John’s birthday was last Thursday. My mom and dad took all three kiddos to the Reno airshow so we had the whole day to ourselves. What a rare moment!
We borrowed an older red Mercedes convertable from some friends and spent the day driving around beautiful Lake Tahoe with a picnic lunch and the wind in our hair. Besides the fact that it was a super relaxing day we realized something else as well…after 24 plus years of marriage it is easy to take each other for granted. Sometimes life gets busy, stuffy and cramped. Maybe you just need a little fresh air and a different perspective to realize that the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t an oncoming train, but a fresh view of what is ahead.
Take time to slow down and enjoy the drive.
