Whoopsie! I’m behind on my own deadline. I have not been around my computer/the internet much in the last week so please wait til Tuesday and I will—forreal—post the story. For now, here’s a preview of what’s to come.
A narrow win for Thurston! For awhile Harrison was in the lead, but you Thurston fans rallied.
Gabriel looked deep into my eyes. “You’ve always wanted to get a lab, right?” he asked.
Yeah he is. I mean… ahem, the clothing. The clothing is. Yep.
By the way, the Vote Your Own LL Bean Boyfriend Adventure survey is now closed! I will post the story created out of all the weird things over 500 of you guys voted for on Friday!
Anonymous asked: I love your blog. I'm teaching in Morocco this year and these hunks are my nostalgia fix for Maine (woo liberal arts!). Two things to share with you: 1) Up in a tiny mountain town, in the bustling spice-filled marketplace, friends and I found ...a vendor exclusively selling ugly reindeer sweaters and flannels? 2) For january, I was lucky enough to be able to import my very own LLBBF from home. With him, he brought some dried fall leaves, a jug of vermont maple syrup, and flannels. What a man.
What a weird and great thing to bring through customs!
“Let’s get the canoe out and take a picnic to the island,” Peter said.
Anonymous asked: I don't know if there are any official foreign versions of LL Bean boyfriends, but my friend is dating one in the Austrian countryside. Your followers traveling abroad should keep a lookout.
LL Bean Boyfriends seem to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Life is so unfair! The search continues for so many of us.
There are 6 more days before I close the very special VOTE Your Own LL Bean Boyfriend Adventure (II) survey!
We did this back in January when YLLBBF hit 10,000 followers, and you all voted on elements of a longer LLBBF story. So now that you all have gazed upon all this flannel and hunkiness over a million times, we’re doing it again!
So… what are you waiting for? Vote!
“I think I’m going to finally get the grill out this weekend,” Daniel said. “It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to do that.”
“I just made some fresh-squeezed lemonade,” Aaron said. “Want to go sit on the porch?”
“I just brought the space heaters into the attic,” Thurston said. “It’s officially spring!”
