My Life

Today I am grateful I’m living *my* life and not anyone else’s because I’m actually grateful to be me. Instead of wishing I was somewhere else, today I am exactly where I want to be.

I’m in a beautiful French Provincial stone cottage tonight with a fire roaring in the hearth that my girlfriend built. Most importantly, that girl is the love I’ve waited my whole life for. She’s the one I cried for when I was alone and the one I craved when I was not, and now we have each other my reality feels somewhat surreal. Beautifully daydreamilly surreal. And as the rain beats on the tin roof and the red wine warms my belly I can’t help but think that there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

And if that’s not enough ill get to wake up in her arms tomorrow too.

PS. She told me she’d marry me tonight!


On Holiday

Today I am grateful that it’s only one more sleep until I’m on holiday. Not a big holiday, just a mini-break for a few days at a cottage by the coast.

Just me and my gal, an open fireplace and a nice bottle of red wine.



Holiday Plans

Today I am grateful for my holiday plans. I’ve hit that mid week slump when I start feeling like a mouse in a mouse wheel, but having a mid-winter getaway planned is helping me push through it.

My girlfriend and I have booked a cottage for a couple of nights. It’s an old limestone cottage with an open fireplace and a seaside town not far away. I can’t wait to curl up in the sofa with her. I want to sleep late in the mornings and make her breakfast in bed.
