Feelin' Groovy

As some of you may know, due to some health complications, I've been under the weather, for oh six months or so. But, after finally visiting my doctor again and some adjustments to my medication, I'm finally feeling fabulous! I'd say I'm feeling like my old self again, but honestly, I don't remember the last time I felt this good!

Anyway, I don't know how long this feeling will last (hopefully for a long time), but I'm taking advantage of every good minute that I get! I apologize in advance if I get to happy and positive for ya'll, but honestly I just can't help it.

Armed with this new energy and a beautiful day, yesterday Brian, Allen, and I went for a lovely bike ride through our neighborhood. We rode past the river, and down by Brian's favorite piece of property facing the water. We marveled at how out of shape we were as we pushed ourselves to go over the smallest of hills. We discussed whether it was lack of practice or added weight that made us so much less steady on the bike (remember when you could ride, no-handed?). The wind blew through our hair, the sun warmed us (maybe a little too much), and Allen provided random commentary (at one point announcing, "I'm a grown man, baby" from his luxurious trailer hitched to Daddy's bike).

Then we stopped at the park. Oh the park ... how Allen has missed you! We played hide-and-seek, and swung on the swings ...

I even climbed over the top of the monkey bars, at Allen's request:
All in all it was a fabulous outing. So fabulous that we decided to ride our bikes to Nana and Papa's house for dinner. Dad made homemade Margaritas (boy were they strong), and Allen found some new shoes:
What a fantastic day!

Last post, I was proud of you. Now I'm just really,Really, REALLY happy for you! I sorta know that feeling. I started on a new medication, and all of a sudden had the energy to clean my house again. Your energy sounds so much more fun than mine. I wish I could ride a bike outside. I could go swing on the swings. Hmm...maybe I should do that this evening. I bet Josh would even give me a push.

he is SO beautiful! as are you. thank your for your sweet comment, I really needed it. It's been rocky lately, but the trials have opened our eyes and things are better than I could ever have imagined. Isn't it funny how sometimes we have to feel the pain to know the extent of our love? Everything is more than wonderful and I love my husband :) I really enjoy your blog as well, it's beautiful!

I'm so happy to hear you are feeling energetic. Wow, even climbing the monkey bars. Can't remember the last time I did that. I guess you made it home safe and sound after your dad's margaritas. Wish I could have been there to enjoy one with you.
