Hi everyone! I have been thinking about doing a series on the blog for a little bit now, and this morning when I was driving to work it hit me- I should do a heart to heart every Wednesday. I think I had this idea because last night Greg and I were kinda watching Northwoods Law and working on stuff. I was redesigning our blog and he was trying to secure a new hunting spot on the Mississippi. Then, it was bedtime, and we had only gotten to spend like 2 hours together, and we hate when we don’t get to spend time together. So instead, we just started talking about our life and how far we have come in the 3 and a half years we have been together. Also, we both have been putting a lot of pressure on ourselves, and we both needed to talk about that. It felt really good to verbalize to each other that it is ok to slow down sometimes, and that we should try and focus on enjoying this time in our lives instead of always rushing on to the next thing. We both are always focused on a million things which we love, but we do get ahead of ourselves !
Here are our takeaways from our convo:
- Greg said that we need to take another vacation in January- so yay! to vacation planning and having him all to myself with no other distractions!
- After moving the Pontiac and me immediately not liking it, I wanted to move as quickly as possible, but I am doing way better, and I think I just needed time to adjust to a new place. We think that we should at least spend a year here so we’re not moving again. Moving and adjusting can take a lot out of you!
- We are really proud of each other and feel so lucky to get to continue to build an amazing life together. I love a good talk that feels invigorating!
