Lucky in Love
Each weekday morning, right outside my bedroom window, two people come out of their garage and walk toward their cars. They look at each other and talk softly and kindly.
They almost always hold hands (unless they are full of things they are taking to work.)
They linger when they get to their cars...not wanting to leave each other. They talk of what they will do for dinner (he usually says that he'll stop at the store!) They mention whose birthday it is--how many days til the weekend
Then...Just one more kiss. Cute smiles....
They wish each other a good day and--almost simultaneously, every single day--look at each other and say, "Work hard and come home to me..."
I smile when their little ritual is finished. It brings me great joy.
I smile because it's me. And my boyfriend.
And I know that we are practically the luckiest people in the world.

A(nother) new home
Yep. For reals.
This will be my SEVENTH move in 10 years...and I could not be more excited!
We've found a home that we picked out together. A home where we can have lots of people over!
A home where we can offer a room for someone to stay the night!
A back yard!
A two car garage.
LOTS of parking for friends and family!
And, nearly twice the size of where we are now...
And a big kitchen for my favorite chef.
I love moving. Call me crazy, but the idea of starting all over is a JOY for me!
Packing up and going through everything and making MANY trips to Goodwill--I love THIS end of the move.
And then...unpacking to newly lined cabinets! And finding the right place for everything and trying NEW things and ORGANIZING...
Finding new ways to get to stores and work...
Figuring out what looks good where...
It's a new chapter.
A new start.
And, thanks to finally being on the RIGHT end of the real estate market, we will be able to buy the home without a loan. Cash. Paid for.
We're super grateful.
We'll be hosting a celebration very soon.

Now I sit and talk to this man. And laugh with him.
And cry with him.
And LIVE with him.
As much as I miss writing, I gotta admit--it was a good trade off.

If I could turn back time...
Fun with my friend of 38 years, Sonja...and some crazy memory jarring songs.

What would that vision be?
A bigger house?
A nicer car?
I don't think I have a vision that makes me want ANYTHING enough to RUN or JUMP to.
I'm good with all I have.
Am I missing something?
What am I supposed to be visualizing?
