Ok. As promised above. Xs
Does anyone even say that anymore? But there is something about Fridays that's exciting. We worked this morning and then decided on a whim to jump in the car and drive to Saugerties where our friends Pam and Bill live. It's about an hour and a quarter away. We'll have lunch, laugh and catch up and head home before dinner. It's yucky rainy outside so that, plus the Friday thing, totally makes it a jeans day. I'm wearing Skif linen and cotton jeans, the same Sympli black top I wore yesterday :/ and a tie dyed and shredded cashmere Raquel...
here I am!
What's your morning routine? Here's mine. First I kiss my husband and the dog (in that order) and make the bed, then head to the kitchen. I'm still a Southern girl at heart I guess, 'cause I drink Diet Coke with my breakfast, which these days consists of reduced fat creamy peanut butter on brown rice cakes and some melon. Sometime I substitute the rice cakes for an English muffin. This is pretty exciting stuff to share with you, but it's what I do. Ok. Then I think about what I'm doing that day, check the weather in my phone...
Marriage is a Dance
Marriage is a dance and the choreography changes from day to day, week to week, month to month and year to year. The important steps are not just the ones you take towards each other. It's equally important to know when to step back. The most critical moves involve the thrill of twirling, the romance of turning slowly, the art of moving in the same rhythm and the skillful recovery after stepping on each others' toes. After all is said and done, the most meaningful part of this dance has to do with respecting your partner, lifting each other with strong support, and being there to help break or prevent a fall. Above all, never take your partner for granted. Always ask, "may I have this dance' - just to be sure you've both heard the music. And then, if you are lucky, the music never ends.
