This picture was taken in 2009. My boyfriend and I were a new couple. I hadn’t told him that I was not a big fan of camping or being outside in general. We went camping a lot that summer.
The pigtails did not hold up very well with all of the outdoors, humidity and all of the weather that Mother Nature summons during the summer.
I have not been camping since July 2012. Lucas thinks I pretended to like camping until he liked me. Then I trapped him into being my boyfriend and now I don’t go camping anymore. I think it makes him sad, which makes me sad.
It wasn’t my master plan to pretend to like camping but it did work out in my favor a little bit. I really did enjoy camping for one summer. After that there was too much outdoors, bee stings, frizzy pigtails and hard ground with rocks in the middle of my back.
