Well, that's been true for me, at least.
This weekend my 'other half' and I went to visit my dad.
Thursday night we worked together to fix and pack the food for our journey.
He kept me laughing in the kitchen...not always my favorite place to be!
Turns out the food was pretty darn good and ended up feeding all of us for most of the weekend.
We enjoyed many lazy hours on the back deck at my dad's house.
Perfect weather, good conversation, a little wine...
and a random blue jay who hangs out in their yard and eats the cat food!
So green. So peaceful.
other half' 'better half' spent a few hours each day cleaning the yard
and trimming shrubs and moving heavy rocks.
Such a help.
Such a sweetheart!
My favorite part of the weekend was the long walk we got to take...
just the two of us.
I know how blessed I am to share the walks,
and the road trips...
the little moments
and the big events...
the laughter, the struggles, the victories and the joy
with my best friend.
With the one that I've loved since college.
With the one who, in spite of my "moods," always manages to make things fun!
Today's his birthday.
Tonight we'll grill out, hang out and stretch out together.
Like we do on most summer evenings.
On this tonight, however, we might just remember to be a bit more grateful than usual
that we get to
do this whole getting older thing
Joining Tamar and friends for
The Good. The Random. The Fun.
