To Celebrate Life

We're starting to hit the home stretch. In reality winter is coming to a close and spring is peaking around the corner. Georgia is super confused, 70 degrees one day only to swing back to the 50s the next, but basically, it's still cold and gray and we are feeling the bleh of winter. Whenever we start to feel too meh due to weather or too stressed due to life/work we try to take a step back and do something 'just for us'.

Aaron recently bought a couples book that we are reading through together and I so wish I knew the title or the author's name! (It's on his kindle. It's probably TMI anyway.)

On Sunday we spent *most* of the day just laying in bed reading, then we went to dinner, and went shopping. Sometimes we enjoy just wondering through the isle looking at things and not even buying anything, but this time around we had specific items in mind.

All we need now is some zen music. That can't be too hard to find, right?

Life makes love look hard....

Can I just say that sometimes taking care of personal business is really hard?  Finding out who you are and how you handle personal situations in response to others, kind of like that stuff you "have to deal with" can make your heart race.  I've sent two "clear the air" emails in the last four days, and in the last week I've cleared the air in an area of my life that apparently needed clearing.  I think it's possible I may have had a mini quarter life crisis, with a crashing wave of the last seven years of an emotional storm washing over me all in the matter of days.  Jeanne, you'll get to be privy to the written version of that storm next time I see you because you will understand part of it that no one else will.... ok well you probably won't understand one part of that part, but you will understand the part I'm talking about when you see it!  It's like in that Taylor Swift song "Mine" where she says "life makes love look hard"  Well that's where I am.  Seems lyrics of songs can always step in for me when life seems to fail, they keep me holding on like I'm not alone, even though I know I'm obviously never alone.  Anyone else with me on this??
