I believe having a good life requires only one thing: thankfulness. It’s a matter of heart, not of circumstance. I imagine if you’ve gotten through your adolescents alive, you can name a year that you shudder to relive. Maybe even a few years. I sure had one for the record books. It was a year of loneliness, aloneness, isolation, and did I mention loneliness? But I can not even begin to be sorry for it, because it has made this season of my life a bountiful blessing. Had it been an easy transition, graduating college, starting a business, and trying to live off of minimum wage, I would not smile like I do when I see blue or smell salty ocean air or laugh at being a snowbird at 26 or even smell green the same way.
So THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart and Katie’s heart, for allowing us, our beautiful, amazing, ridiculously fantastic couples, for choosing us. What A Year!
P.S. I, Amelia, am in Florida, but Katie is still in the Shenandoah Valley.
P.P.S. So that means we are still located in Virginia for our future couples, just in case this confuses you.
P.P.P.S . I highly recommend moving south for the winter. I’m just beating the old folks at their game. #theyreontosomething #wateraerobicsanyone
