Weekend Freedom

Last weekend was the first time it happened
Less stuff (to do) meant more time to be

It was so freeing
We made plans
Just for fun

We started Saturday morning by each doing something that made us happy
I spent two hours in my studio creating, playing, enjoying every minute
MP took a LONG and strenuous bike ride to the gym and back
He came home wrecked and happy

And that launched our weekend 
We filled it with outdoor Art and holding hands
Laughter and lunch with friends
A swim and meeting a new neighbor who is our age alive and vibrant
living a similar minimalist life

And a Nap!
A Sunday nap.
It was heavenly

This was a weekend unheard of a year ago
so much time
so much fun
so much enthusiasm for life and the ability to take in all its offerings

And… no guilt for all the things we ‘should’ have done
This is what we hoped for when we made the big decisions

I think we’ve arrived
at least for a while

And now…I’m off to plan another weekend
Full of all the things I love. 
Which will most definitely include another Sunday nap
