Things are going that great lately. I can hardly believe this is my life. :)
As I was taking a nice long, leisurely walk this afternoon around our little bay, I told Heather that through all of those long winter days, weeks, months at school, this is what I dreamed about. I literally would close my eyes and picture exactly what I was doing this afternoon. The sun was shining oh-so-brightly, glistening off the calm blue waters of Lake Superior. It was keeping us hot in our bathing suits (had to wade into the water every so often to cool off), I didn't need to know what time it was, I was truly relaxed, and I had this feeling of deep contentment.
Is it possible that life can be as good as (or better than) your dreams? Yes!
*Note to self* In January, February, and March when the school year is getting long, the days are short and I'm not seeing much sun or having much of a social life, remember this day. It truly was one out of my dreams.
