Yesterday was our 14th wedding anniversary. It's been a wild and crazy ride. I've learned a lot during 14 years. More than I could ever put on paper. But my favourite lesson is probably this (and i learned it recently):
It's ok to just be us.
Yesterday was a big day, I thought about throwing a party, I thought about getting dressed up and going to dinner, I thought about breakfast in bed, I thought about a new ring, I thought about a lot of things, things that could mean something, but don't necessarily mean anything.
Our day yesterday was filled with enormous amounts of normal stuff. Tuesday's are Duy's day off, so we often book things in that need to get done- and we do them together (- we recently downsized to one car- we talked about this for over a year and finally decided to sell my car and cut costs etc. After all we are Living Our Life on Purpose and having a car that I was paying insurance and gas for, for pure convenience, was a little insane at the moment. Will I have another car? yes... but for now this has worked for us)
So yesterday was filled with things to do. Starting with a trip to the dentist for the Mr (Oy!), lunch out with our dentist (she's our sister in law, and we love her), picking up prints, purchasing some frames for our silent auction on Saturday at our Fundraiser, having an ice cream, working out, having a friend over and going to dinner, me in leggings and the hubby in jeans. So ya, it was pretty normal. Nothing spectacular if I compare it to someone else... But if I just look at it for all that it was -in all of it's normalcy, It . Was . Awesome. It was an amazing day. I got to spend the day with my Hubby, we got stuff done, we laughed a lot, we talked a lot, and spent time with friends. Does it compare to other's who are celebrating 14 years, maybe not. But that is ok. Because I've learned It's ok to just be us.
So in all of our normal moments, I look for the beautiful, the fun, the laughter... In my morning cup of coffee, the mundane normalcy of a cup of coffee, I stop, I ponder, I appreciate and I sip my cup of joe and think... Mmmm Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven... then I make pretty things and share them with you... and think What a wonderful world we live in.
Share the love,
