On my way to work this morning I called mom to inquire about her arrival at my house today to pick up my weekend houseguest. C's little buddy from way off spent the weekend with us and my parents are going to take him home. There was lots of conversation... blah blah blah... but what she says in the end is what got me.
Richard and I stayed with my parents friday night because we had scheduled a really late night with a big group of my friends and driving home at 3am just didn't sound too inviting. So anyways Saturday morning we hung around and chatted with mom and dad for a bit before heading back to the city. Mom says ' your dad and I were talking about this after you guys left on Saturday. We've never seen you so relaxed and easygoing. You guys look so happy!' Well, I am. This past year with Richard has been fantastic! Its amazing how the person in your life affects you (good and bad) and Richard is definately a plus. For the first time ever in my life I feel relaxed and happy with, well everything.
We go well together. Like bread and butter, chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate and strawberries, chocolate and.... ohhh a diet coke!
