Adulting Sucks · Ancient History · Lessons Learned

24 years ago, on a morning just like this one, as the first fingers of sunlight streaked across the desert sky I was cuddled up next to my boyfriend in my bikini, his old Cutlass roaring down the highway towards a day of sun and fun at the lake.

Nothing better to do with the day than to find somewhere to get tangled up together.

As I drive in to work today I think about how different life is for the two of us now, and remember so fondly how wonderfully naive and easy life once was.

Life has definitely had its ups and downs, and I’m so glad that the sweet, silly and immature boy I once dated has turned into the strong, ¬†responsible and hard working man I married 22 years ago, but sometimes when the memories of yesteryear tickle your brain it is a bit bittersweet.
