I’m sitting on the deck at the lake this morning, watching the most beautiful sunrise, enjoying a cup of coffee, with the love of my life. I mean really, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Sometimes I don’t realize just how much I need to “unplug” and get away until after I do just that. Sure, I’m on my phone and computer a lot, but it never feels extravagant or over-the-top until I step away for a few days. Tom and I came up here on Saturday, and it’s been a couple of the most relaxing, rejuvenating days I’ve had in a while. Stepping away from my phone and computer and spending some serious quality time with Tom (which, if you read this post, you’ll recall is his number one love language) has filled my heart and soul. My relationship with him feels nourished and my own mental health replenished.
I thought the weather was going to be total crap, so going into this weekend I had low, if any, expectations. Turns out, it was gorgeous. We dined al fresco, which is probably my number one favorite thing to do in warm weather. We explored a new running trail together, and even hit up the antique market (so many goodies on my Insta-stories). Then
we Tom cooked dinner and we watched what might have been most beautiful sunset of 2017 (I know you’re thinking it’s awfully early in the summer to make that claim, but omg – it was unreal).
I want to hold onto this weekend forever; to pause time, or even go back and repeat it all again. Moments like the sunrise this morning fill me with such gratitude I could cry. Whatever stresses or worries or difficulties in life, I know beneath it all how lucky I am to be living this life. (I’m just realizing – is this entirely too sappy? Are you like shut up Kira we get it you had a nice weekend? Are my single ladies all like quit rubbing your amazing and handsome husband in my face? Oy.) Whatever you think, I hope you too had a wonderful weekend, and were able to unplug for at least a little bit.
I’ll be sitting here, savoring the moment, for as long as humanly possible before heading back into the real world. I hope you have a beautiful day my friends <3
