She discovered her reset button early on & there were not many things that bothered her all the rest of her days just because of that. Story People
I suppose you could say I’ve been restless. Yet in between life’s recent derailments, recent vacations away from the insanity of home, and trying to figure out what to do with the rest of our lives, Alex and I have made a great effort to begin living. (In whatever moments are left to live).
The comfort of the familiar shouldn’t be taken for granted. As exciting as we get at the idea of getting out of Dodge (ahem, DC Metro), we love our home. Annapolis turns out to be a pretty cool place to grow up and I forget that. Since both Alex and I have summer jobs right in Annapolis, we’ve had more opportunity to enjoy the town recently. We’ve had Happy Hours with our friends (or just us), we’ve done quite a bit of window shopping (sometimes it can be a bit painful for me), and we’ve eaten out way…. too… much. Ask my waistline. When we first lived together, we had a perfect little apartment downtown with a perfect little walk to everything we needed. The suburbs aren’t as cool. It’s harder to get downtown. I’m glad we’ve made the effort recently.
In the midst of all of our angst and unrest, it’s been good to hit reset. To look around and appreciate our home. This is our home, for now. Life’s too short to hate your home, wherever that is.
