Feeling Grateful

our wedding cake topper
Do you ever suddenly realize a week has gone by and all you've talked about with your significant other is what's for dinner and how much laundry needs to be done? Or he/she is out-of-sorts with some wretched sickness and not in the mood for jokes or chit chat and then you feel a little grumpy too? That was kinda last week for us. I worked late a few nights, then Mr. Giraffe left on a fishing trip and came home a few days later sick.

But yesterday. Yesterday, Mr. Giraffe and I went for a long walk. The weather was pleasant (sunny with a cool breeze), moods were cheery, and the conversation was flowing. We talked about how this January will mark seven years of being together and how we want to celebrate. We talked about how freeing it will feel to have no debt. We talked about our ideas for vacation next summer.

It was nothing special - just a walk and some chatting - but it was something special. Two people, holding hands and reconnecting. Exactly what we needed :)


How was your weekend?

  2. That's exactly how I feel each time I go for a bike ride with CatMan. It just fills up my happy bucket every time!
