You know Alano and I have been dreaming many of the things that we’re doing now. And the life that we’re living now we’ve been talking about, dreaming about, and envisioning. You know, like “oh, I can’t wait” for years. So it’s just really satisfying. To be in a relationship that’s evolved and grown in tandem. With our lives, our careers, our friends, and our families.
