I am in a relationship and I want to share a slice of its loveliness here with you. I’ll be honest, I very much wanted to post delightful pictures of us, allowing YOU to see and celebrate US. But he’s more private than I am, and leery about being active on social media. At some point perhaps he’ll change his mind and agree to let me show you his gorgeous face, but until then I respect his preference. #thefacebookreveal
Those of you lucky enough to know Carl from the “real world” know that he is a prince of a man. He is kind, generous, wise, introspective and self-aware, pragmatic and principled, sentimental and deliberate, a good friend, a smooth-as-butter salsa dancer, and a master of witty off-the-cuff analogies. #truly
We were friends for more than a year, and I was slow to see what was developing. At one point I even tried to hook him up with a friend of mine! As he describes it, during that period we were “platonic dating”. 🙂 Thankfully, I finally woke up and began to question my ‘friend zone’ status for him. However slow I was to see it … from day one, he has been an absolute gift in my life and I trust all unfolded in its perfect timing. #friendsfirst
We’re both in our early 40s, each well practiced at living alone, something we’d grown to prefer. After almost a year of splitting the week between two homes, we took the leap and now live together (more on that soon). It’s a transition for sure, and I can of course only speak for myself, but I personally am in awe of how easy it has felt. #oneroof
So far, our journeys have included: a weekend jaunt to see botanical gardens in Pennsylvania, numerous hikes in Maryland and Virginia, a houseboat stay in Tennessee, processing at an Inauguration “Party” in DC and, soon after, the Women’s March, a birthday getaway on the beaches of Delaware, a family reunion in Connecticut, exploring my old stomping ground in Rhode Island … to name a few. We’ve only just begun. Together, we are horizon-gazing with many adventures ahead. Specifically, a great big exciting and unconventional Lifestyle Experiment in the works. More on that soon. #advenuresahead
It feels good to be sharing this. 

May your dreams always inspire more than they intimidate,
