mondays can be tough. hopefully this quote can inspire you to get started on a wonderful week!
i can’t believe that it’s august already! where has the summer gone? i can’t say that i’m too sad about fall temperatures, but summer is always so fun and carefree that i will be a little bit sad to see it go.
another of my favorite things about summer is the time i get to spend with jesse; during the spring and fall he is so busy with the soccer season that i feel like we barely get to see each other during the week and then weekends are filled with tournaments and games. this past weekend we got a rare full weekend together and decided to take advantage and take off for the hills (literally!) and stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast in virginia’s shenandoah valley. jesse planned everything, from where we stayed at l’auberge provencale to the scenic drive we took on sunday. i just relaxed and relished the time we got to spend together.
i think that there is something so special about when you know someone so well and are so comfortable in their company that you can simply be without conversation or activity. laying by the pool on saturday afternoon, luxuriating in our room’s claw foot bathtub (i took 3 baths in 15 hours), and driving in silence along peaceful country roads made me realize how thankful and lucky i am to have such wonderful love and companionship with jesse. this weekend was truly a blessing and i am so happy to have shared it with someone i care about so much.
