You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Henry David Thoreau
We find ourselves in a “celebration cycle” these last few weeks. This weekend we are celebrating our birthdays—mine is on September 17, and Julie’s is on September 18.
It seems like each day brings something fun as we connect with family and friends one last time before we leave for Spain.
We share cups of coffee, glasses of wine, and wonderful meals as we talk about our plans, hug, and wish one another well for the coming year.
We even have a wedding to cap it all off the day before we leave – our nephew (and godson), Derek Zaffini his fiancé Gina Lewis – bound to be a fun event.
We know that this is a season to celebrate and share with others the exciting adventure that awaits us. We won’t be eating out like this or scurrying about when we’re in Spain. But, we are enjoying this moment that we do have. It’s part of the journey.
