The older I get, and the further I grow into my marriage, parenting, and just life in general, the more I appreciate the simplicity of things. A quiet morning. A cool breeze. . . . The smell of fall with a light drizzle. Even the lack of a radio as I listen to the engine in my car purr.
And so as it is, I enjoyed spending time with Mel and PJ for so many reasons. But the greatest of these is their simplicity. And it would seem that they ooze this simple nature about them, even onto their surroundings. So much so, in fact, that when I arrived home and began flipping through the images, I kinda’ just let out a sigh and went . . . “This is the good stuff. No distractions. No craziness. Just love. Cut away the unnecessary and get to the reality of why we’re here.” A gentle touch. The grazing of finger tips on a cheek. A little smile or a nervous laugh and the world made sense again. At least to me. And I’m pretty sure since Mel and PJ met all those years ago the world has always made sense to them because it’s plain to see, and entirely undeniable how destined for each other these two truly are.
