Ever had a moment that stopped you in your tracks and you just knew it was what you’d always dreamed about, that you were in exactly the right place at the right time? I’ve had more than a few of those with Peabody and another really great one last night.
He asked me to come over for dinner and we were just hanging out at his house. He was grilling and we were drinking wine listening to some of our favorite music. We talked all through dinner and cleaning up and ended up sitting in his living room laughing and talking for another hour while we reminisced over our recent amazing trip to Hawaii.
His favorite book is On the Road by Jack Kerouac. He’s been after me to read it and I just haven’t had time yet. Peabody told me he had something different for us to do and asked me if I’d ever listened to a book on tape. I told him I hadn’t and he said he’d been planning to read the book to me (omg read the book to me!! My inner nerd is still doing a full out swoon) but thanks to an eye infection he’s been dealing with that was sidetracked and he’d downloaded the audio book to his iPad.
We ended up listening to about an hour of the book while we lay on the couch and somewhere in that hour I was infused with such happiness and peace. I thought to myself, this is one of those moments I will always remember. In that moment, everything felt like what I imagined my life would be like when I was a kid. It’s hard to capture the moment in words but it was definitely one of those moments that give you pause and make you very thankful.
In other news, our trip to Hawaii was AMAZING. I cannot say enough about how great it was and what a defining moment in our relationship it was. We certainly found out we are great traveling partners which is good because we both want to travel a lot in the coming years. It was so great to see the girls and meet the Fisherman and Gwyn’s man. It was just a really, really good trip.
Since we’re terrible at updating the blog these days I’ll take the liberty to tell you if you haven’t followed us on Facebook, Jules and the Fisherman are getting hitched come September. Yep, Jules the girl who was so not interested in commitment has been totally swept off her feet and she’s going to be the first one of us to take the plunge. It was quite a sight to see Jules all giggly and lovely dovey I have to say. Seeing how happy she is makes me so incredibly happy for her!
Gwyn and her man are just so incredible together. You all know Gwyn is tough and I think this guy is just the right fit for her. I was very impressed with him and so was Peabody. He is a super star in the boyfriend Olympics helping her out, putting up with all of us, and hell he even sent her mom an edible arrangement for Valentine’s Day. Yep, he definitely seems to be a keeper!
Times are quite good for us girls right now. I’m even taking the first steps to finally go back to school to get my nursing degree. Big things are happening for all of us right now! I think we’re at a point where we need to decided the future of this blog since we’ve obviously changed track with it in the last six months. I guess we need to decide to either start a new chapter or if it’s time to finally close this book …
