It is the day after the day after Christmas, and I am bundled in a blanket, perched on top of a bed, in a cabin, in the woods, and I’m listening to the sounds of birds and cows and the deep breathing of a man who may have had just enough Jameson to drink last night. And I am… what is this feeling? Content.
It’s too early for blissful. So I’ll curl up with content and watch the clouds in my coffee (thank you Carly) and think about the last 48 hours.
I’ve congratulated good friends on 2 engagements, 1 wedding and a divorce (which was the best of all the relationship developments in that group!), and then I considered the current relationship status of all the people in my life… I think everyone is exactly where they should be.
After all the wild swings of this past year, I want to take the still of this moment… the “content”… and encapsulate it. This snapshot will become a snowglobe memory of a time when all was just as it should be.
To ALL my girlfriends… I am more than content. I am happy that you have found new love, new hearts, said goodbye to bad love, rekindled old love, are basking in long-term love, or are planning self love. ❤️
I am raising my camp mug of caffeine and toasting to you!
