Remember When…

I’m not THAT old and I haven’t been married for THAT long and yet I find myself falling into funks.  I was looking through some pictures today and found some that really sparked my insides.  I have been thinking a lot lately that I need a recharge.  I need to recharge myself so that I can recharge my relationship.  Oh gosh, don’t get me wrong…my husband and I are great, we always are, but I just sit back and remember the dating days when I had butterflies in my stomach driving to his place.  I remember the days where I wasn’t worried about how much work had to get done or what cleaning needed to take place, I just wanted to spend my time with him.  These days I find myself asleep on the couch, not working out because I just don’t feel like it, cleaning while he plays games, wanting to meet up with him later at a function because it seems silly to spend all day out when I should be doing other things.  What in my life is more important than us?  nothing.  Plain and simple – my house will be my house tomorrow, my laundry will still be there and I can sleep tomorrow.  What I can’t do is get back time I pass up, passion I keep inside and glances that go unnoticed.  The priorities in my life need to shift, and now.  

Here are a select few of the pictures I found today of the past four and a half years….

St. Patrick’s Day without….Guinness?

The grocery store has never been my enemy.  Even recently, not being able to eat gluten, dairy or many other items lining the shelves in the grocery store, I embrace the challenge.  Until yesterday.

I ran into the store yesterday for a few items and I almost ran out….a literal run.  Right in front of me is a gigantic display for Guinness and Harp beer – the (un)official beer of St. Patrick’s Day.  Bummer.  I am a lover of all things Guinness…t-shirts, hats, cupcakes, roast beef, beer…love.  Yesterday, my love almost consumed me.  I was overwhelmed with the idea that the lovely taste of my beloved would never again cross my lips.  I hadn’t even thought of this until now!  Sure, I have to give up beer – but my mind goes to Miller Lite because that is what is normally drank around here.  There are those moments, however, when Guinness is the choice and those days I embraced warmly.  A beer snob I will happily be for a day….or once was.

So long, Guinness.  We were such good mates.  You always treated me well and I hope you feel the same.  If you have any friends of the “non-yeast and wheat” variety, please send them my way.  Image
