It seems as of late my tag tem partner and I have been completely stressed out. Whether it be completing many of the tasks for 9.24 (our wedding for you new DP devotees), our search for a new apartment, planning a shower/party, our hectic summer schedule for traveling, and of course, work, the past couple of months have been a grind.
I’ll admit, the schedule took such a toll on me that I requested a day-off from work due to feeling slightly burned out. With the last vacation we have taken being in November of 2009 (The California Chronicles), we both were in need of a day of relaxation. Or as we both like to call it, a day of well, “doing nothing”.
As part of this “do-nothing” day, we decided to head to the beach for the afternoon-evening, and that is exactly what we did. Without attempting to make what we did sound exciting for the sole purpose of this blogpost, we just chilled out on the beach, played catch with the football, read, and enjoyed the day – most notably the sunset that came later.
As we relaxed under the sunset at Jones Beach in Long Island, it was sheer therapeutic. A chance to recharge our batteries as we gear up for what is now T-minus 80 days until 9.24.
It was a day and a moment that makes you realize that sometimes we are so busy planning for life, that we often miss it.
