We know we are blessed to be able to do this. It is a stage in our lives that we are embracing and enjoying. Our favourite place to unwind and talk for hours is this little pizza place.
We both like to explore. So we often head off in an undetermined direction and just wander. Sometimes we end up in familiar places. Sometimes we discover something new. This time, we marveled at the signs of spring. The water is flowing again and the snow is receding.
We can enjoy a calm Sunday morning brunch of chai lattes and frittata made of fresh local ingredients. And we can soak in the moment for as long as we need.
And when the day has been snowy and far too chilly to explore, we can wait until the evening to take a brisk walk around our little block. It is here that we can marvel at the mountains and the trees without obligation to call us back.
