To say that my husband is my best friend and true soul mate seems far less of a definition to explain. Perhaps the words, "True Love" are the better fit.
For weeks we've been working non stop at our jobs and have only now just begun to rise above the demands and get back to the way we were.. In love, spending time with each other, sitting quietly next to one another and reading each others minds. Isn't funny how you can sit in a room with your true love and a word doesn't have to be uttered to feel the warmth of love around you?
This past Monday we had a mini lover's getaway to Lavallette, NJ and today I am still smiling about the retreat.. It was definitely one of the Top 10 days for me with 'him'.
An early morning rise while letting 'him' sleep afforded me the opportunity to walk alone around the beach to soak in the crisp fresh air..
Even the seagulls were greeting me "Good Morning"..
New pine cones...
And then some older cones..
An empty park bench but not for long as the visitors were strolling along..
My theme this week with photography was capturing people doing what they do.. While I could have spent the entire day at this task, here are a few that
The restaurant that we ate breakfast in provides characters daily.. this waitress apparently drew the 'short straw' for the day..
The lone lifeguard patrolling the beach..
Workers across the street talking in their language during a lunch break.
What do you make of this? It's a solar calamity if you ask me.. Yes, those are all solar lights in this front yard.. While driving by I screamed to my husband.... STOP and TURN AROUND!! You know those types of screams don't you?? Upon driving by I realized that the backyard is basically the same way. It must look pretty funny at night! I'll get back to you on that after I revisit the house during the middle of July at night.
What better of a way to end a Lover's Getaway than a fine fair?
What does one do when it starts to shower at the beach? Go Shopping!
My husband and I visited a store called "Globetrotter" and you can bet I'll be trotting back in the first opportunity I get.. The picture above is a spinning balloon that we picked up and is now spinning to its hearts delight in my backyard.
Meditation chains now hang in front of the house and the back of the house.. Between these and the feng shui bells I should be whistling Dixie 24/7!
New terra cotta balls with stars.. Can't wait to see what they
look like at night on my back patio..
And yes... here we are.. "Getting Back to the Way We Were"...
