To be honest, this week has kicked my butt, staying up late to finish projects, days full of meetings and not wanting to get out of bed to get Barton up in the morning (at the moment we don’t have morning help).
Last night, we had a wonderful time in downtown Raleigh, appetizers from a gift certificate we received, wine and chocolate tasting and stopping by our friend’s art gallery opening (Elise Okrend). We haven’t had a “date night” in a while, and it was wonderful to leave the work behind and just be with each other.
Today, we played on the back porch all day. Amazingly, I did not crack my computer open until tonight, and made only one phone call. I walked the dogs as the sun rose, wrote in my journal, drew with pastels in my sketchbook and listened while Barton read his newly finished poem aloud.
Days like today bring me back to center, a place of gratitude for where I am, who I am with and the work we are accomplishing together. After such a difficult week, this day of relaxation couldn’t have come at a better time.
