When Bae Comes to Play

As some of you know, my partner and I don’t get the privilege of being together often. We met while he was going to high school in the U.S. while his sister was on a student visa.  We fell in love while he was in the U.S. on a student visa for grad school.  His Student visas expired in 2012 and we have been trying to get on the same continent, and maybe some day, country, ever since.

 

This last year we went 8 months without seeing each other.  I am so grateful he is a well seasoned flyer as it allowed him to take a week of vacation to fly from Dubai to the U.S. for a week.

He is so supportive of my work and nurturing of my creative side so he didn’t mind us spending a day playing outside and photographing some of my recent knit projects.

It couldn’t have been a more perfect Autumn day to frolic around the Roebling Bridge.

I look forward to my next adventures with bae when he returns for the Holidays.
