I can't tell you how ready I am for a new season. Because I don't know how it is with you, but he and I are just coming out of a very difficult one.
And, not to complain, but I'm really ready for something different.
Something a little sweeter and lighter and warmer.
Maybe even a lot so.
Because between caring for his parents and the emergency surgery for our special needs girl, it's been a tough season for us both. Family illness, financial pressures, and too many sleepless nights.
And although we've held on tight to each other through it all, we're tired and worn out and could use some time together with just the two of us.
Something fresh and romantic.
Something for him and me. Together.
So just the other evening, he grabbed me – in spite of my protests (it's late, we're tired, costs money, etc.) – and we dropped off the kids with friends. He then surprised me by walking into the new ice cream shop that had recently opened in town.
No, not ice cream. Make that gelato.
Bonta Natural Artisan Gelato.
Well, whatever you call it, it was absolutely heavenly.
Everything about it. The sea salt, dark chocolate gelato (yes, seriously) and vanilla bourbon pecan (yikes).
Two scoops. Two spoons. Two lovers.
I fell in love on the spot.
And I won't say with which – him or the gelato. Quite possibly both.
Just trust me, it was a very sweet evening!
So how about you? Ready to switch up seasons and do something new?
