I'm happy to wake up well rested with my girl asleep in the next room and the kitties getting along downstairs.
Today we will relax. Who knew you could do that before moving to a new province during the holidays. But you can when you've been given an extra two days after hustling like a mofo.
Adequate downtime and processing time is my kinda heaven. Stressful crunches without time for self-reflection are my kinda hell.
Finally breathing deep. Finally feeling at peace. Finally have some time to sit with myself and words.
Yesterday was mine and Paige's first full day together since she got here a week ago and it was filled with everything I love. Heart to hearts. Lotsa laughter. Moving moments. Deep connection. Mutual appreciation. Genuine love.
I felt more grateful for the strength and beauty of our connection than ever before because of it.
We are awesome.
And through our process of coming back together in the sweetest way, and her genuine excitement to have me move in with her and show me everything in Montreal, my dread over moving in with her disappeared.
I started to think maybe we will be just fine living together. Maybe it will even be fun. Maybe our recent challenge deepened our connection and gave us that little something extra that we didn't have before. That little something that has given me peace about what's about to happen.
We are more ok now than we've ever been before and we've always been pretty great.
So for today at least, I'm looking forward to moving in with my girl.
I think we'll be just fine.
