Last weekend, a college friend of mine invited T~ and I to join her, her husband and their child at the beach. They were staying at her dad's beach house for a couple of weeks on a private island along the Gulf of Mexico. Within a few hours we made the plans and the next day T~ and I drove out to the coast.
It was a lovely weekend and exactly what I needed at just the right time--time with an old friend, a weekend away from home, time at the beach, sharing my friends with T~ and spending time in good company. It was just the right amount of time spent with good people, nature and taking it easy with no real plans. I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and free--things I haven't felt in a long time. And I loved sharing my friends with T~.
One thing that I enjoyed about the weekend was just being lovey with T~. We had an opportunity or two to go walking on the beach just the two of us. We had some meaningful conversations. I shared with T~ that I am tired of waiting to live my life and that I don't want to put things on hold until the rest of life catches up to be just so. We talked about us and our future and hoped next steps while collecting shells and walking along the surf. I felt beautiful, content and happy.
