Here I sit at a luxurious hotel pool in a sprawling daybed after a morning of indulgent spa treatments. Delicious. There is nothing like the luxury of a high-end hotel. I feel cosseted, rich and special. The Hunter dropped me off partly to borrow my car but also to make me feel cared for. My morning began with a huge bunch of sunflowers – a fave.
I am 4 years out from exiting my marriage. I was thinking about that first birthday on my own. I hadn’t started blogging. I made it special because I did what I wanted. A lovely massage where I cried tears of joy at my new freedom (I tipped the poor, confused masseuse well). I threw a great dinner party with a Southern theme and a hunky chef who made us all help (it was a quasi cooking class with copious amounts of wine). The next day I left on a 10-day road trip with my son & his BFF. We had a blast and I crossed the Len Hike Inn off my bucket list.
What a journey. Tomorrow I am having dinner with some dear friends at a restaurant that features live jazz – that is the Hunter’s gift to me. I spent the 4th having fun at a laidback, quirky town event followed by beach – I was in heaven.
Although I don’t have the income I want (patience & perseverance will prevail) and my current living quarters are not a home, my son living with us for the summer is proving to be a bit cramping on my sexual side, All of those things are temporary. I have my health, the Hunter and am surrounded by love.I feel relaxed and strong.
