Bill and I had an easy-relaxed and joyful time together in NYC last weekend. On the way to the city, we decided to only do new things together in New York on this trip…although this wasn’t very easy since we have some favorite old spots that we like to visit. Anyway, the reason why I came up with this idea to only do new things is because I wanted to create new memories for us. I wanted to focus on looking forward rather than looking back. Luckily Bill agreed so we went with the new plan to experience a new New York together…and it was perfect!
Something not so perfect though was that for a couple of weeks before our anniversary, Bill and I were off. It seemed we were out of sync. Life was rolling along and we were kind of tumbling along with it…and it felt terrible to be so out of tune with my Bill. This sort of thing doesn’t happen very often between us, but when it does, sometimes the disturbance lingers way longer than I’d like it to.
With these thoughts in mind I made Bill an anniversary gift using this shell that we found together at the beach this past Father’s Day.
Here’s a look at what the outside looks like after I altered it.
And here’s a look at the message that I wrote for the inside.
The message is about what happens in life…
…and it’s about how I want Bill and I to evolve and grow.
And speaking of growing and togetherness, Bill and I will be going to the Kripalu center this weekend to attend a Deepak Chopra gathering. For years I’ve been a big fan of Deepak Chopra and I’m excited for this opportunity to see him in person, but most of all I’m excited that I’ll get a chance to share this experience with Bill.
Wishing you growing togetherness also…may you be in harmony.
