"Happy Anniversary!" a random woman and her husband whispered and winked as we boarded our flight. (They must've overheard the gate agent ask us about the reason for our trip.) It was the first time we had heard the sentiment said outloud in acknowledgment of our 1yr... and for some reason, the stranger's words warmed my heart as if they were said by a dear friend. I've been awash with good feelings and memories of the year as my mind would wander to December 4th of last year. A proper post of reminiscence will certainly come about next weekend but this trip was an early celebration of our first year as Mr & Mrs. A time to completely relax and let go of the world for a bit (although we must admit it took us a good 48hrs to really get into that groove of calm where reading and the sound of waves in the background felt normal). A string of days that let us have moments of just-us-ness. It felt like a planet of our own those 4 full days. Settling into conversations about everything under the sun that went on for hours or popped up for a quick min in the middle of the day---ones that have seemed to evade us these past few months as our schedule---but now given their ample time to grow into life ideas and simple wonderment. To take the word "busy" out of the equation and just be....
to be kids again and run around in the waves at sunset...
to take a midday sail...and swim with some sea creatures!
to enjoy the day and evening strolls on the beach (and even few puffs of Lee's cigar;)
and to fall in love all over again :)
Sarah: one part of a family of THREE with my husband Lee and sweet girl Morgan, simply wanting to chronicle the path I'm on and the path that will come to be. For now it's NYC urban mamaville where everyday is a new adventure! (Actually, just getting to the post office is an adventure.)
