life is good
Check out all those beautiful smiles! And check out that strange rabbi puppet! That may be what happens when I get together with my awesomely amazing friends.
I feel like I'm finally getting back on track with feeling genuinely happy. I've been spending some great time with friends (see above) and have been noticing a little spark entering its way back in my life.
There has been a lot of laughter around the apartment lately, and I didn't even realize it was missing until it reappeared. Paul and I are slowly making our way through grieving the loss of a good friend, and though the grief is still present, it doesn't feel quite as heavy as it did a few months ago. And now that we're living on our own, it feels like we're rediscovering how much we enjoy being together. Hello second honeymoon! In the future we'll call this phase in our lives "how Mary and Paul got their groove back."
We've been sticking to our weekly date nights, hanging out with local friends, making future travel plans, and watching a lot of comedies. It's been fantastic. I've said no to watching almost anything that's not a comedy, because there will be plenty of time for watching serious and sad things, but now is not that time. The happiness and laughter we're sharing are the exact medicine we need right now, and I'm embracing them for all their worth. Isn't it great how laughing with people you love can make everything feel better?
Hope you have a great weekend!
