take a hike


Yesterday my husband and I did something new and different for us... Ready for it?
We were outdoor-sy! We went for a hike by a nearby lake and then drove a bit further for a sunset walk on the beach. It was a sunny, clear California afternoon with just the perfect amount of breeze. And I realized something: Why do we not do this more?? It was relaxing and calm, yet energizing and refreshing to be outside just the two of us. No phone, no TV, no computer, no music, no chores, no errands, no running at high speed through my never ending to-do list. Just peace. Just quiet...
Well, relative quiet anyway, I tend to chatter aimlessly. But we were together, really together. One may think, "oh you're married, you're together all the time." Not really. Life moves at such a fast pace and even if you are physically in the same place at the same time, oftentimes you can find yourselves far apart. An average weekend packed with the usual responsibilities and social events can fly by and its back to Monday feeling like we barely had any time to connect.
So this weekend was yet another lesson learned. Let's take the time to be really together. To enjoy the weekend, enjoy life and enjoy each other. Take a walk, take a hike.
