It is a wonderful life ! Certainly there are hardships that come along our way, but there is so much joy to be discovered each and every day in some aspect of life. In this time of rejuvenation, I am enjoying the easy life. Long leisurely breakfasts on the porch after Emery has headed off to the office. I do feed him first though. I am embarking on a total makeover of myself. Spending hours at our fitness center, swimming, working out, etc. I have once again taken a deeper interest in what I wear, how my hair is done etc. Big plans are swirling around here on some renovations and redecorating. There are daily discussions on trips abroad, including in the next five years doing an extended stay in Paris, 3 months, or maybe even 6.
As we approach a time when retirement is not long in coming, we are finding that we are once again planning for fun adventures, as if we were in our 20's again. No real responsibilities, not the same level of obligations as when we were raising our family. The homestead life just does not call to us any longer. Life comes in waves of stages, you can learn to enjoy the changes or fight them and in doing so, you end up going nowhere. We are embracing with joy, the new freedom we have. Sa vie est belle
