It has been a long hot minute since I wrote last (literally hot – summer in Missouri is gross.) So much has happened! George and I moved to the cool (not literally – it is still hot) side of town!
It has really been the best thing for us. My old apartment itself was really great. It was not, however, in a great part of town. I never wanted to walk outside and everything was a drive away. Now I’m renting a house with my best friend in an old established part of town. This little gem of a neighborhood is right smack in the middle of all the good parts of my area. All the houses are older and have their own character and the trees are numerous and enormous.
It has been three weeks in the new place and I’d have to say we are developing a pretty good rhythm between me, George, and Ash. I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m LOVING it. We go to the gym every morning (same as usual) but now when we get back home we either run or walk the neighborhood. We go walking every evening. We have a Sunday night tradition of a movie and facials. Although we haven’t meant to do it intentionally, at least one night a week we cook dinner together. We seem to mesh well in knowing when each other needs some space and our equal love/need of tidiness works VERY well. And George, well, he’s adapting. 🙂
Last night we had a girl’s night of happy hour foodies at a local artisan place and watching Christopher Robin on the big screen. Even though I know for certain I ugly cried every single time Pooh was on the screen, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The movie was so cute and really struck me with how much we do change when we grow up. We miss the little things.
As Pooh says, “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” I totally agree.
TODAY I LOVE: celery and peanut butter. Ok, I really just love peanut butter a whole lot.
