided to come to me when I speak to them.
I feel incredibly blessed for all this love, past and present. I feel blessed for all the adventures I have had ... and for all the adventures still to come.
