In September, I got engaged to the love of my life. He took me to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Half Moon Bay on a Wednesday, in the middle of the season.

Anyone who knows me at all knows how special and life-changing my time there was, so needless to say, the people who were there with me hold a strong place in my memory and heart. Will was no exception.Continue reading “I Would Have Stayed Up With You All Night”
