I just realized today that there’s not many days left of 2015. Only three to speak of, in fact.
This time last year, we were busy enjoying ourselves on the shores of Miami at the Mondrian South Beach (see here), though this year we’re (thankfully) opting for a much more subdued New Years… given hubby’s work schedule, my recovering health, and our upcoming epic trip back to New Zealand in February, 2016.
Let’s just pretend that this is week 3 of my reflection series (never mind that it comes more than five months later!).
These were taken on a sunny late November afternoon in Bergamo, Italy – during our recent trip to Europe, which I’ve yet to fully report on (behind is my middle name). We had a few hours to explore the old town before heading back for the wedding. The walk itself was incredibly quaint and charming (if a bit chilly), and I can’t remember the last time where hubs and I just held hands and meandered around somewhere aimlessly. Excellent excuse to snuggle!
Moments like this remind me of a trip we took to Malta many moons ago (circa 2010).
This goes without saying, but I feel like we have to constantly remind ourselves to give more to each other in our relationships. It’s much too tempting to take one another for granted (far too easy in fact, particularly when you have a child)… but it is always incredibly pivotal, not to mention rewarding, to dedicate yourself solely to the other every now and again.
So here’s an early New Year’s resolution, to try and plan more of these mini excursions with hubs (even if it’s not as exotic as Northern Italy) in 2016… life’s too short to just stand by and take each other for granted!
