the new normal

this looks familiar

the other night, as Austin and I were climbing into his truck,
 i asked him if he thought moments like these would ever get old

the weather was the prettiest
and the sun was shinning
and we were headed out together
on a little grocery store dinner mission
and we were all bits of happy and excited

i was telling my mom how fun being normal was...
she said its the new normal
and it so is!

  i do realize it all sounds so brady bunch
but, i learn more and more its the very littlest of things you miss the most

so for the baseball off-season, this will be our new normal
and it feels so good!

I agree, it is the small things you miss the most. My boyfriend and I have lived 3 hours away from each other for the past 3 years. Sometimes I just want to come home from work and cook dinner with him and watch tv or go to the gym together. Just be "normal" together.

How wonderful to find such joy in the normal. Being away from him can really make you appreciate the little moments that I guess we can sometimes forget when we don't have that time away.
