Honeymoon Days

March 18, 2010

Shocking really, but the weeks between my visit to MN at Christmas and GB’s visit here have passed and we are reunited once again.  The past two months have been pretty tough in many ways – partly because it has been winter, and partly just because it was a LONG stretch of being apart and we have now passed the year mark.

We were a little nervous that things might be weird at first, but our worries were totally unfounded.  Things have been amazing and it’s so great to be together again.  Last night we were laughing about something – that hearty, abdominal laugh that you just can’t control – and it occurred to me that GB is the only person in the world with whom I laugh that hard.  I am a pretty happy person most of the time but even my close friends here have commented on how alive I have seemed since GB arrived for this visit.  It’s so true, part of me does come alive when we’re together.   I guess that’s what partnership is about.

It’s fun to be honeymooning again after so many years together.  I find it amazing how much we appreciate each other and all the little things.  Things we used to take for granted before we were separated are SO important to us now.  A quick visit to the beach yesterday after work to play a little frisbee and do a quick run workout was the source of a ridiculous amount of fun.

No doubt once I am living in MN and we are settled in our own place again these precious moments will become normal moments, and we won’t treat everything like it’s such a gift.  Still, I hope we can hang onto some of it for the rest of our days, and remember just how lucky we are.
