I started off the New Year in the ER, after what started as a cold snowballed into full on sickness. Needless to say I was quarantined in the house for the better half of the week and weekend. By Sunday morning, cabin fever was in full force and I was finally feeling like myself again. B and I both woke up early and decided to take a stroll around the neighborhood to get some fresh air and ease myself into rejoining society.
Before B and I were married, I asked him to promise me that he would always take walks with me. So far, he's been good to his word. Every time we take walks or run, I always notice elderly couples walking together; I tell you, I think there is some magic to it. Together, without the distractions of iPhones and TV's, meeting our neighbors, laughing, slowing down, just simple time together.
