Lillian and Camilla February 2020 Date Day

First stop was for fries to share, a butterfly cookie for Lillian, and giant vegan ginger cookie for me.

Second stop was a beautiful walk, with a final stop for a bit of window shopping. xoxo

I deeply appreciate all the love being sent Lillian’s (our) way. It may look like all is well in these photos. Yet, the struggle continues. Tomorrow will be one week out from me ruining her life (as she sees it), one week out from me making a decision in the best interest of her mental and physical safety. Things are definitely better than last Friday. Yet, it’s slow going.

Deeply proud of Thomas throughout this entire ordeal. A younger sibling who stepped into the role of an older sibling this past week. As much as I tried not to have the maddening aspect of this, along with the sadness of this situation leak out of my eyes and heart to him, it happened. And he comforted me. Thank you Thomas. I love you.

Lillian and Camilla January 2020 Date Day … (a little late)

First stop was a wonderfully warm walk around the lake.

She and I have had an incredibly rough day. One of the toughest, roughest parenting days I think I’ve had to date. Please send us love and good juju that she eventually understands and accepts the decisions I’ve had to firmly help her make today. She is not happy with me and is deeply sad … xoxo

Second stop was for fries for us to share, with a lovely heart shaped cookie for Lillian, and yummy piece of dark chocolate with pink Himalayan salt for me.

Next was Barnes & Noble so as to use a gift card Lillian got for her graduation. Last was a quick stop for a few more minutes of window shopping.

Thomas and Camilla January 2020 Date Day

First stop: We walked to Ike’s Sandwiches. I’ve been wanting to try this place as they have an abundance of vegan options. I mean, vegan Dutch crunch bread!! This is a photo of my sandwich, I think it was called a MacDaddy or something like that. Enjoyed with a side of fries. I was only able to eat half of it. Pretty good.

The almost all white photo is what we walked back and forth in. We had planned on going for a trail walk when finished with lunch, but, we were kind of wet (and cold) when we got back.

So … Change of plans, Thomas wanted me to play Deltarune. I did much better this time around.

Ended with a game of Monopoly. Love date days!!! ♥️♥️♥️

Thomas and Camilla December 2019 Date Day

A lovely walk to Burger Me where Thomas had a Train Wreck burger with onion rings and I had a veggie burger. Then, more walking.

I’ve been preoccupied with getting the Meeting the Authors website back up, so our date day was cut short. Hours on the phone and much frustration. It will happen eventually. Everything is backed up. Just need to get it back on the site. Thanks to those who have contributed towards the recovery fund!
