Today we drove to Silverthorne and went to look at BBQ’s for our mountain home. Standing kissing in the seasonal section I said out loud “I feel so married”. I ment this in a good way. Here we were buying house hold items together. We had moved passed the dating, to the going steady, to domestic bliss. How did that happen so fast? We also looked at deck chairs. At first my fiance pulled out plastic Adirondack chairs. I had to disclose that I hate plastic chairs as they always look cheap and dirty. We settled on woven outdoor wide chairs and a side table. We even bought potting soil!
Those of you who are in longterm relationships are used to this. For me it has been a long long long time of being single and buying furniture for one. Now we are a family with our two dogs. I had a mixed feeling of bliss, excitement and relief!
It finally hit me, I was no longer alone, no longer solely responsible, we can share in everything and we can accomplish more together.
On our way back to Breckenridge with our SUV full, we stopped for a romantic walk by Lake Dillon. The ice melting in the 60 degree sunlight-8,000 ft in the mountains we walked along the beach, stopping to kiss. I love this area in Spring, a time of hope, a time of renewal, a time of new beginnings.
