good morning! it’s been a week since my last post, and a great week it was. a concert (one of our favorite bands, The Killers), celebrated birthdays with friends including a wine happy hour at work last Thursday, a fabulous dinner party at Mari Vanna on Friday night, bike rides, couch time, errands, and a healthy dose of Bird & Bee time.
every week has ups and downs, but the past week favored the ups. perhaps that’s just how I chose to look at things. I imagine every week can be up. it’s up to me.
our weekend ended with a bike ride up the West Side Hwy and around Central Park.
anyone who lives in NYC will tell you is that the park is so beautiful throughout the year, and it’s the perfect place to see and feel the changing of the seasons.
cool in the shade, warm in the sun. B on a rock.
I have a little obsession with these towers – the San Remo.

Billy and I are loving life. we just celebrated two years of marriage and our relationship is getting stronger by the day…the week…the month.
nothing is perfect which is perfectly wonderful.
we count our blessings and focus on the positive things in our life as much as possible, but we also feel the stresses of life, cry when we’re down, and talk through the struggles. we make it a point to regularly build each other up.
there are days (or weeks) when I think Billy is a saint for putting up with me, and I am so grateful for his unconditional love. when I’m dealing with anxiety or self-doubt, he wants nothing more than to help me overcome it. adoration, humor, tough love.
patience and understanding even when he doesn’t understand.
(thank you, B!)
a team. partners. working hard, having fun, learning how to be the best husband and wife we can be. best friends keeping the romance alive every step of the way.
I think about the future. I’m looking forward to starting a family. we both are. I think about babies often everyday. I also love the freedom we have to be spontaneous and soak up this time with just the two of us. I cherish every weekend morning when I wake up next to Billy and we have nowhere to go and nothing to do, but snuggle.
something about this past week – the balance of fun with friends, nights on the town, nights on the couch, the beginning of fall, the ounce of chill in the air, and quality time with B – was a poignant reminder to embrace this season of our lives.
so I’ll keep thinking about babies, I might struggle with anxiety and self-doubt from time-to-time, I’ll definitely keep having fun with friends, working hard during the week, and sleeping in with B on the weekends…it’s all part of this season.
how are you embracing the current season of your life?
