S: Joey & Emily's European Boocation
FC: Summer 2011 Boo Lovin' in Amsterdam, Paris, and London
1: October 8, 2011 Happy Booversary!!! Let me begin by saying what an amazing year it has been, and how I couldn't have imagined a more amazing boyfriend even if I tried. You have been nothing short of supportive, encouraging, loving, and caring. You mean so much to me and I have looked up to you since we first met. You are simply wonderful. I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for us. Happy anniversary! I love you so much. Hugs and Kissez! Emily Boo
4: You were such a sport despite three flights and jet lag. We explored every corner of Amsterdam on foot, tram, bike, and canal boat. I loved enjoying beer and wine with you at the local brewery under the windmill. I even miss our morning and evening stroll (or should I say trek?) through Vondelpark. The desserts in Amsterdam weren't too bad either, if I do say so myself...
8: Ahh, Paris, the city of love.. I'll never forget our days in Paris together. My favorite moment being our picnic on the lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower followed closely by sitting in St. Chapelle in awe of the stained glass windows, eating crepes, and strolling along the Seine. Those four days were the epitome of happiness, shared with the man that I love. What more could a girl ask for? Maybe one more pastry...
14: Although I was torn away from you to intern, you still managed to explore London. I was filled with jealousy and anticipation to hear about your daily adventures without me. At least we had the opportunity to be razzle-dazzled by Chicago, eat fish & chips, and make new friends at the local pub. Please mind the gap between the train and the platform.
