Michael and I finally got out together on our road bikes! Yes- together! We made the big step in our lives and also for our marriage and decided to get a babysitter. God, being the awesome God he is, didn't leave us out to dry! He put a wonderful young lady into our lives. We couldn't be more blessed when it comes to the one we found to take care of Bennett! She is absolutely fabulous. I'm not disclosing her name to you. Sorry- she's ours. :o) :o) :o)
Tonight was totally awesome though. Best 3.5 hours we've had alone together in awhile (out of the house). ;o) We drank some energy supps to get even more pumped up....
It was time to hit the pavement! We rode through the streets of the Augusta Road area, which brought back lots of memories of when we lived on that side of town when we found out about Bennett! We then got on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and headed out of downtown and made a bee-line for the first place we lived together- The Lofts of Greenville! We loved that place. It had it's negatives- but all-in-all, it was a pretty awesome place to live when we were youngins'!
If you're looking at the pictures with the full view behind us (above), ours was the dead center on the very top (the tall section of the building)! That was the only window in our entire place! A little secret...we had actually considered moving back there right before we decided to buy our house we just moved into. Probably best we didn't. Not the best set up for a baby. :o)
It was funny thinking back on all the places I've been with Michael as we rode around tonight. From first the swanky urban loft, to then the two bedroom over-priced stone cottage in downtown, to then the Suburban rental with lots of ants and roof leaks with a bad landlord, and now to our very first home with loads of room to spare and grow a family :o) It's amazing to see how far we've come together.
I'm so happy I met him and so happy to be pedaling beside him on this crazy, bumpy, and curvy-swervy road of life.
