I was inspired by Shoko to do something about what can quickly become a lackluster routine so at least once a month and more if we can manage, Alan and I have decided to make a fuss about trying something new together! The only rule- restaurants don't count. We eat all the time anyways!
This comes on the heels of nothing groundbreaking, just an effort by two people who work (a.lot.) to be better together! We kicked off our adventures on Sunday with a long bike ride around Central Park.
Neither one of us had ever ridden bikes there (Alan had never even been!) so it really was quite exciting for us both! The park was bustling with activity and we made stops along the way to really soak up our surroundings. The sun peaked out eventually but even in a gray overcast the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir was breathtaking.
Alongside the tree-lined Tranverse Road, a violinist was playing beautiful Sunday hymns. Rejoice. Rejoice. Emmaa-anuel. Of course we parked it for a few to listen!
Alan thought it would be a good idea to add a video to each "adventure" post in the series so here goes, if you like! I was a little shy in front of the passersby (and you!) but hopefully I'll get better :) Have you ever done anything to help better a relationship in your life? Did it work? Let's compare notes!
p.s. For reasons beyond what I can come to fathom, Alan has taken to calling me Rocky. Did you notice? Awesome.
