You are my adventure.


After our great weekend in New York, we were still so happy to come back to D.C. While walking back from Union Station, we got talking about this special wonderful stage of life. This is the time where we can take adventures. We don’t have yards to mow, kids to watch, or pets to take to the vet. In one sense, we can be utterly selfish, focusing on not much beyond each other. One of the great things about marriage is having my best friend with me and dreaming about going on adventures. We like to talk about trips we would love to take, trips to Australia and New Zealand, back to France and across Germany. Even if we don’t get take all this trips, it’s fun to dream about them.  For now, we settle for smaller adventures. New York for a weekend, or Charlottesville, or Pittsburgh, or even just late night milkshakes when we should be eating healthy. Each one a little adventure.

It won’t always be like this. Someday our adventures will be taking our kids on fieldtrips, or trying to buy a house, or staying up late to help with homework.

But I’m still counting all that. Because this man is my adventure.

    You are the trip I did not take;
    You are the pearls I could not buy;
    You are my blue Italian lake;
    You are my piece of foreign sky.

    You are my Honolulu moon;
    You are the book I did not write;
    You are my heart’s unuttered tune;
    You are my candle in the night.

    You are the flower beneath the snow,
    In my dark sky a bit of blue,
    Answering Disappointment’s blow,
    With “I am happy! I have you.”
    -Random pinterest quote I love

      I love that! I wonder who actually wrote it. Corny… but so so true! (And very pinterest quote board worthy.)

      My mother had that first verse in her writing on the back of a photo, she put it on that photo in 1956. When I first googled it in 6/2000 I found it was an author unknown poem. Now I found it attributed to Ann Campbell. I do not know if this is true.

    i just had to chime in and say that if your adventures take you to germany sometime this year, come visit us! we are going to have a 3 bedroom apartment for the sole purpose of conveniently housing guests. seriously. come! and more about what you actually wrote… this is great. you have such a beautiful perspective about what adventure means now and what it will mean later, and how, regardless of when or how, it’s wonderful.
