taking a drive so we can talk it out

Hey lovey...



Let's get in this car and just drive.  

Do you mind driving?  That way I can hold the coffees we buy on the way out of town since this old(er) car doesn't seem to have cup holders.  "Where are we driving to?"- you ask.  Just pick a direction and go.  We're pretending after all, so we have no cares in the world - just this car, the open road, and two friends talking the day away.

Since we're at it, you know pretending and all - it's not too hot and not a blizzard outside, so we can roll down the windows and just breathe in the non-smog-like air.  It's pretty much heaven.  I love that we're just driving, see the storefronts turn into open road, and then just fields and fields of grass and nature at our sides.

Oh, I brought a blanket and a little picnic lunch.  It's in the trunk.  Yeah, pull over.  That's your favorite sandwich and drink....I know:)  So, let's talk.   How are you?  How are things?  Are you happy?  What would make this day even better?

You know, I know some days can be really tough.  I know some days you want to get under the covers and not come out for days.  I get it.  I get like that sometimes, too.  I used to get like that a lot, actually.  But for some reason, there was a switch in my feelings.  I stopped wanting to make everything perfect and just let it be.  I just started breathing.  No, not everything is how I would want it.  Not everything is picture perfect - but it's my kind of perfect.

I really want that for you.  Maybe you already have that.  That is so awesome!  But maybe it's not.  That's why I wanted to take this little pretend drive with you.  I wanted to take some time and see how you are.  How you really are, not how you want others to think you are.  Do you get what I'm saying? 

I'm here to talk.  I'm here to take a ride with you and see where this journey takes us.  We're in this together, you know.

Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
