Hmmm…Is it the reconnecting or the wine?

Favorite song of the moment = For The First Time – The Script


“But we’re gonna start by drinkin’ old cheap bottles of wine…Sit talking up all night… Sayin’ things we haven’t for awhile….We’re smiling but we’re close to tears…Even after all these years…We just now got the feelin’ that we’re meeting for the first time”

I think this resonates with me because life gets so hectic that it’s hard to stay connected with those you love. For example, trying to have a conversation with your spouse about your day when two kiddos are vying for your attention is like trying to scream when you’re in the middle of the ocean scuba diving – nobody hears you! and trust me, I know! (more on that later).

Anyway, one of my favorite things to do after the kids go to bed is sit on our screened porch with the hubby, drink wine, and catch up on conversation.  Sometimes we even throw in an 80s music jam session, talk about our favorite songs and scare the outdoor wildlife away when we get into the groove and sing along.  That’s when I settle into the comfort of the familiarity of him, yet fathom at the newness of getting to know him.
