Here is my drawing of Justin. At the time of the drawing he didn’t have a mustache on him. I like his mustaches. So I gave him a mustache in this drawing.
On July 21st, 2008, on the sands of Leo Carrillo, I presented Justin with a notebook for his birthday (Thanks Amanda for this idea). We had spent a wonderful, love-filled summer together and now we were leaving each other for school and travel. We weren’t sure when we would see each other again but we were sure it would be a few months.
Our notebook went back and forth between Chicago, Winters and Lake Forest for 2 whole years! We filled it with letters, pictures, poems and mementos from our times spent together. Its nice to have our first 2 years documented and be able to go back and remember the emotion that was expressed in our writing. Our blog has become an extension of that notebook.
