How has so much time gone by since I posted last? Partly because my employer has cracked down on non-work related internet time. Not that I blog at work, of course.
In a nutshell: Brad and I got to go for over an hour long bike ride together. Sans kids. It was the first ride I have taken without towing - or Brad towing if we are together - since LB was born - over 2 years. I used to ride at least 3 days / week between April and September. Gosh, I have missed it. It just isn't the same when you have to worry about the well being of a munchkin or two behind you. The ride was great and it was also wonderful to feel like a couple again.
We rode along a local bike trail along a river that I used to take to work. I used to watch as the summer season unfolded and ended. The river would rise and subside again. The trees would be bare, then bud, then in full leaf, and finally turn color. The wildflowers would bloom and die. The trail would start off pretty empty, then fill with people biking and wading in the river, then disappear again as the morning became to chilly.
Thinking about the seasons coming and going and how our lives have unfolded from marriage through ttc to parenting too also made me contemplative of how time goes - moving so slowly while TTC and suddenly all too quickly. It also made me appreciate the moment I was experience, knowing it would end too soon.
Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between
